DirectionsSteam your potates and peas till tender. Prepare you pearl onions by boiling for 5 minutes and removing skins. Mix all three in a bowl once you have your sauce ready to pour over them.Add your butter to a sauce pan and melt on medium heat. Once melted add in your flour and whisk till it is a paste. Now add your cream and keep whisking. Keep stirring till it begins to thicken. About 5 to 7 minutes or so. I like to add just a little fresh grated nutmeg but that is optional. If you need it thicker add a little more flour. If too thick add a little milk or more cream.
Prepare sauce and pour over veggies.Now mix your cream sauce in with the veggies and coat well. Add your salt and pepper and you are ready to serve.If using frozen peas this is a good brand to find.Here is a photo of fresh peas that were just shelled.
