Green Peas in Dill Cream Sauce-Eating the Alphabet

The letters for the Eating the Alphabet Challenge hosted by Brenda at Meal Planning Magic are P, Q, and R.  I had planned to make a pea salad.  However due to recent extensive dental work, I am needing to eat soft food.  Fortunately, I had a pea recipe in my drafts that I have not yet posted

Adding a cream sauce is one of my favorite ways to fix many kinds of vegetables.  I used dill as the main flavoring ingredient this time, but I have also used curry powder and many other herbs, spices and spice blends.  The seasoning is limited only your the imagination.  I love having a good basic, easy changeable recipe on hand to use when making vegetables.

Cooked fresh or frozen vegetables or drained, canned vegetables are interchangeable in this recipe.  Some people prefer one over the other.

Green Peas in Dill Cream Sauce
1 (12 oz.) pkg. frozen peas or about 3 cups
2 T. butter
3 T. flour
1 c. milk
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. dill weed
1/4 t. pepper
1/2 t. salt

Cook and drain peas.  Set aside.  Melt butter in a medium saucepan.  Stir in flour and cook, stirring for a minute or two.  Slowly add milk, stirring well with a whisk.  Stir in garlic powder, dill weed, pepper and salt.  Mix well.  Add peas and heat through.  Makes 4 to 6 servings

There are still a few letters left.  You can find all about how to join in the fun by visiting Brenda's Eating the Alphabet information page.
