The refrigerator light goes on...

When I started on this recipe I was going to make a traditional creamy peas. They were good, but the mustard and tarragon makes this really special.


Creamed Peas

Servings: 2 | Serving size: 2/3 cup

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

This recipe can easily be multiplied but does not make very good leftovers.

1 1/3 cup frozen peas
2 Tbsp water
1/8 small salt
1/8 tsp dried tarragon
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
1 tsp coarse ground mustard
1 ounce reduced fat cream cheese

Place the peas in a small pan over medium high heat. Add the water, salt, tarragon and pepper.

Cook for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally.

As the water is almost evaporated, reduce the heat to medium. Add the mustard and cream cheese. Cook for about 3 minutes until the cheese is melted. Serve.
