Creamy Baked Asparagus and Peas

This makes a nice home-style side dish, without the use of actual fatty cream, since flour is used to thicken milk instead.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and lightly grease a shallow baking pan.
  2. Cut off and discard the lower, fibrous part of the asparagus stems (take about 1-2 inches off the bottom).
  3. Then chop the rest of the asparagus into 1-inch long pieces and place them in a pan, immersed in water.
  4. Boil until just tender and then drain the excess water.
  5. In a saucepan over medium heat, saute the onion in olive oil until translucent.
  6. Add flour and stir in the milk.
  7. Cook until it starts to thicken.
  8. Stir in salt, pepper, and parsley.
  9. Add the asparagus and peas to this mixture.
  10. Turn vegetables into the prepared pan and sprinkle the bread/cracker crumbs over it.
  11. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until it looks bubbly.

This was an awesome side dish and easy to make. I put the frozen peas into the boiling water when the asparagus was tender, stired and drained. I well use 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper in the recipe next time.

I don't care much for peas, but I tried it with green and white asparagus (just for color variation) and it turned out great!

Very good. I fudged a bit and used canned peas and asparagus as I was pressed for time. A good side dish.
