    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    A rich side dish, ideally prepared with fresh peas and baby onions. Creamy with a lemony tang, a wonderful side dish, nice enough to eat by themselves! From The Inspired Vegetarian

    1. 1
      Peel the onions, and halve them if necessary. (If quite large).
    2. 2
      Melt the butter in a heavy frying pan, and fry the onions for 5 - 6 minutes over a moderate heat, until they begin to be flecked with brown.
    3. 3
      Add the peas, and stirfry for a few minutes.
    4. 4
      Add 1/4 cup water, and bring to the boil.
    5. 5
      Partially cover, and simmer for about 10 minutes, until both the peas and the onions are tender.
    6. 6
      (Frozen peas will cook more quickly).
    7. 7
      There should be a thin layer of water on the base of the pan, add a little more water if necessary, or if there is too much liquid, remove the lid, and increase the heat until the liquid is reduced.
    8. 8
      Using a small whisk, blend the cream with the flour.
    9. 9
      Remove the pan from the heat, and stir in the combined cream and flour, parsley, and seasoning to taste.
    10. 10
      Cook over a gentle heat for about 3 - 4 minutes, until the sauce is thick.
    11. 11
      Taste and adjust the seasoning, add the lemon juice to sharpen, if liked.

      This was a delcious recipe that was super easy to make! I had frozen pearl onions and peas, which I thawed, then prepared the recipe as posted. I was a little confused by the measurements, and used 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of flour. I did add the lemon juice, which provided an unexpected but pleasant tang. I will definitely make this again! Made for ZWT 8.

      I liked the recipe a lot, but my family commented on the unexpected tang of the lemon. We both enjoyed the amount of onions. (I used pearl and a 16oz bag of frozen peas). Thank t=you for sharing your recipe! Made for Fall '09 Pick A Chef.
