DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, add butter. When it’s melted and starts sizzling, add shallots and quickly sauté them for 1 minute or until soft.
  • Add pressed garlic and sauté for only 30 seconds. Add flour and whisk continuously for 2 minutes to remove the raw taste from it – this will also help to thicken the sauce.
  • Slowly pour in half-and-half and continue whisking for a couple of minutes as well or until the mixture is fairly smooth. Pour in the chicken broth and keep whisking.
  • As the sauce starts to thicken slowly, add sugar, fresh chopped thyme, sea salt and white pepper. Continue whisking for another minute or so or until the sauce has a beautiful consistency without turning into a thick gravy.
  • Add the peas and stir until everything is well blended, reduce the heat to medium low and medium, and cook for 5 minutes, enough to warm up the peas. When the time is up, taste and adjust if necessary and serve immediately.
