I made this to go with fish instead of the conventional parsley sauce, as peas and white fish work very well together.


Ingredients


Method

  1. Put the onion, garlic and butter into the bowl 25 minutes / 100°C / Speed Spoon / MC Off, increasing to Speed 1 after 15 minutes
  2. Add the peas and the stock 10 minutes / 100°C / Speed 5 / MC On
  3. Scrape down the inside of the bowl
  4. Purée 2 minutes / Speed 9, stopping from time to time to re-scrape the bowl and lid
  5. Add the milk
  6. Purée for a further 20 seconds / Speed 9

Serving suggestions

Serve as a sauce or dip, depending on how thick you make it (see Variations below)

Recipe source

  • Adapted from a recipe for Cream of Garden Peas in Fast and Easy Cooking, the book supplied with Thermomixes in the UK

Variations

You can thicken the mixture by adding more peas. Add more stock or milk to thin down, but I doubt if you would want it to be much thinner. Add herbs, spices or other flavourings if desired.

Chef's notes

Some people may feel that 25 minutes to cook the onions and garlic is too long. Personally, I find that a longer cooking time gives you maximum flavour from the ingredients.
