To begin making Creamed Peas I quartered some pearl onions.

Then I poured some almond milk into a medium size sauce pan over medium heat.

I added in the cut up pearl onions along with some paprika, salt and pepper.

Next I used a bit more almond milk to mix with Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour to make a paste.

I whisked the paste into the warm milk mixture.

I allowed the sauce to thicken and just begin to boil before reducing the heat to simmer and adding a can of drained peas.

I allowed the peas to cook for about 5 minutes in the sauce.

Serve it directly from the stove or transfer the Creamed Peas to a serving dish.

Add a dash of colour to your dinner plate with this creamy side dish.
