Creamed Peas and Carrots

I've never had creamed peas and carrots, but I've been holding onto this recipe for quite awhile and wanted to give it a try. Not only was it delicious but my whole family really enjoyed this unique vegetable side dish.-Sarah

4 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
3 c. frozen peas
1 T. cornstarch
1/2 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
1/2 cup half and half
  • Place carrot slices in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer 10 minutes, covered.
  • Add frozen peas to pan and return to a boil. Cover and simmer 5-10 minutes.
  • Drain, reserving 1/2 cup liquid.
  • Return veggies and liquid to the pan.
  • In a small bowl combine cornstarch, salt, pepper and half and half. Mix until smooth.
  • Stir into veggies, bring all to a simmer and cook just until thickened.
