VEGAN FROZEN PEAS

...way back in 1961 when MtAoFC was published...frozen foods were probably not used that often in fancy cooking...but the ever down-to-earth Julia includes several "frozen foods" recipes...including one for frozen artichoke bottoms...which I have yet to find in ANY freezer section...

...I have already made Julia's recipe for Canned Peas...and I was surprised that I hadn't done the frozen peas one yet...as we often have frozen peas...
...you start with a tablespoon of shallots or green onions...
...add that along with some vegan chick'n stock, salt, pepper, and vegan butter to a pan...and bring it to a boil...
...the recipe is for 10 ounces of peas...and I have a 2 lb bag...like I said we often have frozen peas...
...so I weighed out 10 ounces...
...add those to the boiling broth...
...cover and boil slowly for 5-6 minutes...then uncover and rapidly boil off any remaining liquid...
...they were simple and delicious...better than the microwave version that I usually make...

Substitutions:

Earth Balance for the butter...

  1. Ha, I wouldn't have thought she would have bothered with a recipe for this!
