Gluten Free Creamed Peas

October 8, 2018Teresa

Gluten Free Living – 2018

Gluten Free Creamed Peas are delightful. This satisfying side dish takes only about 10 minutes to prepare. That makes it really easy for holidays, special occasions or even regular family meals. I used gluten free flour to change up a favorite way to make Creamed Peas. But these Gluten Free Creamed Peas are different from your average Creamed Peas Casserole. This side dish has a little kick because it uses Creole Seasoning to gin up the flavors a little.

This side dish is especially nice to make if you have a lot of peas on hand that you’re trying to use up. I used frozen peas, but fresh peas can be substituted if you desire. You can use regular flour if you’re not concerned about gluten intolerance. The seasonings can be adjusted to your family’s needs. Also, the half-and-half can be increased if you prefer a thinner sauce. It’s tremendously versatile and one of those recipes you can easily experiment with, too.

I served it with Homemade Chicken and Dumplings for our weekly Friday night Bible study and care group meal back in May. That was one of those stick-to-the-ribs comfort meals that everyone loved. I recommend serving this dish any time you need a quick side dish. You can whip it up in a jiffy, so it’s also great for when unexpected company stops by and you need to throw something together quickly.

Back in April, we had dinner with some folks from our neighborhood. They treated us to a meal fit for kings and queens! When I asked for recipes, Linda allowed me to borrow her self-published cookbook. Her version of this recipe was in that cookbook. She used canned English peas and canned milk, so obviously those can be used as well. I prefer the taste of frozen versus canned peas, and half-and-half versus canned evaporated milk.

If you’re looking for a tasty way to enjoy peas, give this Gluten Free Creamed Peas recipe a shot. The Creole seasoning is just what the doctor ordered. 🙂

I used these ingredients. However, I don’t recommend Krusteaz gluten free flour for this recipe. That works better for cakes and baked goods. I recommend using Bob’s Red Mill all-purpose flour instead.

The sauce tends to thicken as it sits out so you may want to add additional half-and-half to thin it down a little.
