for 2 persons:
- 200 gr. frozen peas
- 200 gr. carrots, cleaned and diced
- 2 tbsp alpro soya baking and frying
- 1 shallot or a small onion, finely chopped
- for the lovers: a clove of garlic, pressed
- pepper, salt, thyme, 1 bay leaf
- 1.5 dl water
- cornstarch express
Heat the butter in a bowl with a lid over medium heat. Stew the onion or shallot in it, and for those who like it, the look is translucent. Add the carrots and let it simmer under the lid for 10 minutes. Add the herbs according to taste , bay leaf , peas and water and let it simmer for another 15 minutes .
Thicken the sauce with some cornflour express.
You can of course vary a bit in the herbs and other ingredients. For example , try adding some cumin seeds . A teaspoon is sufficient, otherwise the taste will dominate too much. Along with a little curry powder. Or a Provencal spice mix…
A pinch of saffron powder is also possible! In this case only continue to use the combination with salt and pepper . For a natural taste.
For example, add a peeled and diced tomato. Then add it along with the peas.
Finishing the peas and carrots with some cream is also very tasty! Add a little cream and let the sauce thicken a bit. In this case you can omit the cornflour. Unless you think the sauce is still too runny.
