One of my favorite side dishes - warm and creamy potatoes, a fresh pop of sweet peas. The ultimate comfort side dish! Not sure what to do with your tiny little new potatoes from the garden? This is the recipe I love to make each summer when the potatoes have been dug and I have fresh, penny/quarter sized potatoes. Best part - no need to peel them!
3 cups peas, cooked
3 hand-fulls of new potatoes, cooked
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 Tbsp. corn starch
water to cover corn starch
salt and pepper to taste
Wash potatoes. Cut larger potatoes into halves or quarters, keeping skins on. Boil in salted water until all are fork tender. Drain and set aside. Cook peas and set aside.
Heat heavy cream, salt, and pepper in a sauce pan until just starting to bubble. Add corn starch to a cup, and just cover with water ( about 3 Tbsp.) Mix well and add to the cream when it starts to bubble. Whisk until thickened.
Fold potatoes and peas into the cream and enjoy!
