Company Peas

Company Peas is a vintage recipe that has graced many dinner tables over several generations. I’m not really a big fan of peas, but I like this dish. The creamy mushroom sauce is so tasty! I find it masks whatever it is I don’t like about peas.

Plus, it’s easy peasy to make. See what I did there?! Anyways, it’s a quick side dish to whip in 35 minutes. Serve this recipe with beef, chicken or whatever other protein you are making for dinner. It’s versatile and goes with practically anything!

Peas can be a bit boring and I find the ingredients help to liven it up. I love all the different flavors and textures that work so well together.

Ingredients

You’ll need to gather these ingredients to make the recipe.

  • Butter
  • Frozen peas – you’ll need to cook them first. If you wanted to use canned peas, they might be a bit mushier than their frozen counterparts.
  • Bean sprouts
  • Mushrooms – I like fresh mushrooms, but canned would also work.
  • Can of Cream of Mushroom soup – You don’t need to add anything (like water or milk). Just use the soup itself directly from the can.
  • Slivered almonds – Toast the nuts them first! I use the stovetop method because it’s quick.
  • Salt and pepper
