Sweet Peas With Tomatoes

I have a love-hate relationship with sweet peas. Haha I haven’t had sweet peas in months! *was hating it

But today I found a packet of sweet peas in the fridge. *love at first sight all over again LOL

Sweet Peas With Tomatoes
I thought I’ll cook this sweet peas with a slight twist. Come join me!

My main ingredients are sweet peas and tomatoes with onions, milk and cream cheese (you read that right) as the supporting roles.

Sweet Peas, Tomatoes, Onions
I’m using about 150g of sweet peas, 1/2 tomatoes and 1 medium onion.

Fry Tomatoes, Onions
Put some olive oil in the pan. Fry onions and tomatoes until slightly brown to get the char sweetness. Add a few pinch of black pepper.

Sweet Peas
Next add the sweet peas and a pinch of salt. For additional zing, add some balsamic vinegar as well. Stir-fry the vegetable for about 2 minutes. Don’t over-cook the sweet peas. One thing I’ve learned is to observe the color change.

Add A Spoonful Of Cream Cheese
Now add a tablespoon of cream cheese. Stir well.

Sweet Peas With Tomatoes
For the sauce add 1/2 cup of milk. I’m using milk powder. Stir well.
I’m also adding a little bit more black pepper and salt (as I find it not umph enough; taste to your liking).

Wait for the sauce to boil then it’s done!

As you can see cooking is very subjective. It’s more to how you like the taste and if you mess up the taste, you can add another ingredient to counter the failure. But baking is a very different story. One wrong move and your cake will spell failure. That’s why I like cooking more than baking. Haha
