Suggestions to serve
The cream of peas tastes specific, very nice and smooth to the palate. We can incorporate some type of complement as peas, swearwords of crisp ham or bacon.
Particularly, we do not like to add to the main ingredient as complement to the vegetable cream. The flavor of the pea already is sharp in the vegetable cream, since the onion as the leek does not cover the own flavor of the pea. For that reason, to add peas as complement is to equal the flavor that already has the plate.
As you see, it is a simple cream prescription of peas, realised in the wonderful foot processor that is the Thermomix.
If we added all the times of preparation, he is as the total time is inferior to 20 minutes, which becomes a prescription to which to go when we do not have many ideas and we are eating of healthful form.
Ten in account that you can pronounce the flavor still more if you replace the water by vegetable broth. Another idea is to add the water plus a condiment tablet.
Like it happens in the marrow cream, the cream of peas in Thermomix combines very well with any cheese type. To choose between quesitos, to add cremosidad, or some strong cheese, according to the pleasures.
