Green Peas puree or sauce is usually served over rice or cornmeal and some people (like me) just eat it alone as a green peas soup. It’s so delicious!

Ingredients for Sòs Pwa Frans (Green Peas sauce):

  • 2 cups or 20oz. of frozen green peas
  • 10-14 cups of water
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 sprigs of scallion
  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 Maggie bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 spoon of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 scotch bonnet/hot pepper (optional)
  1. In a big pot add the green peas, garlic cloves, scallion and 1 thyme. Boil it for 30 minutes or until tender. (Add water if needed)
  2. Strain the water into another container for later use.
  3. Add the peas and the other ingredients to a blender with some of the strain water and 1 Maggie bouillon.
  4. Blend it adding strain water if needed.
  5. Once it’s blended, put the puree into a net colander and drain everything into a pot. With a wood spoon move the puree to rinse all the water.
  6.  Once all the puree went through the colander, put the pot to a minimum boil.
  7. Add a pinch of salt, the scotch bonnet pepper and 1 thyme branch. (A little secret, I use 1 spoon of Parmesan cheese to add thickness and flavor to the sauce)
  8. Cover the pot and steam the sauce for 10 min.
  9. Serve with white rice or drink it as a soup.
