Peas, Mushrooms and Celery with Tarragon

We like this vegetable combination that can be served year-round if you use frozen peas.  Ready in minutes, it spruces up plain vegetables without buying a costly prepared mix, and you get more of the goodies too.  We liked the crisp crunch of celery.  You can use any herb your family likes instead of tarragon, or leave it out and let the sumptuous taste of real butter shine through.

  1. I like peas, mushrooms and celery. But, have not used tarragon. So cannot say whether I like it or not.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Tarragon is good with this...but it's perfectly good without it, especially if you use real butter

  2. I'm sure that will be just as delicious as it looks in the photo.
    Tell me, what else is on the plate besides the baked potato?

    1. That is Sorghum Dijon Roasted Salmon.
      If you don't have sorghum, try mixing a little brown sugar with the mustard, or use mild molasses or even maple syrup. It's all good!
