Polish Peas and Carrots {Marchewka z Groszkiem}

This is one of those “hole-crap-I’m-running-late-with-dinner” type of dishes. It takes about 10 minutes to make, takes zero prep, and kids love it. What’s not to love? Smooth, mild sauce with slightly crunchy carrots and sweet peas. I’m a fan. It may be a comfort food for a lot of Poles. Marchewka z groszkiem [mar-hev-kah z grosh-kyem] had a reserved spot on every childcare center’s menu, served probably a few times a month, so if you went to a Polish przedszkole for any amount of time, you’ve been “exposed” to it from an early age.

  1. Melt butter in a medium sauce pan, add flour and heat for about 20 seconds.
