4 oz. Neufchâtel cheese
3/4 cup vegetable broth
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. corn starch
1 tsp. water
Kosher salt
white pepper, ground
1 cup baby peas, fresh or frozen
2 cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen
2 Tbsp. olive oil


  1. In a small saucepan, over medium-high heat, add the vegetable broth and Neufchatel cheese.
  2. Stir until the cheese is melted and combined well with the broth. Stir in the lemon juice.
  3. Turn the sauce down to low heat and stir occasionally.
  4. In a saute pan, drizzle the olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the peas. Stir the peas so that they don't burn and keep on the heat for 2 to 3 minutes.
