Vegan Sweet Pea Kombucha Puree

by Amie on December 31, 2010

Trying to decide what to serve tnite for your New Year’s Eve dinner party? How about something that can be used as an appetizer dip with veggies, a topping on baked fish and even added to dessert recipes for a hint of natural sweetness and a kick of kombucha.

Have you ever heard of a kombucha puree?  Me neither. That’s why I decided to get a lil’ creative this morning in my kitchen and whip up an incredibly delicious and versatile puree that I’m going to be using in my breakfast oats, my morning salad and my evening Greek yogurt parfait with fresh fruit.  Why not, right?

Go, ahead. Whip this baby up.

I assure you, your New Year’s guests will be beggin’ for the recipe.

You can serve with tortilla chips, hummus, guacamole and vegan cheese with crackers.

Happy New Year!

I would never think to use kombucha in a recipe. I’ve only ever heard about it as a beverage to sip.
