Weekly Veggie: Strawberry n' Pea Compote

Another Compote? Yes... it's true.
I hope this doesn't bore you too much, and I promise it's totally worth trying.
Have it in place of a salad dressing, on top of pasta, with cheeze, stuff it into cucumber, zucchini, or even mushroom. It's versatile, I swear! Oh, and it's also very easy to make.
Strawberry n' Pea Compote
1 c Strawberries - chopped
1 c Peas (in pod)
1/2 c Red Onion - chopped
1/2 c Green Bell Pepper - chopped
1 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar //or// Apple Cider vinegar
1/2 tsp Lemon Pepper
Optional: one or two pinches of Sea Salt 
Pulse the above ingredients in food processor until evenly minced - be careful not to puree this, you don't want a smoothie. You can also opt to hand mince the ingredients if you don't have a food processor.

  1. Hi sarafae, used your recipe yesterday to stuff cucumber and mushrooms and it was - yumm!

    Also played with your falafel recipe without dehydrator, though I had to adjust it a little as I did not have all the ingredients at hand. Loved it.

    Thanks for your effort and inspiration! :-)

  2. I never would've thought to combine those flavors but it looks so lovely - very colorful and refreshing!

  3. Hi Fran! Thank you SOSOSO much for this comment!!
    I'm always hoping to hear from anyone who's tried a recipe. You've made my night :)

  4. It was sort of a bizarre surprise when I made this recipe Heidi - it reminds me of a twist on Pico De Gallo, with Strawberries instead of Tomato. :)

  5. What a beautiful combination! It looks gorgeous and refreshing!

  6. This looks really fresh and tasty! I love the contrast of colours of the strawberries and the peas.

  7. Thank you Brad! I was really surprised by the outcome - using fruit and veggies together can sometimes be scary for me.
