ON-TREND – PLANT-BASED PUREES

Plant-based purées are pushing further into menus

Trends

The opportunity with plant-based purées keeps pushing further into menu development, energized by a number of factors, from the hummus boom and veg-centric innovation to chefs looking to add complexity to textural combinations. At Just Be Kitchen, a paleo and gluten/grain-free restaurant in Denver, the menu gets creative with plant-based purées.

 

In its Wonder: Seasonal Veggie Hash, the spring/summer version stars roasted broccoli, mushrooms and asparagus, celeriac crisps, and a citrus-mint-almond gremolata, with a sweet potato purée as the base of the dish. The breakfast version gets a poached egg on top.

In fall and winter, the hash switches out the sweet potato for a cauliflower purée and a cashew crema. “The Wonder is a menu favorite that changes with the season,” says Jennifer Peters, founder. “We are always looking for a build on a soft base like the whipped purée or ‘crema’ to pair with the crunch of veggies and gremolata.”

 

Chicago’s Beatnik pairs charred broccolini with sunflower hummus, nuoc cham, pomegranate seeds and puffed rice, demonstrating modern textural play.
