As the holiday season is quickly approaching, menu planning begins early. Always on the pursuit to make the food we eat healthy and deletable with a fun twist to classics; this recipe was created.
Blueberries are so versatile, easy to incorporate or substitute into other classic “berry” dishes, and are nutritionally a powerhouse. Blueberries contain vitamin C, help boost immunity – who doesn’t need this during the crazy holiday season? The lovely blue color comes from anthocyanins- which are a sub-class of flavonoids which are believed to help counter the build-up of plaque in your arteries. Lastly, they help with boosting brain activity and reducing memory loss. This delectable recipe can be found here in its entirety. The Blueberry Council also has an incredible recipe index to help you incorporate these berries into your diet. And the Blueberry Council is also hosting a giveaway which you can enter here.
I used this recipe atop of crostini with vegan cream cheese and some fresh sage. We’ve also used it on pancakes, toast, on oatmeal – you name it. Other ideas if you’re vegetarian – this would be fantastic on baked brie. And for carnivores, think of this to top your favorite protein. It also can totally replace the old standby cranberry sauce for sure on your holiday table. The flavors are complex yet subtle. My kids even love it.#littlechanges #themerryberry.
