If you’re looking for a healthy side dish that tastes good, then try these blueberry balsamic Brussels sprouts. They are sweet and tangy with crunchy pieces of sugar-coated brussels in every bite. Quick and easy to make
The “blueberry seedlings” are a great way to start your garden. They can be planted in the ground or in containers. The blueberries will grow into small plants that produce berries all summer long.
A wonderful addition to your Christmas table is oven roasted brussels sprouts with a blueberry balsamic sauce sprinkled with bacon and blue cheese!
For as long as I can remember, blueberries have been a part of my life. My family has traveled to our summer cottage in Nova Scotia every summer since I was a baby (at the age of one month). It is situated on a collection of islands in the most beautiful coastline environment imaginable.
While the light glints off the water, tall coniferous trees burrow themselves between rocks all the way to the beach. On their way to the open sea to capture cod, halibut, and herring, fishermen may be seen every day. And a beautiful saline breeze rushes in, immediately calming your spirit.
Our villa is situated on the calm side of the bay, which is home to lobsters, scallops, and blue herons. You approach it from the rear, and as you go down the boardwalk towards the home, you’ll see a vast, open blueberry patch on your left.
My sister and I have been picking blueberries in that area for as long as I can remember. We get out giant plastic measuring cups and repurposed yogurt cartons and stuff them full of delicious blueberries.
As you can see, blueberries and I get along swimmingly.
While I and many others connect blueberries with the summer, they are really available all year in the frozen area of the supermarket. So I’ve opted to cook using blueberries for Thanksgiving this year.
Broma is serving Blueberry Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts today. While the concept of balsamic-glazed brussels sprouts seemed perfect for the holidays, I wanted to try something new. So I added blueberries to my balsamic reduction and was blown away.
The blueberries give the brussels sprouts an incredible amount of warmth. While most homemade balsamic glazes are highly acidic, the blueberries’ glucose absorbs all of the unpleasant acidity.
These brussels sprouts are the celebrity of the side dish association, tossed with bacon and blue cheese.
And as for me, this meal transports me back to my childhood days of gathering blueberries from the bushes in the early light while wearing my pajamas and wellies.
The Blueberry Council’s website has the whole recipe.
