Bring the Thanksgiving table together with BC Blueberries

  • Bring the Thanksgiving table together with BC Blueberries
This Thanksgiving, bring the whole family together to celebrate nature’s bounty with nature’s candy: BC blueberries! Take a turkey trot to the farmer’s market or grocery store for frozen BC blueberries and wow your potluck posse with a delicious dish that that will please even the most persnickety palates. Whether you dine on Sunday or Monday, with a turkey or a ham, with family, friends, or all of the above, everyone can enjoy a delicious and unexpected dish made with these little blue powerhouses.
 
A Warm Blueberry Bisque is one recipe you won’t want to save for a rainy day. Enjoy it as an appetizer to kick start your Thanksgiving feast with a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals in a delicious and creamy soup. Packed with fibre and vitamin C, blueberries are one ingredient that won’t put you into a food coma this holiday season. Thanksgiving purists will love a new take on stuffing with Savoury Blueberry Stuffing and will go nuts for Quick Blueberry-Cranberry Relish. Keep the cranberry sauce you love and enhance it with blueberries and chopped walnuts or pecans – a veritable cornucopia of antioxidant rich superfoods. Elevate your dinner even further with a Berry Blueberry Chutney drizzled over turkey for a dressing that guests will gobble up in no time.
 
One of the many blessings that come with a Thanksgiving feast are the leftovers – and that’s the time to really talk turkey. Rather than having dry sandwiches for a week, turn a new leaf and make an easy Creamy Smoked Turkey and Blueberry Salad that not only tastes great, but will make you feel great too. Consuming BC Blueberries promotes heart, brain, and blood sugar health, and will get you back into your post-long weekend routine faster than you can say “tryptophan.” And that’s something to be grateful for!

Wild Mushroom Biryani

Wild Mushroom Biryani
This impressive dish does require a little extra effort that a normal curry but all it needs to go with it is a simple raita and if you can then a green or salad on the side but anything more would detract from the biryani. I like to use a few different types of mushroom so that there are different textures as well as flavours, choose those you like and if your budget allows, buy a few wild, special mushrooms, if not stick to shiitake, oyster and large chestnut mushrooms. Balance the flavour of your sauce using the cream or tomato puree and season knowing that the rice is barely seasoned.
