Blueberry and Microgreens Soup!
Happy Thursday, Soupers! Who says you can’t have blueberry soup for breakfast? Yes, you can, ‘cause my grandma Carrie said so!
Long before we had smoothies my grandma would make this recipe for us because she wanted to make sure her finicky-eating grandchildren were eating less sugary cereals and healthier alternatives. My big brother was the worst, so she would make this soup and just swap out the seasonal fruit.
So if you’re looking for a quick option, give this one a try! Oh, and if you want a darker hue, boil the berries slightly longer.
