Soup for Breakfast?

Having soup for breakfast might sound strange but I promise this Swedish Blueberry Soup will make you a believer!

I had never seen or tried blueberry soup until a swedish couple we met while on vacation in Italy last month told me about it. Apparently, it’s a very common dish in the winter for breakfast in areas of Sweden. It’s often served at ski resorts around the country to help warm up skiers after a day of snow-filled activities.

Warm blueberries stewed in lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of maple syrup creates the coziest bowl of goodness you’ve ever had. Top it with a dollop of greek yogurt and toasted almonds and you have a filling breakfast that the whole family will love.

Blueberries are a fantastic source of antioxidants, which can help prevent against certain cancers and protect against age-related memory loss. They are also a good source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese and are low in calories.

The soup itself can be made in advance and just reheated in the morning for a simple breakfast that’s ready in no time.

      Thanks so much Bethany! I had never tried it either but after making it (and eating the entire bowl!) I am hooked! It’s so warming and would make the perfect cold weather breakfast.

    Interesting! That does sound nice on a cold winter morning. I might serve mine with some vanilla Greek yogurt!

      Thanks Stacey! It’s good on it’s own but I topped mine with plain greek yogurt but vanilla or even coconut flavored greek yogurt would be so great!

    This is such a creative and unique recipe! Both my husband and I LOVE blueberries so this is definitely something I’d love to whip together. Love the addition of nutmeg also!

      we love blueberries at our house too, plus you can use frozen blueberries so it’s so simple to have the ingredients on hand to make it.
