These are as delicious and healthful as they are simple. A great way to celebrate summer’s berries, or to reminisce using frozen berries in the winter. I usually serve it as a dessert or alongside a veggie omelet for breakfast.
- 1 6-oz package fresh blackberries (or frozen and thawed blackberries)
- 1 6-oz package fresh blueberries (optional. Increase the thyme, lemon, and sweetener if you do use blueberries)
- 2 tsp fresh thyme
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp agave nectar (or honey, or white/brown sugar)
- 1 or 2 peices of your favorite bread (great with whole wheat baguette, oat bran loaf, sourdough, gluten free bread…whatever you like)
Toss everything in a bowl, except blueberries if you are using them.
Mash the black berries with a fork, so there are clumps of berries, but the mixture is a little more smooth and juicy (probably not necessary if you are using frozen berries).
Then top your bread of choice. Because the berry-thyme mixture is kind of saucy, I usually toast the bread. Enjoy!
