Whenever I see berries at the green grocer, I get super excited at the prospect of making wonderful berry-licious dishes – like this.
The fun part about this specific recipe is that you can decide how decadent or healthy you want to serve it. IT can basically be serves as a breakfast, dessert or snack. You decide. The idea is basically to combine a variety of fresh, seasonal berries & nuts. It’s up to you what type of berries you want to go for. I prefer to stick with blue / purple & red berries. The pomegranate rubies are a must though to make it extra special. (This specific time I also used green grapes to bulk up the desert, but I actually prefer it without the green.)
Blue & red berry treat with pomegranate & nuts, serves 6 – 8
You need about 4 – 6 punnets of berries in total (eg, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries & blackberries, or substitute one of the berries with two big handfuls of seedless grapes)
Pomegranate rubies from half a pomegranate
1x cup of raw, unsalted mixed nuts
Juice of half a lemon
Optional – to serve: Crème fraîche (my preference), plain double cream or fat free yogurt, mascarpone cheese; & if you’re keen to serve with pancakes, on breakfast muffins or waffles, go for it.
Halve the pomegranate, whack out the rubies (with a wooden spoon) & remove all the skins. Now rinse all the berries. Mix all the ingredients together, sprinkle with the lemon juice & serve with a few dollops of crème fraîche.
Once again, this is more of a throw together than an actual recipe. So my style – quick, fresh & delicious!
