Cream Cheese & Blueberry Preserve on Toast

Cream Cheese & Blueberry Preserve on Toast

Our founder, Rami, loves blueberries. He also loves cheesecake. In fact, his favorite dessert of all time is blueberry cheesecake. Our recipe developer was not aware of this when she created this week’s delicious toast reminiscent of the nostalgic dessert, and made Rami a very happy man. Cream cheese infused with lemon zest topped with blueberries cooked down till plump and syrupy on whole-wheat sourdough, all sprinkled with sprigs of fresh mint. Dessert disguised as breakfast and we are here for it.

cooking time: 20 minutes

For the blueberry preserve:

  • 250 grams fresh blueberries
  • juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup (if you like things sweeter, feel free to add an additional 1 tbsp) 
Place the blueberries, lemon juice and maple syrup in a saucepan over medium heat. Let cook for 15 minutes while using a large spoon to mash the blueberries so that they break down. Set aside.

  • 100 grams cream cheese
  • zest from 1/2 a lemon

 Mix the cream cheese with the lemon zest till combined. Set aside.
