Vegan Blueberry Cranberry Sauce

Make this sweet side dish for everyone around your table. So tasty, you’d never know it’s vegan!


  • 1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest to taste (use the peel from the oranges you use in the slow recipe)


  1. Wash and pick over cranberries. Place in a medium saucepan with water and sugar.
  2. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until cranberries burst.
  3. Lightly mash the cranberries with the back of your spoon or spatula to ensure all skins are broken.
  4. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cardamom, and blueberries. Stir for another minute on low heat to incorporate all ingredients.
  5. Remove from heat and add in the orange zest.
  6. Transfer to a serving dish, cover once cooled, and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
