In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic, stirring, until fragrant,about 1 minute. Add onion; cook, stirring, until softened, about 6 minutes.

Stir in blueberries, ketchup, honey and vinegar; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until thickened and blueberries have popped, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Pour half of the glaze into bowl; purée with immersion blender. Stir back into remaining glaze. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days.)
