I’ve been a bit sick in the last couple of weeks, so cooking and blogging a Meatless Monday recipe that doesn’t look like soupy sludge was a bit of a challenge. With a couple of friends coming for brunch I hunt around for breakfast dishes and came across Taste’s Bircher Muesli recipe. Considering the number of time I used to buy this for breakfast, I’m actually really surprised at at how easy it is to make.
- 1 gala apple, unpeeled, quartered, core removed
- 1 cup (90g) rolled oats
- 1/2 cup (125ml) apple juice
- 1/2 cup (130g) fat-free natural yoghurt, plus extra to serve
- Large pinch ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup (25g) flaked almonds
- 1/4 cup (30g) walnuts
- 2 tablespoons pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
- Blueberries, to serve
Coarsely grate the apple. Mix the grated apple, rolled oats, apple juice, yoghurt and cinnamon in a bowl until well combined. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight.
Combine the flaked almonds, walnuts and pepitas in a small bowl.
Stir half the nut mixture through the muesli with 1/2 cup of yoghurt if the muesli has been soaking overnight. (If the muesli has been soaking for 1 hour, add a little extra yoghurt only as desired.) Top with the remaining nut mixture and blueberries to serve.
Serve with honey on top or any other fruit you feel like having.
