cooking bircher muesli
September 27, 2014
I like croissants for breakfast. Big flakey all-butter ones. I never eat muesli. Why would you? Miserable stuff.
Bircher muesli is an exception. I think of this as summery porridge. It’s cool, creamy and fruity and somehow feels quite indulgent despite actually being something Gwyneth Paltrow might approve of.
No recipe, because it’s too easy and straightforward, I’ll just talk you through.
You just put a handful of oats in some tupperware and pour over enough apple juice to just submerge them. Leave them in the fridge overnight and in the morning they will be all plumped up and pulpy like this
Mix them with a dollop of nice thick yoghurt, I like Total or this French stuff is very good (Waitrose).
Mix through some fruit. I like apple matchsticks and toasted almonds. Oh and dates, but didn’t have any in when I took the photos.
