I have been making granola for years. There are some delicious recipes out there. But I have always wanted to try muesli and see what was different and if it was better. So, I did, I bought a box. Tried one of the recipes of leaving it in the yogurt overnight (you can do this with milk too) and then eating it in the morning with some fresh strawberries. Muesli is delicious and so easy, instructions below, no baking! Not that I am against baking, but please I have 10 month old, anything I can do easier, I'm in. For this recipe of yogurt soaked muesli, if you forget to do it the night before, you can eat it straight out, it just is a little more crunchy. I bet this is delicious warmed with milk in the winter...
1/2 cup muesli (recipe follows)
1/2 cup yogurt your choice (i love organic, plain, whole milk of any persuasion)
1/2 cup of fruit (washed and cut up)
1. mix the muesli and yogurt together, leave in the fridge overnight
2. top with fruit and enjoy
4 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
1/2 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup oat bran
1 cup sultanas (golden raisins, a personal favorite use any dried fruit you like)
1/2 cup chopped brazilian nuts (also personal choice)
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1. mix all of the ingriedents
2. store in air tight container away from sun and heat and enjoy for up to a month
As always, much love, many blessings, and happy mixing...
It an arabic word for "Welcome, please sit down, dinner is served."
But it is more of a term of endearment for your guests. I am sure I am butchering phonetically.
I baked my first cake when I was two. Growing up in my house with an Egyptian Father and a Cuban Mother, you learn very quickly that food is the ubiquitous language of love. We would have arroz con frijoles negros one night, and macrona bel crema the next. The beauty of food is that there are no geographical boundaries, it's art, it's emotion, it's healing, and all food is manna from above.
I'm sure my dad is up in heaven welcoming people to his table all the time with this warm word. My mom is still down here cooking up a storm, and I will be sure to share both families recipes with you.
