After a fun weekend of food, drinks and repeat I decided to come home and make something light for dinner.
My mom taped a Bill Granger episode where he made muesli.. so after watching it I was inspired to give it a try. Bill was saying he lives by the philosophy that
Breakfast should be wholesome, lunch should be light and dinner should be prepared in 20 minutes.
I so agree!
So here is the muesli. I made a few modifications to his ingredients as I just worked with what I had in my pantry. The quantities are approximate, and very easy to just tailor it to your preferences.
1) In a baking tray, add 3 cups of oats, and a handful of almonds, sesame seeds, linseed and pumpkin kernels.
2) Add 2 tablespoons of oil and about 1/2 cup of apple juice.
3) Bake in 180 degree Celsius oven for about 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
4) When ready, add dome dried fruit. I went with blueberries.
So good! What I love about homemade muesli is there are no preservatives, additives or funny ingredients. You are in full control of what goes in and you know that the ingredients are all good for you.
I transferred the muesli into smaller containers and put some in zip lock bags – perfect paired with yoghurt for a quick and easy packed lunch.
Tonight I went with a Chobani blueberry yoghurt, and added some banana, orange and a big scoop of muesli 🙂
I then made a nice green smoothie to go with it. Kept it very simple with spinach leaves, apple and ice. Clean, lean and green.
What is on your plate this Sunday evening?
