Vegan Hot Toasted Muesli Recipe

This is a great breakfast for Spring and Autumn, when it is too warm for steaming hot porridge, yet a bit cold for fruit salad. I cook the muesli in water, but before that I dry fry it for an amazing toasted flavour. I don't have a favourite muesli anymore : store-bought or home-made, ideally without any added sugar, preparing it this way turns every muesli into a favourite. The contrast of the warm muesli, cool vegan milk and fresh fruit makes this quick breakfast very sophisticated. You could also serve it with soy or coconut yoghurt. This muesli - water ratio makes it just the way I like it, soft but still chewy. For a chewier muesli use less water and a little more for a softer consistency. For gluten-free, just make sure you choose a wheat-free and gluten-free muesli.

Method

  • Dry toast the muesli in a large frying pan or wok-shaped pan over medium heat. Stir regularly so the muesli doesn't burn ; that should take no more than 5 minutes.
  • When the muesli starts smelling deliciously toasted, add the water and lower the heat. Allow to simmer until all the water has evaporated - stir occasionally, as the muesli will have a tendency to stick to the pan.
  • Serve straight from the pan, topped with the fresh fruit and a little cold or room-temperature vegan milk or yoghurt.
