a super easy way to make oats exciting, juicy and crunchy, sweet and yet fresh at the same time.
Part of my YouTube interview series is that guests share a recent favorite and easy to make recipe. This week's (and the very first) guest on my YouTube channel is Sören and his recent favorite recipe is this Bircher Muesli from Borussia Dortmund's team Chef Dennis Rother.
Let me just say it did not disappoint!
This dish tastes even better after letting it soften and blend for a few hours or over night.
Make this for breakfast the night before, prepare a large portion for the entire week or throw it together a few hours before serving to really make the most out of the textures and flavors.
1 medium apple
1 medium banana
1 medium carrot
50 g yogurt (regular or plant-based)
150 g quark ( or creamy cottage cheese, regular or plant-based)
50 ml milk (or any alternative milk)
80 g oats
Optional: honey or maple syrup, walnuts, almonds, pecans.
Wash the apple and peel the carrot. Then use a grater to grate the apple, the banana and the carrot into a large mixing bowl.
Take a separate bowl and mix your yogurt, and quark or cream cheese until it's all well combined.
Transfer the yogurt mixture into the large mixing bowl as well and add mix everything well together. Add your oats, linseed and chia seeds on top and keep working on blending all of this together.
For an extra bit of sweetness you can drizzle this with honey and for added crunch top it all with some chopped nuts and seeds of your choice and mix again.
If you are happy with a thicker consistency you can leave it like this, but if you enjoy a little bit lighter and creamier texture it is time to add the milk. One final stir and your mixture can go to the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Top it with fruits, nuts and seeds, coconut flakes, drizzled honey or eat it as it is. It will be incredible either way.
