Greater than the sum of its simple parts, this vegan-friendly, kid-friendly, quick as a flash to make soup may well become a staple for your midweek dinner or weekend lunch.
I use red lentils as they're quick to prepare for starters: no soaking, and they cook in just 10 minutes making them a favourite with many of our customers. Another factor in their popularity is flavour - they're milder and sweeter than other varieties of lentils, making them suitable to a broader palate.
The addition of garlic, turmeric and ginger makes this a practically weaponised bowl of goodness as we head into the colder months, while the lemon and gremolata give it an unexpected twist and a fresh, light sparkle for your taste buds.
There are a lot of mueslis on the market, and for good reason - endless personal preferences mean endless variations! But there's one preference that I don't see many brands addressing: if you don't like fruit in your morning muesli bowl, odds are you won't find something to suit you on the supermarket shelves, unless you're prepared to sell a family heirloom to support a paleo muesli habit.
See - and I know I'm not alone here- I am not a fan of fruit in muesli. Often I find that even the fruit free commercial mueslis are way too sweet. So about 7 years ago I set about making my own, and haven’t looked back.
I love the flexibility of mixing ingredients depending on how I’m feeling at the time. In more recent times, since our son got braces, we've had to pay attention to the nut content - a rogue nut can now mean a trip back to the orthodontist! Making my own muesli means I can change things up to suit changing moods and requirements. More nuts one batch, nut free the next. Changing the sweetener between honey or maple syrup. Adding a splash of vanilla extract when I'm feeling decadent, or adding more seeds when I want to feel pious.
And so finally, after 4+ years of surprisingly in-depth discussions with you, our customers, and requests for us to Please For The Love Of Breakfast Suzanne Will You Share Your Muesli Recipe, here it is. Finely tuned, curated and perfected over the years, it's ready to meet its public. My family and I hope you love it as much as we do.
