Have you noticed over the last week that the mornings have become a little milder? That the 7am sprint to the shower isn't as chilly or savage? Spring is almost in reach!
As the weather starts to warm up we often feel like a lighter breakfast that still delivers the same warmth and comfort as a bowl of oats.
Enter Rolled Rice Flakes. Quick to prepare, nutritious, gluten free and soothingly delicious, they're the perfect breakfast in a bowl, hot or cold - and we're going to walk you through both!
The idea for this dahl came to me on a sticky, 38°c summer day. The kids had requested dahl for dinner and the thought of a bowl of hot food didn't fill me with joy. I thought of ways I could rejig the ingredients and flavour profile of a traditional dahl to better suit both the weather as well us Sydneysiders' love of zesty flavours; casual meals that are simple, fresh and nourishing to boot.
The result is a dish that ticks many important boxes: it's family friendly, costs only a few cents per serve, is simple and quick to prepare, and adaptable for different palates and weather.
In the warmer months, serve this dish at room temp and garnish with coconut, mango, yoghurt and all things summer.
In winter, add an extra cup or 2 of stock, serve hot and top with chutney for a soupy hug in a bowl.
We hope you enjoy our adaptation of a family favourite!
