Bircher Muesli Recipe
Gluten Free Recipe
Bircher muesli in its original form was little more than oats and grated apple. Thankfully, it has evolved into something with infinite variations. This one is gluten-free, made with cooked rice instead of oats. If you like, add a teaspoon or two of protein powder to the muesli or serve with a small protein powder drink for a more substantial start to the day.
This recipe is gluten free, dairy free and detox friendly.
1 large Granny Smith apple, unpeeled, halved, cored and grated
1-2/3 cup cooked medium-grain rice
6-1/2 oz carton vanilla soy yogurt
1/3 cup soy or rice milk
2 tablespoons sultanas
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons psyllium seed husk
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
2 tablespoons raw pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds)
1/3 cup fresh blueberries (or other fresh fruit), to serve
Combine apple, rice, yogurt, milk, sultanas, lemon juice and psyllium in a bowl. Mix well. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight to soak.
Before serving, stir almonds and pepitas into the rice mixture and spoon into bowls. Top with fruit and serve. Serves 2.
Note: Muesli mixture will keep in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 2 days. Add the nuts and seeds just before serving.
