i'm not including a photo of my luscious bowl of creaminess, because it wouldn't do it justice. in fact, it might come out looking kind of gross. but i am here to say that after months of not getting around to it, i finally made the bircher muesli recipe i hunted down on the red kitchen, and it is scrumptious. m loves it too, but no one else around here has tried it yet. although one of boo's favorite breakfasts is oats in vanilla yogurt, he is deeply suspicious of pieces of fruit lurking around in any food.
so i veganized this recipe thus: soak some oats in a bit of soy milk overnight. the next morning, stir them up with vanilla soy yogurt, grate some apple in there, and chop up any fresh or dried fruit and nuts you have and stir em in. i am inordinately fond of creamy comfort food-type things, so if you're not (i.e. if you're my dad!) you may not like this as much as i do. this is especially good with the greek-style yogurt you can get at trader joe's, or if you have a donvier yogurt cheese maker like i do, that's good too (it's basically a strainer with a fine mesh sieve-type thing to make the yogurt thicker).
and no, i'm not a real vegan. i just play one on tv. actually, i just like the challenge of cooking really yummy things than just happen to be vegan. in addition to aspiring to consume fewer animal products.
and yes, i'm a little obsessed with food lately. luckily, i'm equally obsessed with going to the gym.
