Breakfast, the most important meal of the day.
Sadly I don’t eat breakfast very often, bad boy I am… I know…
Then I discovered granola. Who’d have thought it is so easy to make granola? Just add some rolled oats with dried fruits and sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds into glorious brown sugar, maple syrup and then toast it! I think I would eat anything that is coated in brown sugar and maple syrup, no questions ask.
I am still on the ‘molecular gastronomy’ rampage with my siphon canister at the moment and foaming anything and everything! Chocolate, cream, you name it. Then I also discovered foaming Greek yoghurt! Boy, the end result is a light, fluffy, tangy foam of morning glory!
Hence, my own version of homemade toasted granola, with Greek yoghurt foam and the Weetbix sable was born. I think I will eat breakfast more often from now.
