Ever since I discovered what Bircher muesli is I’ve been obsessed with creating lots of breakfast recipes using that unique formula of soaking oats overnight in the fridge.
I mean OK so the original Bircher muesli was soaked overnight with water and lemon juice, and then eaten with yoghurt. Plus it was made with oats too and this one is made with quinoa.
Folks I know that once you’ve tasted this easy quinoa breakfast recipe you’ll forgive me for not quite keeping to that original recipe!
To make this quinoa bircher muesli recipe just soak cold cooked quinoa (details below how to cook quinoa) in a bowl with Greek yogurt and skimmed milk.
Add to that quinoa yogurt mixture all of the rest of the ingredients, stir them together well and place the bowl, covered into the fridge overnight.
The result is an incredibly simple, creamy and fresh tasting breakfast
