It’s still hot here. It was 102º F on Tuesday. Instead of hot cereal, I made müesli with some cooked whole wheat couscous I had on hand. I also threw in some uncooked rolled oats, sliced almonds, pistachios, and chopped fresh figs (I heart fresh figs, too bad season is so short). I used soy yogurt instead of the traditional yogurt or cream. I spiced the cereal with Chinese 5-spice and sweetened it a bit with maple syrup. Müesli, like granola, can be made in infinite variations depending on your mood and what you have on hand. This was my Vegan Tuesday version.
