I remember years ago Jamie Oliver made this breakfast mush that looked awesome, on his Naked Chef programme. Now it was ages ago, so I can’t remember exactly what went into it but I remember it had oats, dried fruit, apples and a shitload of milk! It's kind of like cold porridge but WAY more awesome and it's really healthy too!
So here is my version, minus the cow pus and stupid name. I was going to call it Salola, then I realised that name was wank too.
2 cups of oats
1 cup of dried fruit – any combo you like (roughly, I used ¼ cranberries, ¼ dates, ½ cup sultanas
½ cup goji berries**
½ cup oatbran
A slack handful* of brazil nuts (I used 8)
A slack handful of blanched almonds (I used 14)
¼ cup ½ cup of seeds (use whatever you like, mine is just a mixture of pumpkin and sunflower seeds)
½ tsp allspice
Pinch of salt
A tablespoon or so of agave nectar (optional)
1 granny smith apple.
Into the bowl, add the agave and then pour on enough soymilk to cover the cereal. Grate the apple straight into the bowl and mix well.
* Slack handful is my dad’s term (to describe how many sweets he’d just stolen from us probably).
**Goji berries – apparently they’re a superfood and I got this big bag of these, on special, from my local Julian Graves store. Normally I would use way less cuz these little suckas are pricey – they’re pretty though! Basically you need 1½ cups of dried fruit. They taste a bit weird straight outta the bag but once they’re all pumped up with soymilk the next morning, they taste awesome. And did I mention they’re pretty?
