Recipe | Honeyed Turmeric Muesli – Without Honey

Honeyed Turmeric Muesli – Without Honey

Looking for that perfect portable recipe that you can pack for work, picnics or dinner parties? You'll love this recipe! It's quick to make, it keeps well in the fridge, and will stay fresh-tasting even after hours outside of the fridge, and yet it is not a dry recipe at all!
Do you miss honey on a vegan diet? I've got a secret berry for you that tastes remarkably like honey, especially in this recipe.
"Honeyed" Turmeric Muesli is moist, full of flavor, a little chewy (you can adjust to how chewy or smooth you prefer), and warming – excellent for the cold winter and chilly autumn and spring. The ingredients in this recipe are healing, soothing, and exploding with flavor. Don't be shy, give it a try!
This recipe serves one very hungry person as a full meal, or two to five people as a side dish or snack.
  • 3 apples or pears, roughly chopped (cores removed)
  • 1 cup dried mulberries (for the honey-like flavor)
  • 4 dried apricots
  • 2 tablespoons peeled and minced turmeric root (use 2 teaspoons powdered if fresh is unavailable)
  • 1 teaspoon peeled and minced ginger root (use ½ teaspoon powdered if fresh is unavailable)
  • 1 cup soaked oat groats (soak overnight in drinking water, rinse thoroughly with drinking water)

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ¼ cup chopped kale
  • ¼ cup chopped chard
  • 1 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1 Brazil nut

Blackberry, parsley, dried mulberries and strawberries on Turmeric Muesli

Directions:

  1. Put all fresh roots and oats in the food processor along with dried apricots. You may use another dried fruit instead of dried apricots such as figs or dried currants. I use dried apricots because they are lower calorie and higher nutrition than many other dried fruits as I illustrated in my book, Vitamin Confusion Solution. Also add any stems you might be adding for extra nutrition, such as a couple of kale stems and a chard stem. And, if you're using a Brazil nut, add this at the beginning as well.
  2. Blend these tough ingredients first until you have nearly a paste. If you want a very crunchy thick texture, reserve half the oat groats until after blending the dried fruit and roots to nearly a paste.
  3. Add dried mulberries and pulse until broken up. If using any dried herbs, spices or seeds, add them at this time. If a very honey-like flavor is desired, use additional dried mulberries. If you reserved half the oat groats before, add them now and pulse with the mulberries.
  4. Lastly, add apple chunks and pulse into small easy-to-spoon pieces. This will take ten to thirty pulses depending on your food processor.

The most incredible things I've ever learned from reading, I learned from stories. Stories are more memorable. They create images and time-lines in our minds. They give us all the background information that lead up to a great moment, a great realization, a great break-through.
In reality, we only truly grasp ("grok") something through personal experience. We can not add to our experience through reading dry data. But we really can and do add to our experience with stories. The more detailed, authentic, and dynamic the story, the more there is for us to learn from it. The more it resonates with us and touches us, the more we retain what we've learned.
It is because of this that I'm writing my own life as a series of autobiographical novels.
