Muesli

Makes about 6 1/2-cup servings

Muesli, a European breakfast standard, is made from uncooked grains traditionally soaked in fruit juice overnight. Try this updated morning treat with rolled oats that can be eaten right away.

2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup chopped dried fruit (apples, figs, apricots, etc.)
1/2 cup raisins

Combine oats, almonds, dried fruit, and raisins. Leave whole or grind in a food processor for a finer cereal.

To serve, mix with hot or cold fortified soy- or rice milk, fruit juice, or applesauce. Top with fresh fruit if desired, and let stand a few minutes before serving.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
