The Life Changing Loaf of “Bread”

My daughter put me on to this loaf many years ago – it’s a nutritionist’s dream as it is packed with all things good. Fibre plus, nuts, seeds, chia, turmeric, and raw honey (or use sweetner of choice).

There are a few variations on the bread, but the one I make is based on My New Root’s recipe. I have made a couple of alterations over the years and have reproduced it below.

Similar recipes include Overnight Oats, Bondi Overnight Oats, and Sweet Quinoa and Oats Congee.

A Quick Burghul Salad with Olives, Pomegranate and Hazelnuts

A salad comes together from almost nothing

The other morning, while making coffee and getting a quick breakfast ready, I got my lunch prep underway. In no time there was a small handful of burghul (Cracked Wheat) soaking in hot water. The last of some green olives, halved. Hazlenuts quickly toasted. Some left over slivered almonds.  Onions soaking in red wine vinegar. The last of a jar of kimchi.

Burghul forms the basis of great, inspired salads made from left overs in the kitchen. You can use this recipe as a guide, and use what you have in your fridge and on your Kitchen Bench.
