1001 Muesli Recipes
An Introduction
One-page cookbooks offer a new, easy way of looking at cooking. They are aimed at the amateur cook. No cooking terms are used, no knowledge is assumed on the part of the reader, no complicated steps are listed out, no exact measurements are given and there is absolutely nothing to memorise.

Learn one recipe and cook a thousand more
Each recipe is broken into three easy parts, which are also numbered. You can mix and match these numbered ‘building blocks’ (one from each column) to prepare a new dish.

For example: In the following cookbook, rye muesli with fruit can be prepared by combining rye flakes (column 1, block 7), fresh fruits (column 2, block 0) and milk (column 3, block 1). Similarly, make cheese muesli with the number 056.

Easy to refer
One-page cookbooks are designed for easy reference. Hang it in the kitchen and thousands of recipes are right there, in front of you!

Focus on creativity, not manual skill
One-page cookbooks encourage creativity by not focusing on details or on manual skill. Recipes that are too complicated have been given a miss. All the listed recipes have been designed so a novice can cook it - on the very first try.

Muesli is a breakfast cereal usually made from rolled oats, fruit and nuts, eaten mixed with yogurt or milk. Introduced by a Swiss physician in 1900, it soon became a popular breakfast cereal in the west. Filled with fruit, whole grains and nuts, muesli is a healthy way to start the day.
The original Bircher - Benner Muesli recipe: A spoon of rolled oats, a spoon of lemon juice, a spoon of sweet cream, a spoon of crushed nuts (hazelnuts / almonds) and a grated sour apple - all mixed together.
Cereal flakes are made by steaming and flattening cereals. This process partially cooks the cereal. Though corn flakes are the most popular, all cereals can be flaked/rolled. All of these can be mixed in with muesli.

Toasting cereals: Heat a pan. Add a handful of rolled/ flaked cereals. Stir and toast 5 minutes on medium heat.
 
Probably because most consumers do not realize how simple it is to make Muesli, manufacturers make a killing on it. A kg of packaged Muesli in India costs Ps. 320 — nearly 10 times the cost of the ingredients.
With dry fruits / nuts, rice flakes, corn flakes and oat flakes being available at dirt cheap rates, all you need to do is to mix them up to have your own muesli. Muesli lasts for months and needs no refrigeration. So you can easily mix up a big batch on a lazy Sunday and live off it for months. Mix in some powdered milk while mixing muesli, all you need to do is to add water while eating. This then becomes an ideal travel / camping food and an emergency meal. Have a small pack in your office 1 car / briefcase and you have food security for a day. Three handfuls of muesli can power your body for a full day! Fresh fruits can really liven up muesli. Use loads of fresh, seasonal fruits with muesli and you’ll never go back to oily / heavy breakfasts again!
