Richtree Markets Oatmeal (moved from Ontario board)
I was hoping someone could help me out with a recipe. I'm looking to recreate something I had at Richtree Markets, and hopefully anybody that's eaten there might be able to help me out.
It's a small bowl of oatmeal served cold with berries, but it's been a while since I've been to a Richtree Market and since I am hundreds of miles away from the closest one, I can't buy another to figure it out on my own. If anyone could help, that would be great.
Its called Birchermuesli. I think its Swiss. You can google and get various recipes. Note - I saw them making it once at Marche... they put an unholy amount of sugar in it.
I live in Phoenix and (in the Arcadi neighborhood) we have a popular local deli/restaurant/corner gourmet grocery called La Grande Orange (http://www.lagrandeorangepizzeria.com). One of the standards they serve is Birchermuesli. It's oats with yogurt, toasted almonds and fruit (usually fresh strawberries though I prefer the blueberries). They also have good cooked oatmeal, in the winter they offer the option to have pumpkin oatmeal. (The place is a few dollars pricey--the the food and atmosphere is terrific.)
