Mulvarra House | Workshop and Retreat Centre St Mullins

overnight bircher

Ingredients

  • 100 gr oats
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 350 ml milk of your choice
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • a squeeze of lemon juice
  • a few drops of vanilla essence (optional)

METHOD

We love breakfast here at Mulvarra. We try and vary our breakfasts as much as possible so that we don’t eat the same thing every day. One of the things we love to eat when spring has arrived is an overnight bircher. It literally takes you a few minutes to mix everything the night before and all you have to do is add your favourite fruit in the morning and breakfast is ready.

I owe this one to Anna Jones, who has been my go-to chef in the last two years. If you’ve been on retreats with us, chances are a lot of the food you were served was Anna Jones based!

Enough for 2 people or for more if it’s part of your breakfast
Vegetarian and vegan

  • The night before, combine all the dry ingredients into a bowl or container.
  • Add the wet ingredients and mix well.
  • Pop into the fridge overnight.
  • In the morning, add whatever fruit you like to your bowl.

    I sometimes mix some frozen red fruit in the food processor with some water and pour that over the bircher and then top it up with some toasted nuts. In the picture here I’ve used some homemade plumb compote.
