I spent a very good chunk of time this week cooking lovely Indian meals from the recipes in Dishoom. With the air-quality in Los Angeles getting more and more unhealthy, staying inside to cook dinner by various intensive recipes helped me take my thoughts off the more and more heart-breaking state of affairs right here in California and West Coast. Along with the bhel puri, a number of chutneys, mattar paneer, black daal, aloo sabzi, and a technicolor-flavored garam masala, I put a splendidly candy watermelon to make use of. It was a present from a neighbor we’re fortunate to have. I used little chunks of it instead of pomegranate seeds within the bhel puri, after which whipped up this chia-centric Watermelon Raspberry Breakfast Bowl within the blender.
You possibly can see it pictured right here topped with further watermelon balls, toasted almonds, crushed freeze-dried raspberries, and a sprinkling of chia seeds. I can think about a kid-friendly model the place you serve it in a tall glass, and sink a bunch of entire watermelon balls into it. The entire recipe actually takes on the flavour of the watermelon, balanced out by the tartness of the raspberries. The important thing right here is getting your fingers on a super-sweet, high notch watermelon.
I formed the watermelon into balls with a melon baller instrument in all probability as previous as I’m. I am going to without end love consuming melons on this form, however should you do not need to go to the trouble, seedless chunks, roughly bite-sized are what you are aiming for. They go within the blender, but in addition make a simple topping if you wish to double down on the watermelon entrance.
I like making an enormous jar of this kind of breakfast utilizing no matter is seasonal as a result of they preserve properly for as much as Four-5 days. I imply, the jar is usually empty by day 2 or three, however it’s a very good make-ahead breakfast. It is also a great way to kick off your morning with some fruit, fiber, and nuts.
One final thought, and it is a private desire. I discover that with breakfast bowls of this type, I actually get pleasure from having a lot of crunchy parts on high. Right here, you possibly can see toasted almonds filling that roll, however I have a tendency to modify it up everyday. If I’ve a very good selfmade cereal mix available (like this Breakfast Magic, or this Triple Oat Breakfast Cereal) I take advantage of that. Mainly something dry with a good-amount of crunch is honest recreation and inspired.
