During an epic ninety-five-recipe shoot with a client, we were flooded with back-to-back dishes to photograph, but thanks to an incredibly organized team of chefs, we were able to flow through the shots very easily—that is, until the muesli dish came out to the shooting table. All of a sudden, the shoot came to a halt. We asked to have a taste of the muesli, and it was so good that the shoot was stalled until we had finished the whole bowl. We had forgotten how much we love muesli, a dish made of uncooked oats soaked in milk, yogurt, or juice and then topped with fruit or nuts. Muesli stands as one of our favorite breakfasts. Our inspired version here is soaked in fresh orange juice and topped with fresh orange slices and a heaping serving of nuts and fruit. We call it our Mighty Muesli.
To serve, spoon the muesli into bowls. Top with the pistachio mixture and the orange segments.
