This post is produced in partnership with Le Creuset Canada.
Have you seen the new Le Creuset colours – Sage – “a new hue that manages to look modern and retro all at once” – and Meringue – “a shade every kitchen craves, a delicate neutral that accentuates any other hue”? Both are very spring-like (come on Spring!) and are a true breath of fresh air in Le Creuset boutiques and kitchens everywhere! I was in-store this past weekend demoing a soup from In the French kitchen with kids and the colours in the stores really make you think Spring has arrived even if yesterday it hailed and rained all day and the temps dipped below freezing 🙁
This weekend, I also got to test drive the new Minimalist Cereal Bowls in Meringue, bringing a little bit of Spring to my kitchen, and I’m in love! The colour is gorgeous and is will make any food look beautiful (also will match every kitchen!)
While there are a lot of foods I think would look gorgeous in these bowls beyond cereal (pasta, soup, desserts – even Le Creuset says they are “the ideal shape for and size for cereal, oatmeal, acai bowls, grapefruit halves or soup“), I’ve chosen to make cereal for their debut appearance. I do find them a little large for an everyday serving of cereal but for a weekend granola/ yoghurt bowl they are perfect.
This granola is a combination of my favourite flavours – chocolate and coconut – and is a nice weekend indulgence. It’s sweet enough plain (as I eat it, with just the tiniest splash of milk in the bottom (I don’t like too much milk in my cereal) but would also be perfect to top yoghurt or to enjoy with fresh fruit (bananas work well with these flavours). The base oats/ seeds/ nuts mixture is also a perfect blank canvas to add your own flavours as well, if coconut and chocolate aren’t your thing!
