the perfect breakfast

people of Hanoi, Vietnam getting their morning baguette with various fillings.

when starting to edit the photos for this post i realised something. today i had basically the same thing for breakfast as i had for dessert in the evening. maybe that says something about how well the flavors match. or a lot about me…? anyways, i’ll start with sharing, maybe not a recipe, but a great summer breakfast combo.

Yoghurt and strawberries  Yoghurt and strawberries

i love yoghurt for breakfast. but i’m afraid i’m quite picky, it cannot be sweet and definitely not too sour. when i was a kid i almost never had yoghurt or sour cream for breakfast, always cheese sandwiches. i’m still a sucker for both cheese and bread but lately i’ve discovered that my body is not too pleased when i start of every day chewing down loads of wheat. even though i still indulge in bread and cheese breakfasts (couldn’t go without them!) my standard in the morning is yoghurt. funnily enough, it was when living in japan (the non-lacto country) that i started to like yoghurt. i believe it was because my host family used to buy this plain, very thick and not too sour yoghurt that i’d eat with apples and top it with a kinako, sesame and sugar powder (i’ll give you the recipe one of these days). coming back to sweden i discovered turkish yoghurt – the perfection. it’s like scooping out perfectly thawed ice-cream, thick and so smooth. we finish of two buckets a week.. anyways, now to one of the many perfect variations of toppings. when not having granola at hand i’d usually go for nuts, cinnamon and agave syrup. today i got my eyes on a carton of strawberries in the fridge, and this is what i ended upp with.

yoghurt of your liking (thick and not too sour –> turkish)
a couple of strawberries
date syrup

yoghurt, sliced strawberries on top and then drizzle with the syrup. the date flavor is perfect with the strawberries and doesn’t add too much sweetness (the strawberries speak for themselves in that aspect)
