This is the first dish I decided to make with my Karoun products. The first layer of this parfait is 2% Karoun yogurt, the second is apples flambé and the third is homemade granola. This parfait is absolutely delicious and can be served as a fancy breakfast or brunch item, or as an unpretentious dessert.
The flavor and texture combination is divine: the yogurt is cold and tangy, the apples are warm and sweet, and the granola is crispy and aromatic.
Here is how I make granola,
1 1/2 c old-fashioned rolled oats
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp brown sugar, light or dark
1 tbsp + 1 tsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine all ingredients, except oats, in a large bowl. Then add oats and mix with your hands. Knead the mixture until oats are evenly coated. Spread mixture onto baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 10 min, then stir and bake for another 10 min.
Granola should be stored in an airtight container and may be kept for up to 10 days.
And now for the star of the show, apples flambé. The ingredients yield one serving, as I was cooking only for myself, so adjust accordingly. Flambé is French for flamed and it’s a cooking technique in which the flames are caused by the addition of alcohol.
1 apple, peeled, sliced
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 splash of cognac
Place first 5 ingredients in pan on medium heat. Sauté, stirring frequently, for 5 min, until a sort of syrup forms. While keeping back loose clothing, hair and other body parts, pour cognac into pan, tilt slightly toward flame and shake pan back and forth. A flame will rise and it should extinguish in a second.
Now, in a tumbler glass or bowl, layer 1/2 cup yogurt, apples and granola. Ta-da!
