Herbs And Vegetable Muffins aren’t sweet and are filled with delicious flavours. The following version is loaded with vegetables, much like a pie or quiche.
Play with the vegetables: replace spinach with Swiss chard, pumpkin with butternut squash, and zucchini with onion or leek; play with the herbs and include tarragon, oregano, or thyme.
The muffins are at their best when fresh and warm. If you make them ahead of time, let them warm in the oven for a few minutes before serving. You may also freeze them and pull them out at the right time to take them to the office, to picnic, or school.
If you like, bake the mixture in a 35X25 cm oiled baking pan for about 45 minutes in the oven, preheated to 180C/Gas 4.
• 2 carrots
• 200g pumpkin
• 2 zucchinis

• 1 rounded tsp baking powder
• Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
• 1 tbsp homemade pesto or a handful of shredded fresh basil leaves
• Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas4.
• Finely grate the carrots, pumpkin, and zucchini. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.

• The muffins will last for up to 3 days when stored in a closed container in the fridge. They can also be frozen for 2-3 weeks.
