- 1 TB butter for 12-hole muffin pan
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup quinoa flour
- 4 ts baking powder
- 1/2 ts seasalt
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 ts grainy mustard
- fresh ground black pepper
- 100 g feta, cut into small dice
- 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
- handful basil leaves, chiffonade
- about 12 springs of thyme, chopped
- 4-6 kale leaves, chopped
Quarter the cherry tomatoes, and arrange on a foil covered baking sheet. Sprinkle with olive oil and some salt and pepper, and bake for 15 minutes until slightly wilted and caramelized, but not completely cooked. Set aside to cool.
Transfer the baked cherry tomatoes to a large mixing bowl along with the sliced basil, chopped thyme, chopped kale, toasted pine nuts, and the feta. Gently fold together. In a separate bowl beat the eggs, milk and mustard together and add to the tomato mix. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt, and sift onto the tomato mix, top with a generous dose of freshly ground black pepper and fold together just until the batter comes together, be careful not to over mix. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan, filling each hole 3/4 full. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops and sides of the muffins are golden, and the muffins have set up completely. Let cool for a couple minutes then turn out onto a cooling rack.
