Vege Muffin Bites


Over the past few years I have developed a clear lunch time. It's a set break, to eat and read and reenergise. The days without it feel strange. Fridays this semester feel strange. I have no breaks between my classes and they are just spread out enough that dashing between them takes the whole break. So I made these for something to eat while I run across campus between classes. Or more accurately, while I wait at the traffic lights. I thought something small and veg filled would be good to keep that brain functioning and energy high.

I don't want to say that these were a success. But they weren't bad either... I should probably have cooked the onions a bit first. Their flavour is a bit strong and smells out whatever container I put them in.

I will experiment with this a bit but if you want to try in the meantime, this was what I used:

Veges
2 kumara, grated
4 carrots, grated
2 zucchini, grated
1 red onion, chopped
a handful basil, chopped
⅓ cup grated cheese
 

Batter
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp ground chilli
salt and pepper
1 egg
50g butter, melted
enough milk to bring it all together

They might be tasty with a quiche batter too.
