Savoury Zucchini Muffins

Submitted by: PHRASER

Introduction

Savoury muffins are a common Australian food, but they're often full of cheese. These are lighter, healthier, free from cheese (and vegan). You could reduce the salt if you like. Just a pinch would be OK. Savoury muffins are a common Australian food, but they're often full of cheese. These are lighter, healthier, free from cheese (and vegan).

Ingredients

    Dry ingredients:
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup wholemeal flour
    7/8 cup plain flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda

    Wet ingredients:
    200mL low fat soy milk
    2 tsp apple cider vinegar
    100mL vegetable oil (I use the stuff from the jar of sun dried tomatoes for extra flavour)

    Other ingredients:
    2 zucchini, grated - about 1 3/4 cups
    8 large basil leaves, shredded
    2 TB (40mL) water, or as needed
    oil spray

Tips

Australian cup and spoon measures used - 1 cup=250mL, 1 TB=20mL.
Freezes well.


Directions

1. Heat oven to 190 degrees celcius and spray a 12-hole, half cup muffin tin with oil spray (or line with liners)
2. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl.
3. Combine wet ingredeints in a jug.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until partly combined (still streaky with flour is OK). Add the 2TB water (or more) if it's too dry. Do not mix excessively or the muffins will be tough.
5. Add the zucchini and basil and fold through - it should now look combined.
6. Spoon into muffin trays and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden. Remove from trays promptly and allow to cool on a wire rack.
