Spinach Muffins

During your childhood, were you eating vegetables without problems, or were you also "allergic to the color green"?

I refined this recipe thinking about my brother as a child, he would hardly eat veggies, maybe there savory muffins would have done the trick! Super easy to do, especially if you have a food processor to help, and in less than 50 minutes you could have a tasty breakfast or starters to impress your friends!

Ingredients (12 muffins)

  • 150 gr spinach
  • 120 gr chopped pistachio 
  • 3 eggs
  • 120 ml milk
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 200 gr gluten free flour
  • 8 gr baking powder
  • 110 gr cheese (half grated gruyere, half pecorino cheese)
  • Salt, pepper as needed

  1. Use a food processor to blend the spinach together with the pistachio, eggs, milk and oil.
  2. Pour the blend in a bowl, sift in the flour with the baking powder and add the cheese. Mix well with a spatula and in the end add salt and pepper as you prefer. 
  3. Fill muffin cases two-thirds full, sprinkle the top with some chopped pistachio.
  4. Bake in pre-heated oven at 180 °C for 30 minutes. Let it cool down for at least 15 minutes before serving.

TIPS: The great thing about these savory muffins is that they can preserve up to 5 days in an air-tight container. You can also freeze them if you'd like to preserve for longer. Enjoy them as a snack, starter with friends or also for breakfast!
