There was a time when my daughter refused to eat vegetables and meat in puree, soups, and any other type of meal. In search of inspiration how to get her to eat these important nutrition groups again, I came across this awesome recipe for muffins with vegetables in the blog Vkusnoteka. In the original recipe they are made with grated zucchini and cheese, but I experimented with adding peas, carrots, pepper and chicken and they were just as good. 12 muffins are made from this dose so you can also check how good the muffins are.
Muffins with vegetables
200 g flour
100 g yogurt
50 g water
2 egg yolks (or 1 whole egg if the child is 1 year or older)
5 tablespoons ghee, butter or olive oil
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt if the child is 1 year or older
For the filling: a handful of peas and 100 g yellow cheese \ grated zucchini and 100 g cheese \ 1 carrot and 1 red pepper \ 100 g chicken fillet
How to cook it:
Preheat the oven to 200 °. In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks\ egg, the yoghurt and the ghee\butter\olive oil. Pour the liquid mixture in with the dry mixture and stir with a spoon. Then add a filling of your choosing. Peas, carrots and peppers should be dipped in hot water beforehand, and the zucchini should be squeezed and drained from the water. Boil the chicken fillet for 15 minutes and chop into a blender. Stir well.
Spoon the mixture into prepared muffin cups, I use silicone. If you have paper cups, grease them beforehand to avoid sticking. Bake for about half an hour. Check if they are ready with a toothpick and cool. Enjoy!
