I’m having a hard time making my son eat something green..
I mean it’s just insane, he just looks at something green and he rolls his eyes. He just started to behave like this, 3 months ago, I was thinking that it’s a phase that will pass.. I'm still hoping that it's just a phase..
Well what do you know, he ate 6 muffins with broccoli and loved them.. He just didn’t know that the lovely vegetable was inside his little muffin..
Ingredients (12 muffins)
1 medium head broccoli, cut into florets remove hard pieces
1 clove garlic peel on
1 slice bacon
200 g Greek yogurt 2%
80 gr crumbled Feta Cheese
50 ml olive oil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Parmesan
Salt and pepper
1 / 2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon mild paprika
How to make
Bring to a boil plenty of water and add the florets of broccoli. Simmer for 4 minutes, drain and rinse them with cold water. Once cooled drain and keep aside.
Preheat oven to 390 degrees.
Place a nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the garlic clove. Cook it until it gets soft inside, remove from pan. Add the bacon and cook until crisp. Transfer to paper towel. Chop the bacon into small pieces.
Using a bowl combine yogurt with eggs, olive oil, parmesan, feta and just a pinch of salt and pepper. Peel the cooked clove of garlic and put it into the food processor. Add the broccoli and pulse just one – two times. Add the broccoli – garlic mixture to the yogurt mixture and mix well. Add the flour, baking powder and paprika. Mix well.
Grease the cups (even if you use paper ones, grease them too) of a tin muffin and divide the mixture. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. 5 minutes before done, remove the pan from the oven, sprinkle with some parmesan cheese and continue baking for the next 5 minutes.
