Sam's Gluten Free Umami Muffin Recipe
Sam has finally been persuaded to part with her top secret , rather legendary umami muffin recipe! Not only are these gluten free, they're packed full of nutrients and will fill you up too! They make a wonderfully satisfying snack or can be served as part of a meal. Enjoy them with salad and chutney, as we do here in the GOOD cafe, or with soup, as a great alternative to bread!
200g spinach puree
250g gluten free flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
75g savoury seed mix
250g sundried tomatoes, chopped
300g olives, chopped
Preheat oven to Gas Mark 5. In a pan, gently heat the spinach, margarine and milk until the margarine is melted. Set aside to cool.
Mix dry ingredients, cheddar and seed mix in a bowl, setting aside a handful of cheddar and seeds for sprinkling on top.
Add all ingredients together and mix well. Divide mixture between 12 muffin cases and sprinkle each with a little cheddar and seed mix. Bake in the oven for approximately 30mins. Enjoy warm or cold!
