I went on a market yesterday and found an amazing leafs of a spinach. I had to buy them (since I love the taste of spinach) and figure out how to use it. While I was looking for an inspiration, Food Beam blog was very helpful, and I’ve started to bake muffins. It must be delicious, because Tomasz had six of them at once (again!).
You will need (for 12):
- 30g of butter
- 1 small onion, finely sliced
- 1 big clove of garlic , finely chopped
- 1 chili pepper, finely chopped
- 350g of flour
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder a
- big pinch of black pepper
- 200g of cheddar, grated
- 250g of milk
- 1 egg
- 130g of spinach
Preheat the oven to 170°C.
Melt the butter on a frying pan and fry the onion on a medium heat till golden, then add the garlic and the chili and mix it well to combine the flavors.
In one bowl stir the flour, baking powder, pepper and cheddar, in another bowl beat the milk and egg together, then mix dry and liquid ingredients together. Now you can use hands or a wooden spoon to mix in the onions and spinach.
Divide the dough into twelve holes muffin-tin and bake for 35 minutes. When it’s golden and smells delicious, cool it for few minutes and enjoy with a bit of butter an a cup of fresh coffee.
