*Approximate values from Xyris Foodworks software
200g pumpkin, peeled and chopped into small cubes
1 tbs olive oil
⅓ cup parmesan, grated
1 tbs thyme leaves
3 large eggs
⅓ cup milk
1 cup spelt flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
30g baby spinach
50g feta cheese
2 tbs pumpkin seeds (optional)
- Preheat oven to 200oC and bake pumpkin in 1 tbs olive oil for 25 minutes until softened and slightly golden. Let it cool slightly.
- Place parmesan, thyme, eggs, milk, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper in a food processor or a large bowl.
- Beat for 10 seconds until well combined and frothy.
- Fold in the flour until almost combined (make sure you don’t ‘over mix’ or the mixture may become tough).
- Add the spinach, feta, roasted pumpkin, and pumpkin seeds, gently folding them into the batter.
- Divide between six non-stick muffin cases, decorate with extra seeds and bake for 20 minutes (until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean).
- Let the muffins cool slightly, then remove them from the tray.
- Enjoy now or store in the fridge for up to three days.
NB: You can also freeze them and thaw them in the fridge overnight to defrost.
Why it’s good for you:
- Including parmesan, feta and milk helps you reach your recommended 2-4 serves of dairy for the day. Dairy is a great source of protein, calcium, vitamins A, B and D, potassium, iodine and phosphorus for energy, thyroid, nerve and immune function, and muscle and bone health.
- Eggs are widely considered to be a perfect protein source. They are also a great source of vital nutrients for your health and wellbeing, including omega-3 fatty acids, iron, iodine, phosphorus, selenium, B vitamins, and vitamins A, D and E.
