This post is based on a NaBloPoMo prompt: Tell us about a recipe you learned to make from the Internet.
Today I want to share my – and probably my partner’s – favourite recipe: red pepper and goat cheese muffins. I found this recipe a few years ago on the culinary blog of a high school friend and have since made it my own. Truth be told, if red peppers weren’t so expensive and these muffins didn’t take me an hour to make, I would make them every week and probably would have come up with a few variations by now!
For this recipe, you will need:
- 1 red pepper
- 100g goat cheese (you can also use feta)
- 100g flour (any kind)
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 8 cL soy milk
Also add one or all of the following (try a small quantity the first time):
- cumin powder
- curry powder
The following ingredients are optional:
- grated cheese
- 1 knife
- 1 teaspoon
- 1 tablespoon
- 1 measuring cup
- 1 salad bowl
- 6 muffin moulds
In the salad bowl:
- Chop the red pepper and goat cheese.
- Add the egg, olive oil, soy milk, and grated cheese.
- Stir them all together.
- Add the flour, baking powder and salt and/or cumin powder and/or curry powder.
- Stir them all together again!
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
- Divide the batter in the muffin moulds while adding hazelnuts (I put 3 on top of each muffin).
- You can also add grated cheese on top of the muffins.
- Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes.
- Serve with salad or a light side dish.
Two or three muffins per person are usually enough as the muffins are quite dense. I will make sure to take a photo and add it to this post the next time I bake them!
