Savoury Cheese and Vegetable Muffins

                

Savoury muffins loaded with cheese and vegetables make a delicious and filling snack. These egg-less butter-less muffins are healthy as they are made with whole wheat flour, yogurt, mixed vegetables and cheese. These savory cheese and vegetable muffins can be made ahead of time and are perfect for lunchboxes, picnics or on-the-go breakfast for busy mornings. Seasoned with dried Italian herbs, chilli flakes, salt and blackpepper, these muffins are cheesy, moist, delectable and oh so addictive! 

                   

Let's see what goes in this savory cheese and vegetable Muffins: The Ingredients
  • Whole Wheat Flour : Replaciing APF with whole wheat flour makes the bakes guilt-free. I have also used a bit of semolina in this recipe.
  • Vegetables: I have used frozen sweet corn, green peas, carrots and onions. You may use any vegetables of your choice.
  • Curd: Curd makes the muffins moist and delectable. Use thick curd.
  • Oil : use any neutral cooking oil.
  • Cheese: I have used Cheedar cheese.
  • Seasoning: I have used Italian dried mixed herbs , chili flakes and powdered black pepper corn and salt as seasoning.

Wheat Flour Savory Bakes is the 92nd theme on our Facebook gourmet group, Healthy Wealthy Cuisines, where a group of like-minded food bloggers share their culinary skills every fortnight depending upon pre decided themes. This theme is suggested by Sasmita, a talented and versatile co-blogger. Sasmita's blog is a home to many authentic Odia dishes and i am amazed with her vegan and gluten-free recipes. I have bookmarked her Kesar Badam Lassi Muffins and Dalgona Muffin to try out soon.  Sasmita suggested that we share some healthy savory bakes using whole wheat flour. These savoury cheese and vegetable muffins are my contribution towards the theme. Following are the contributions by my fellow bloggers on this theme.
