Make Your Own: Broccoli, Cheese and Yogurt Muffins
These muffins are a convenient way to use up old yogurt as well as any spare veggies you have in the fridge. The recipe calls for broccoli but I have made them with various other combinations. The batch pictured are peas, carrots and broccoli. If I am changing up the greens I just substitute half the broccoli for about a cup of vegetables.
I make this with homemade yogurt (blog post on its way), which allows you to choose how sour and strong the yogurt flavour is. The sweeter the yogurt the sweeter the muffins, funnily enough. If you don’t have enough yogurt you can substitute milk.

In a seperate bowl mix the flour and salt and then fold into the wet mixture. Add a little milk if too dry. Don’t over mix it.
