SAVOURY MUFFINS WITH OLIVES, TOMATO & AROMATIC HERBS




SAVOURY MUFFINS WITH OLIVES, TOMATO & AROMATIC HERBS



Yes, they are what they look like, muffins, but savoury! A slightly different way of eating them and also surprising as their flavour really reminds of pizza! No need to talk about the smell when they are baking!!

With the mediterranean flavours of the tomato and the olives, along with the aromatic herbs as oregano, rosemary and thyme, and the final spicy touch of the chipotle smoked salt… sounds (you’ll see that also tastes) great, doesn’t it?!


SAVOURY MUFFINS WITH OLIVES, TOMATO & AROMATIC HERBS


I’ve been willing to make savoury muffins for months but honestly during summer when it is so hot outside, using the oven is one of the last things you want to do… Now it is real fall , with its chilly and  shorter days it is when we get excited about baking at home. I had a few ideas in mind that I already tasted before but when I received the box from Raw Spice bar (flavour kits to receive monthly with 3 different spice mixtures from the world) I thought about using some of them for my savoury muffins recipe. So the mix of spices include: chipotle smoked salt (you can replace with regular salt with cayenne pepper or smoked paprika) and on the other hand a mix of sundried tomatoes, garlic, Mexican and Californian Chiles, cayenne pepper, black peppercorns, onion, oregano, rosemary and thyme. You can play with the quantities depending on your preferences whether you like it more or less spicy. Finally, I used a vegan cheese but feel free to use the cheese of your choice.
So here’s the recipe for these savoury muffins with olivestomato and aromatic herbs! Bon appétit!😉
