Pizza Muffins

These are just an amazing, feel good, pick-me-up snack. Packed with vegetables, they can be made and stored in the refrigerator for upto a week. Best eaten hot, do microwave before sinking your teeth into their yummy goodness! All vegetables I use are raw, except for corn, which I boil before adding. Avoid red / white onions as they tend to make the muffins smell stale if left for over a day.

The original recipes call for tahini (Sesame –¬†Til – Paste). However tahini is expensive, difficult to find in most regular stores in India, and¬†packed in large bottles. Since the only use I have of it is for hummus, the entire bottle (minus the 2 tbsp required for hummus) goes waste

So, I have experimented with and used¬†till seed and come up with a pretty decent version of hummus. Here goes… Continue reading
