Serves 6 to 8


  • 1 bunch of baby spinach
  • 200g broccoli
  • 100g pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup sultanas
  • 2 cups self-raising flour

    2. Wash the broccoli, pumpkin, and spinach. Steam or boil them until tender. Drain well and allow to cool.
    3. Blend the cooled vegetables with milk to make a puree.
    4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the vegetable puree, sultanas, oil, eggs, baking powder, salt, cumin powder, cheese, and flour. Mix until well combined.
    5. Spoon the batter into the muffin liners, filling each about 2/3 full.
