Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil (or oil of choice)
  • 2 cups finely chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup finely grated carrots
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (see notes for options)
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons nondairy milk or water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt (more or less to taste)

  • ½ cup chopped cilantro or parsley leaves
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or spray all 12 cups of a standard muffin tin.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli and carrots, cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes until softened (add 1 or 2 teaspoons of water to skillet, if needed). Let cool slightly.
  3. In a food processor or blender, process chickpeas, tahini, garlic, milk, lemon juice, cumin, salt and cayenne until blended and smooth; scrape into a large bowl. Stir in vegetables, flaxseed meal and cilantro until combined.
  4. Divide mixture among prepared muffin cups, (about a heaping ⅓ cup each), smoothing tops.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Let cool in tin 20 minutes before removing from muffin tin. Serve warm, room temp, or chilled.
Notes
Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or the freezer for up to 3 months. The pucks will keep at room temperature (lunchbox, travel, hiking) for about 2 days.

Tahini: An equal amount of unsweetened nut or seed butter, or 1 tablespoon olive oil, can be used in pace of the tahini.
