Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen green peas, thawed
  • 2 cups (packed) fresh spinach
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons packed fresh mint leaves
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or coconut oil or avocado oil)
  • 11/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/3 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or spray all 12 cups of a standard muffin tin.
  2. In a food processor, process the peas, spinach, cilantro, mint, water, olive oil, cumin, and salt until well-blended (mixture will not be completely smooth). Add the chickpea flour and baking powder; process until combined, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Divide mixture evenly between prepared cups, flattening and smoothing the tops.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 24 to 27 minutes or until golden brown at edges and tops feel dry to the touch. Transfer tin to a cooling rack. Cool at least 10 minutes before removing from tin. Serve warm, cooled or chilled.
