For this week, we are super excited to introduce savory muffins with cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, oats, and broccoli recipe! It is one of the best ways to introduce vegetables to families in a stylish yet super nutritious fashion. As with the rest of our preparations, it is yet super easy and fun to make.
You can make it even more engaging by involving family members in as they will equally enjoy to put on their aprons and experience the magic of baking! I asked my toddler to help in and she was more than happy to get her hands on it and of course, eat it afterward.
Savory vegetable muffins can be enjoyed over in picnics, get-togethers, lazy Sundays, or packed into the lunch box!
To get you even more inspired, here are some health benefits of cauliflower, oats, and broccoli – key ingredients of our preparation.
Broccoli and Cauliflower come under the category of cruciferous vegetables known for their anti-cancerous properties. They are loaded with fiber, antioxidants, phytochemicals, sulfur compounds, and enhance the metabolism of the body. They make excellent pregnancy food!! However, a little word of caution for lactating mothers as excess can lead to gas and colic for babies.
Oats, in addition, are counted as a superfood for their ultra-high macro and micronutrient content and ability to keep multiple diseases off the ward. So, if you are getting bored of eating oats with milk and fruits, give this recipe a try and you will never regret it.
