delicious bookmarking account, I have painted the back door frame and planted some seedlings in my pots. I have even made a stew for tomorrow's dinner. I just didn't have time to make another batch of muffins with tofu feta.
But I Could Never Go Vegan, cookbook. I made some tofu feta. It was ok but I wasn't keen on the texture of the uncooked tofu. (I preferred the almond feta I posted about yesterday.)
I had a yen for savoury muffins. So I decided to search for muffin recipes using tofu feta. If you ask Google, it seems they are pretty thin on the ground. Finally I decided to adapt a vegan muffin recipe using sun-dried tomatoes and olives.
I am sending these muffins to Kimmy and Mary Ellen for Healthy Vegan Fridays.

Vegan feta, olive and sun dried tomato muffins
Adapted from Sandra Vungi Vegan
Makes 12 muffins
1 cup white plain flour
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp wholemeal flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cold water
1/2 cup tofu feta
1/3 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, finely sliced
3 heaped tbsp chopped green olives
2 heaped tbsp chopped sun-dried tomatoes
2 tbsp pesto
12 green pitted olives
Grease a 12 hole muffin pan and preheat oven to 200 C.
Make the add-ins. Cook onion in oil until starting to crisp up around the edges. This can be done while chopping tomatoes and olives. Once the onion is cooked, turn off the heat and stir in the tomatoes, olives tofu and pesto. Set aside to cool while making the muffin batter.
To make the muffin batter, mix together the dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in another. Pour wet into dry and mix gently until combined. Stir in add-ins.
Spoon evenly into the 12 muffin holes. Push an olive into the middle of each muffin so it is still visible at the top. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Rest 5 minutes and then turn onto a wire rack to cool. Eat warm or room temperature. Keeps for a day or two in an airtight container.
*NOTES: My tofu feta was a crumbly mixture in a marinade so I squeezed out as much liquid as possible. It was quite like this tofu feta recipe. I used oil-free semi dried tomatoes. I used green olives marinated in lemon and garlic oil for in the muffins. However they had stones in them so I used pitted olives stuffed with pimentos on the top. If you want vegan muffins, make sure you use a vegan pesto. I used this pesto recipe.
