Avocado, rocket and brie scones (vegan)
Avocado and Hemp Scones at Bite Sized Thoughts and the Green Grass Scones at Laws of the Kitchen. The cheese was a Damona brie that seemed uninspiring when straight from the fridge but was wonderful and melty when warmed.
I am sending the scones to Tandy at Lavendar and Lime for International Scone Week 2017.

An original Green Gourmet Giraffe recipe
1/3 cup milk (I used soy)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
90g avocado flesh (1/2 an avocado)
1 tsp seeded mustard
1 cup self-raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1 tbsp chia seeds
30g (1 handful) rocket, chopped
90g brie, cubed and divided
extra flour for handling dough
Mix milk and vinegar. Set aside to thicken and curdle.
Preheat oven to 220 C and line an oven tray.
Mash avocado with a fork. Stir in milk mixture and mustard. Set aside. Mix dry ingredients in a medium large bowl. Gently stir in rocket and avocado mixture.
Turn out dough onto floured surface and knead a few times using a good amount of flour to help handle it if it is sticky. Pat down and push 2/3 of the cheese into it and knead once or twice, then pat down again. Cut into 9 squares and transfer to prepared oven tray. Press a chunk of brie into each piece.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Wrap in a tea towel until ready to eat. Best eaten warm on day of baking.
NOTES: I used 1 tbsp vinegar with enough milk to make up 1/2 cup but it was really sticky so I reduced it back to 1/3 cup like Kari did. But I think the extra milk probably helped make the scones softer. My scones were vegan with vegan milk and vegan cheese but the scones can be vegan or not depending on diet and available ingredients. I think the scones would work without cheese if you wanted them vegan and could not find any vegan brie - I highly recommend the Damona vegan brie. I baked my muffins for 15 minutes but they were quite brown and my oven is slow so I suggest checking earlier.
