Substitute veggies of your choice.
1/2 cup asparagus cut into 1/2 inch strips
1 tsp olive oil
1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2/ tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (I would use salted butter here for taste.)
1 large egg
3/4 cup skim or 1% milk (I would use whole milk here.)
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup fresh herbs,
minced 3 oz soft, mild goat cheese (I would use more.)
Heat oven to 400F. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners. In a bowl, toss asparagus with olive oil; roast on a baking sheet, 10 minutes. (I would roast for 4 minutes.)
In a second bowl, stir together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and cayenne pepper.
In a third bowl, combine butter, egg, and milk. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk mixture; stir lightly until combined. Stir in asparagus, peas and herbs.
Fill muffin cups halfway with batter. Drop 1 tsp goat cheese into the center of each muffin; cover goat cheese dollops with remaining batter.
Bake muffins until golden and springy to the touch, 18 minutes.
