Vegan Vegetable Muffins with Pesto

Tofu, Spinach, Broccoli, Carrot and Dried Tomatoes Muffins: Vegan, Gluten-Free

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 25-3o minutes

These savory muffins are 100% vegan, easy to make, completely delicious and healthy! They are full of protein, iron, vitamins and flavor. This recipe was inspired by the quiche recipe of a Brazilian cook who I follow on Instagram (@veganize-se), but I changed some of the ingredients and the recipe itself.

-1 teaspoon turmeric powder

-1 teaspoon cumin powder

-2 tbsp olive oil

-1 teaspoon garlic powder
