I wanted to make some corn muffins but most of the recipes called for wheat flour so I decided to use garbanzo bean flour instead. The Muffins turned out great except I found the garbanzo bean flour kind of dense.I may adjust the ratio next bake.
1 egg(I use liquid egg whites)
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons of baking powder
2 tablespoons of oil
pinch of salt
1 cup organic blue corn meal
1 cup organic garbanzo bean flour
Mix dry indigredients well, add liquid and mix slightly until dry indigredients turn wet. Spray muffin tins or use paper liners, fill tins 3/4 full and bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until firm to touch.
I made a very cool discovery, the other day as I was preparing a Shepherd’s Pie. I prepared too much mash for the dish so I pondered what to do with the leftover mashed turnips and potatoes. I like to use turnips too as they are lower on the glycemic index than potatoes.
Before the Mash
I had the brilliant idea to freeze the leftover mash in ice-cube trays. I sprayed the trays with olive oil and plopped the mash into the trays. I leveled off the mixture and covered with aluminum foil. While rummaging in the freezer for some vegetables to use as a side dish, I remembered the frozen mash. I pulled the tray out and popped out a few of the frozen cubes to use with as a side for a meal and recovered the tray and returned it to the freezer. I placed the cubes on a plate and zapped it in the microwave, the mash did not lose any flavor or texture from freezing. I am patting myself on the back for this clever little tip. 🙂
