Cheese and Vegetable Puffs - Extra Veg June 2014

I am hosting Extra Veg again this month which is a blogging challenge created by myself and Helen from Fuss Free Flavours as a way to encourage us all to incorporate more vegetables into our meals.  Many thanks to Shaheen for hosting last month, visit her blog to see the round-up.

I made these delicious morsels to fill hungry tums during Half Term.  They made a tasty lunch accompanied by a green salad topped with herbed natural yoghurt, tomatoes and cucumber slices.  Prefect for cooking with kids, each can grate a vegetable or the cheese and take turns mixing and dolloping the mixture on trays before baking.



Cheese and Vegetable Puffs

125ml milk 
1 free range egg
1 courgette, grated
1 carrot, grated
2 spring onions, finely chopped or use or 2 Tblsp finely chopped fresh chives
1 pepper, finely chopped (any colour will do)
150g cheddar cheese, grated
150g self raising flour

Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and egg. Add the courgette, carrot, spring onions/chives pepper and cheese.

Sift over the flour. Mix well until a thick mixture forms.  Spoon out portions onto the prepared oven trays.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

These Cheese and Vegetable Puffs keep well for a couple of days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge.  They also freeze well.
