Cauliflower Pizza Muffins
- ½ couve-flor média
- 8 colheres (sopa) de queijo cottage ou quark
- 2 ovos
- cogumelos, presunto (a gosto)
- 30g de queijo ralado
- pimenta-do-reino, orégano, alho em pó (a gosto)
Cut the cauliflower head into small pieces – as small as possible. You can cut it using a knife or blend in a blender.
Place the cut cauliflower into a bowl and add eggs and cottage cheese or quark. If using mushrooms, sauté in a bit of olive oil in a pan and then add into the cauliflower mixture. Fold in chopped ham and spices to taste.
Portion the mixture into silicone muffin cups. In case you’re using a muffin pan, don’t forget to grease/spray the pan with oil. Push the dough down as much as possible so the muffins won’t fall apart. If desired, you can sprinkle the top with grated cheese, so that the muffins will be even tastier.
Bake muffins at 230 degrees Celsius (450 °F) for 25 to 30 minutes in a preheated oven. Remove muffins from the cups after letting them cool for about 10 minutes, and serve with or without tomato sauce.
