‘Savory foods’ seem to be catching on as a trend in Tokyo. Tokyo is a fast moving trendy city, where food is also affected by it’s trend. So…my attempt on a ‘savory muffin’ which can be replaced as a breakfast grab or even a short lunch break. 朝食に一口食べながら仕事に出かけて行く人。 昼食は会議の立て込んでいてちゃんと食べれない人。 欧米ではよくsavory foods (セイバリーフォード）と言って、ピザやマフィンやパンで食事の代用になるものがあります。日本でいう、、カツサンドとかお惣菜パンみたいなものかな？ マフィンを甘くなく人参やごぼうを使ってマフィンに仕立ててみました。意外に美味しいです〜。 Savory Carrot/Gobo Muffin Recipe <Toppings and Fillings> Shredded Carrots + sprinkle olive oil Shredded Gobo Root (steamed for about 15 minutes, sprinkle olive oil and salt) Topping – shredded melting cheese <Muffin Mixture> 2 egg 1/2 cup buttermilk (milk with lemon juice) 2 tbsp sour cream 40g melted butter 3 tbsp flaxseed oil 250g Cake Flour 100g Parmesan Cheese 1+1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1+1/2 teaspoon salt Freshly ground black pepper 20-30g Diced Green Leaks 100g Green Peas Preheat to 180C/350°.
