Broccoli, Spinach, Smoked Salmon and Ricotta Muffins

brocolli, spinach and smoked salmon muffins

Apologies for the lack of posts recently, what can I say life with 3 young kids just doesn’t slow down for me to catch up on much!

I have been cooking away for the family and have created lots of great new recipes that Im desperate to share with you all. We have been on a total health kick lately and these muffins are one of my fav easy to make snacks at the moment or breakfast on the run!

They’re full of goodness to get you going for the day or when you need a little snack to have in the fridge. The twins absolutely love them too so have been getting organised and making a batch at the start of every week lately.

What you’ll need (makes 10 muffins)

1 head of broccoli
1 large handful of baby spinach
1 spring of dill (or more if desired)
100grams smoked salmon
8 eggs
Salt and Pepper
1/3 cup ricotta cheese
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp capers
1/4 red onion finely diced

How to
