Some meals....

I lost my posting motivation half way through the week, (could you tell?) and then our Saturday is always crazy with 4 dance classes (2 each) so I'm just getting to this now.
First up - a plain bowl of Soba Noodles, steamed Kale and Vegan with a Vengeance Peanut Sauce. A simple lunch but so very very good!
Then we have a dinner from one night during the week. Linguine with a homemade pasta sauce, seitan sausage slices (not sure if you can actually see those) topped with Rocket (arugula) and served with a Rocket and Pinenut Muffin (see I'm still making them!)

Here's the muffin recipe -

Rocket and Pinenut Muffins
Makes 12

2¼ C Spelt Flour
2½ t Baking powder
1 t Salt
½ t Baking Soda
¼ t Black Pepper
¼ t Paprika
2 C finely sliced Rocket (about 3 cups loosely packed)
1 C toasted Pinenuts
1¾ C Soymilk
2 T Lemon Juice
½ t Lemon Zest
¼ C Oil

Preheat oven to 375F and prepare tins.
In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and soda, salt, pepper and paprika.
Add in the sliced rocket and the toasted pinenuts, use your finger to separate and toss to coat in the flour.
Mix the remaining ingredients together in a small bowl, add to the dry ingredients and mix to just combine.
Spoon mix into tins and bake for 18 – 22 minutes until tests done. Cool in tins for 5 minutes and then on a cooling rack.
These are lovely muffins - and even H who is not a big fan of savoury muffins enjoyed them alongside his pasta.

Glad that that was all the problem was.

Those muffins look great with little flecks of arugula in them. I've never had a savory muffin as a main grain, so this seems like a nice change of pace :)

Oooh oooh these sound GORGEOUS!
Pine nuts and Rocket are two of my favourite things. It never ceases to amaze where you get your inspiration from.
