“From *Vegetarian Supercook* by Rose Elliot ("an accomplished UK-based cookbook author who focuses on vegetarian recipes") comes this unique & tempting muffin recipe. The intro contained a wealth of info: "Not only does their cottage cheese & grd almond base make them a smarter way to start the day, but the combo of tomatoes, cheese & basil baking in a hot oven makes your kitchen smell like a pizzeria. The texture here isn't attempting to emulate traditional flour-based muffins. These are much moister, less bready & more quiche-like." *Enjoy* !”
