  8. Remove the tots from the oven and serve them with ketchup, vegan ranch dressing or hummus for dipping.

Recipe Notes:


The onion should to be cut small enough so that it’s not too chunky and can be easily mixed into the broccoli mixture.

The cheese can be omitted in order to make this recipe dairy-free.
The breadcrumbs can be swapped for finely crushed gluten-free pretzels, cereal or dried bread in order to make this recipe gluten-free.

Absolutely Fabulous Vegan Breakfast Broccoli Muffin Recipe

Breast Cancer Vegan Broccoli Muffin RecipeVegan broccoli muffins are great with a bowl of soup or a green salad! Crumble one of these healthy and delicious muffins right into a cup of Hearty Barley and Shiitake Soup  (or one of our many cancer fighting soup recipes). Yet these are equally smashing as a savory start to your day.

You can use frozen (thawed) or fresh broccoli, so use what is most convenient for you. Quick breads should be quick, so the main thing is to keep it simple. That said, feel free to use almost any chopped fresh or frozen vegetables in place of the broccoli–think kale, Swiss chard, cauliflower, corn, eggplant, squash–that suits your fancy.

Thrown a handful of vegan cheese in here, too, but it is your call–the muffins are equally yummy without it. If you do opt for cheese, be sure to cut it into cubes instead of shredding. That way you get the bubbly bursting blobs of cheese. By contrast, shredded cheese tends to disappear into the batter without delivering a noticeable, cheesy punch. Always use organic ingredients when possible.

Ingredients:
  • 1-3⁄4 cups flour (many healthy options to all purpose flour)
  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 2-1⁄4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vegan granulated sugar (or healthy sugar substitutes)
  • 1⁄2 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1-1⁄4 cups plain non-dairy milk (almond, rice, hemp)
  • 1⁄4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/4 cups finely chopped broccoli
  • 3⁄4 cup chopped green onions (scallions)
  • 1 cup shredded vegan Cheddar-style cheese alternative (optional)
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper, foil or silicone liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, oil and mustard until well blended. Stir in broccoli, green onions and cheese (if using).
  4. Add the broccoli mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just blended.
  5. Divide batter equally among prepared muffin cups.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then transfer to the rack. Serve warm or let cool.

A healthy diet is only one of several factors that can affect the immune system; exercise and stress management are just as important in improving your overall health and well being.
