Egg Muffins with Vegetables

Egg Muffins with Vegetables

These Egg Muffins with Vegetables have been such a great discovery for us and our 15 month old toddler. The best part of this recipe is that you can cook it with just 2 ingredients: egg and one vegetable, weather it’s carrot, broccoli, zucchini, spinach or tomato. You can also mix it up and combine different vegetables. Our recipe is dairy and gluten-free just containing egg and vegetables.

We love cooking these egg muffins for our toddler Luca as they can be prepared in 15 minutes and while they are baking we can focus on something else. These muffins make a really healthy meal packed full of protein, fibre and vitamins from the veggies. They can be served for breakfast, snack, lunch or dinner as a main or side-dish. Have a look at some great meals we made for Luca with egg muffins.

How to make Egg Muffins with Vegetables

To cook the vegetable muffins, you will need a muffin tray. For this batch, we made our top three: carrot muffins, spinach muffins and broccoli muffins.

  • Carrot muffins, grate the carrot and slightly cook it in the pan before adding it into the muffin tray.
  • Spinach muffins, wilt the spinach in a pan before adding it into the muffin tray.
  • Broccoli muffins, cut the broccoli into small florets and slightly cook it in the pan before adding it into the muffin tray.

When the veggies are ready, add the eggs. We use a ratio of 1 egg per muffin. Add all the eggs into a mixing bowl and beat until the egg whites and the yolks are combined. Pour the egg evenly into the tray so all the muffins have roughly one egg portion.

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF and bake the muffins for 15-20 minutes or until they are fully cooked and slightly golden on the top.

How long do Egg Muffins with Vegetables last for?

These egg muffins with vegetables can last in the fridge around 5 days. To reheat the muffins we use the oven as we don’t have a microwave. I would love to tell you all about how to microwave these muffins, but I’m not the right person I’m afraid! If you make a big batch you can freeze the leftover muffins in a ziplock bag as they are freezer-friendly. It will come in really handy to prepare a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner for your little one.
