Blueberries are nutritional powerhouses and they taste great baked into muffins, so Keith and I developed this recipe for Blueberries & Cream Muffins to share with you. These are made using spelt flour, which is much lower in gluten than regular wheat flour and a great option for those with gluten sensitivity. We also added almond extract, which mingled really well with the other ingredients, but feel free to use your favorite extract. Vanilla, lemon, or orange would also taste great in these light, moist muffins!
I just adore Keith’s tasty garlic cheese! This is an “Eastern Block” classic, the foodstuff of Keith’s Polish and Hungarian ancestors. For the dinner pictured here we served it spread on toasted brown bread with vegan cold cuts and a side of sauteed dandelion greens (dandelion is a fantastic liver and kidney cleanser and tonic).

We brought this to work this week and ate the muffins for breakfast and the chili for lunch. We always try to cook enough on the weekends for breakfast and lunch during the week, which is a real time-saver for us. The hearty and healthy chili recipe is from Quick and Easy Vegan Slow Cooking, page 140. It is made using pinto beans, fresh corn, potatoes, amaranth, and quinoa. The corn muffins were made using our own recipe.
