Step 1

Preheat the oven to 405 F (200C). Put the rack in the top third. Use the butter to grease the muffin pan, or cover it with paper liners. Set it aside.

Step 2

Cut the pumpkin into medium pieces, and put them in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and salt. Toss them well and make sure everything is coated. Arrange them on a baking dish or roasting pan into an even layer. Bake for 15-25 minutes, or until entirely cooked through. Set it aside to cool. This step can be done a couple of days in advance, and refrigerate the pumpkin until you are ready to use it for the muffins. Also, Keep the oven heated.

Step 3

Once the roasted pumpkins have cooled, transfer two-thirds of them into a large bowl, mix it with the chopped baby spinach, minced parsley leaves, sunflower seed, two-thirds of Feta Cheese, and mustard. 

Grate the Parmesan cheese and add it to the mixture. Give them a gentle mix and make sure they are fully incorporated. It is better to fold the mixture with a spatula.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until incorporated. Then add in the Low-Fat Milk; once dissolved, stir it in the pumpkin mixture. Stiff in the flour and baking powder onto the pumpkin mixture. 

Top that with a suitable amount of salt and freshly grounded black pepper. You can also use red chili flakes. Fold together just until the batter comes together, be careful not to over mix.

Step 5

Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin pan. Fill each hole 3/4 full—top each of the muffins with the remaining roasted pumpkins and Feta cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the muffins’ tops and sides are golden, and they have set up completely. 

Let cool for almost ten minutes, then transfer the baked muffins onto a cooling rack.

Step 6

Serve these little drops of heaven with a buttery and creamy sauce at the side. They can also be an excellent complement to hot soups. Bon Appetit!

Cooking Notes

If you don’t like the taste of pumpkin, you can replace it with other vegetables such as squash and sweet potatoes.
