Curry Chickpea Muffins Recipe

Day 148.

I loved the Chickpea Bread I made earlier this year and I've started trying to make one "Meal Muffin" a week (mainly because the kids love them). So, when it came time to plan this week's meal muffin, I wanted to do a variation on that bread. These are more like mini bread loaves than muffins. I have high hopes for these tiny meals.

Curry Chickpea Muffins
Makes 12 muffins 
1 cup chickpeas 
1/4 cup veggie stock
1 cups veggie stock or water 
1 tsp. dry yeast 
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. curry powder
1 tsp. salt
2.5 cups unbleached all purpose flour
Mash chickpeas with 1/4 cups veggie stock. Mash not to a puree, but so there are still some large pieces of chickpea remaining, set aside. Mix remaining ingredients and fold in chickpeas (setting aside a few tablespoons for topping if desired). Knead dough into a ball. Oil a bowl, turning dough ball to coat. Let rise for 1 hour. 
Divide dough into 12 pieces and drop into lined muffin cups. Drop a reserved chickpeas on top of muffins for topping. Let rise for 15-20 minutes in tin. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400. 
Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until golden and crisp on top..

The Results
Drool. Seriously. I'm not sure any of the 12 muffins will last long enough for my husband to try them. The kids and I ate six of them within the first 20 minutes they were out of the oven. We love these. The crunchy chickpeas and the curry is so perfect together and I love the chewiness of the bready muffins. An absolute hit. I love them warm with a pat of margarine or butter stuffed into the center.
