Sun dried tomato-potato-olives-basil aka Pizza muffins!!

recipe from the Muffin Bible by Penguin books..(It's a fantastic resource!! Love it!! Thank you Dr Carole!!)

3 cups peeled and grated potatoes
1 clove garlic, minced
8 sun-dried tomato, finely chopped
3 tbs olive oil
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 egg yolks
2 egg whites, beaten to a soft snow

1. Rinse and drain potatoes
2. mix all ingredients except egg whites (mix all dry ingredients first; then wet. Secret to making light and fluffy muffins to MINIMISE mixing. Mix til just combined. My muffins just to turn out like very dense rocks cos i like to stir my food...haa..)
3. fold in egg whites
4. spoon into greased muffin pas
5. bake at 200 degress for 20 -25 mins

modifications: we added olives, basil leaves and sweet thai chilli....just cos we had them n tot that they'd taste good together.....made another batch sometime back with spinach and pinenuts which turned out really well too..

Comments: Qin says the muffins taste like pizzas...hmm...i dun really think so...but i like them...they've got a peculiar meaty flavour.. :) Bon appetit!
