This is my contribution to Meeta’s Monthly Mingle, Spring is in the air .
For this Spring event I made three recipes. one is with vegetables and the other two are with fruits.
The Banana muffin and fruit salad is also my contribution to Barbara’s blog event A taste of yellow . It is a Cancer awareness event. To read about this event or to donate for a good cause visit her blog.
The spring pizza is a lovely mini pizza with colorful veggies, topped with cheese.
The muffins are basically made of bananas and grated apples. These are “no egg muffins".
The Fruits are pampered with evaporated milk and sugar and is a great refreshing salad.
Square or round bagel bread
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup of chopped yellow, red, and green capsicum
Tomato sauce or green chutney
Cut open the bagels and top it with cheese spread, evenly. Above that add any kind of tomato ketchup or green chutney (find the recipe in previous post). I mix up both and add. Now top it with all the given veggies. Add shredded cheese and bake it for about 5-10 minutes at 350 degrees (preheated) just until the cheese melts above those veggies. Delicious, crunchy pizza is ready.
1 1/3 cup All purpose flour
½ cup sugar
1tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
3 large mashed bananas
½ cup grated apples
1-2 tbsp oil or butter
1/3 cup buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup chopped walnut
½ cup sweetened coconut
Sift the flour. Blend all the dry ingredients and set aside. Mash the bananas, add oil or unsalted butter. Also add the buttermilk and vanilla extract. Combine this with the dry ingredients. Remember, stir until just mixed. Finally add grated apples, walnuts and sweetened coconut and fold them together.
Pour the mixture in to muffin pans and bake them at 350 degrees (preheated) for 35-40 minutes. They turn in to a beautiful golden brown color. Just insert a clean, dry knife into the muffin to see if it comes out clean. This means it’s done.
The same recipe goes for banana bread. Just that you have to use a bread tray.
I also made some fresh fruit salad with strawberries, green grapes, bananas and apples.To these I added evaporated milk and sugar. Yummy fruit salad is ready.
