These little gluten free treats started life as Ainsley Harriot's Spinach, cheddar and parmesan muffins, which sounded so delicious, but just made me mad that I couldn’t try them. So I decided to recreate them...I chose tender stem or purple sprouting broccoli for this recipe simply because it is so tender there is no need to blanche first. You could use ordinary broccoli just chop the florets finely and perhaps steam in the microwave for one minute before adding to the mixture.
If you don't mind paying the prices for Boursin the by all means use it, however, I prefer to make my own and save the pennies,,,(must be the Scot in me!!)I use LifeIsGood's recipe #248495. I've found that even non coeliacs love these and they are great, not only for lunch with a light salad but also for picnics and lunch boxes
