Savoury storm in a teacup

It was lunchtime and there was nothing interesting to eat. I was getting rather hungry and impatient. I could have cooked some pasta or noodles but we’re having noodles for dinner tonight and pasta tomorrow so I didn’t fancy either for lunch today. I thought so hard that I nearly blew a gasket! Then I opened the fridge. Sitting there on the bottom shelf was my middle son’s carob storm in a teacup and it got me thinking……could I concoct a savoury one????

I got to work. My mind was awash with ideas but my body was feeling a little lazy. “Best to start simple” I thought and then I may have something to add to down the track. Afterall, I don’t want to peak too soon.

So this isn’t quite Failsafe as it contains tasty and parmesan cheeses but the equivalent amount of say ricotta or bocconcini will result in a Failsafe version. Next I plan to try it with left over veggies……

2 1/2 tbsp of gluten free self raising flour
2 tbsp of besan (chickpea) flour
1 tbsp of butter
2 tbsp of cheese
1 spring onion finely chopped
1 tsp of chopped chives
4 tbsp of milk
Pinch of salt
Pinch of garlic powder

Place flour, butter, milk, salt and garlic powder into a bowl and mix well to form a smooth batter. Add onions, chives and cheese and stir through. Pour into a lightly greased mug or ramekin then pop in the microwave for about 2 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when it just comes away from the sides. Eat while hot!

    • Oh wow! Fantastic! I’m so pleased it was such a hit in your house. My kids will not stop asking me to make the sweet version and it’s driving me crazy! Argh, what have I started, lol! They want it for breakfast!
