  • 1 cup plain flour ( I use gluten free self raising & add 1 table tapioca flour)
  • 1 cup instant polenta (Marco Polo brand is a good texture)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried basil (or fresh if you have it!)
  • 2 medium zucchinis, 320 to 350 grams thermied speed 5.5 or grated.
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, ricotta or mozzarella grated
  • 1 cup rice milk
  • 2 eggs


  • Preheat oven to 175-180°C.
  • Chop zucchini in Thermomix speed 5 (or high speed blender) until grated texture (or grated). Put aside.
  • Add flour, polenta, baking powder, basil and salt & combine reversed speed 3. (or mix with wooden spoon in a bowl)
  • Add cheese, egg & rice milk until just combined – avoid over mixing.
  • Add zucchini & mix reverse speed 3 until just mixed (or mix with wooden spoon)
  • Spoon 1/4 cup sizes evenly into greased 24-hole muffin tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and cooked through.
