Pot Luck Perfection

VeganMoFo-beetrootWhat would you bring to a pot luck?

Pot luck suppers are more of an American thing, not so common in the UK. However, people do sometimes invite you bring a dish along and when anyone leaves the office I work in, we quite often all chip in and bring something in to share.

I’ve made these savoury muffins a few times and they go down a storm. The recipe is adapted from Appetite for Reduction by the marvellous Isa Moskowitz. The rosemary and parmesan give them a great savoury kick.


  • 1 cup of mashed, cooked sweet potato
  • 2 tablespoons of rapeseed (canola) oil
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tbsp. grated vegan parmesan
  • 2-3 tsp water
  • A few sprigs of fresh rosemary and some finely grated parmesan to garnish


  1. Heat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Place 24 mini muffin cases in a 24-hole muffin tin.
  3. In a bowl, mix the mashed sweet potato with the oil, syrup, vinegar and salt.
  4. Sift in the flour and baking powder then and add the rosemary and parmesan.
  5. Mix it all together until it make a soft dough – add some water if needed but take care not to make it too soggy and don’t overmix it.
  6. Drop a spoonful of dough into each muffin case.
  7. Bake for 15 mins until browned and firm.
  8. Remove them from the oven and stick a sprig of rosemary into a few of them and sprinkle with fine parmesan while they are still hot.
