Savory Scones With Carrots and Greens


Scones make a delightful start of a morning,quick to bake these light and flaky bread of British origin are apt for breakfast or any meal of the day.My DH(who can sniff out butter in any disguise) prefers these without butter,I'd bake these with Olive oil just for him.But in the following recipe I use butter ,as it was just for me and my boys,we do love butter once in a while and besides nothing can replace butter in these scones for a flaky texture.Vegans could use shortening but be mindful of the trans fat in it.And use Soy milk and tofu instead of milk and butter milk.
The fruity scones are popular treats for breakfast,but this savory version with fresh greens and lightly sweet carrots proved to be an equally lovable delight.

Savory Scones
Preparation time: 2 minutes
Cooking time :12-15 minutes
Serves :3
Ingredients
2 cups Whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder(aluminum free)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup of fresh greens(spinach,broccoli rabe,chard or kale),finely chopped
1/2 cup carrots,finely shred
2 tablespoon of Organic butter,cold and cut in cubes
1 tablespoon flax seed meal (optional)
1/2 cup reduced fat butter milk or silken tofu
3/4 cup reduced fat milk or soy milk
pinch of black pepper or cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon of salt

Method
Preheat oven to 400F.
Combine flour, baking powder,soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.Add the cold butter and using a fork cut in to the flour. Stir in carrots and herbs , coat well in the flour. Make a well in the center and pour in the butter milk and the milk. Gently fold the mixture to combine everything.
Sprinkle some all purpose flour on your work surface and press the dough in to circular shape. Place on the cookie or baking sheet and mark in to 7-8 wedges.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly brown.For a darker and crisp scones,turn the broiler on just for few seconds before getting them out.Cool for a minute or two. Separate along the marking.Serve warm with your favorite beverage green tea,coffee or chai.
