Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Melt butter. Add the mushrooms and sauté
until they become browned and crusty on the edges, 10 to 15 minutes.

Transfer the cooked mushrooms to a food processor and blend until minced. (Can be
chopped by hand)

Steam broccoli for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and place in large mixing bowl.

Add olive oil and mash broccoli lightly with a fork until chunky. Add the minced
mushrooms and grated cheese.

Season with salt and pepper.

Mix well.

Fill each cupcake tin half full with the mushroom-broccoli mixture.

In a bowl, beat the eggs with a splash of water until light and fluffy. Season with Tarragon.

Pour batter into the cupcake tins until about three quarters full.

Bake the cupcakes for approximately 10 minutes. Serve immediately.

Can be stored in refrigerator or can be frozen.

Make-ahead-and-freeze buttermilk waffles

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. kosher salt
6 Tbsp. sugar
6 eggs, beaten
8 Tbsp. butter, melted
4 cups (or 1 quart) buttermilk

Preheat waffle iron. In medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. In another medium bowl, whisk together eggs and melted butter until emulsified. Whisk in buttermilk. Combine wet and dry ingredients, but do not overmix. Let batter rest for 5 minutes. Cook waffles according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

To freeze: Let waffles cool completely and then freeze on a cookie sheet. Once frozen, place in a zip-top plastic bag, squeezing the extra air out before sealing the bag to help prevent freezer burn.
