  1. In a food processor or thermomix put in, carrots, onion, squash, garlic, lemon juice and zest. Pulse approximately 4-5 times just enough that all vegetables have been chopped down. rough breadcrumb consistency is what your looking for.

  2. Tip into or bowl (OR if you have a thermomix, add the rest of the ingredients but blend on reverse option as to not break up peas.) Stir in peas, buckwheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, quinoa flakes mint and eggs. Stir until just combined and evenly distribute into greased muffin trays.
