Gruyére and grape tomato muffin

This week we have gruyére and grape tomatoes muffin. Savory muffins are not very popular but they are great, I would say perfect side dish for salads and soups and perfect to carry around too .When you bake it the cheese melts, the outside gets a little crunchy and for this reason I like to serve and eat it while still warm because on the next day it will be harder and less moist (but you can always heat it before you eat)
I also made a very simple carrot and potato soup that goes along with these beauties.

Gruyere and grape tomato muffin served with carrot and potato soup

Ingredients for muffin:
2 cups white flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1 egg
1 cup whole milk
2 tbsp sour cream(or plain yogurt)
4 tbsp melted butter
1/4 pound Gruyere cheese (I used one from Switzerland)
15 small grape tomatoes
sesame seed to taste

Ingredients for carrot and potato cream soup:
2 tbsp canola oil ( olive oil or corn oil is fine)
1/2 onion chopped
2 minced garlic cloves
1 large diced carrot
4 small diced potatoes
1 tsp rosemary
2 cups chicken stock
3 cups water

Direction for carrot soup:
Place your pan over medium heat with oil. Saute your onion and garlic until onion gets translucent. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook it over medium heat with the lid partially open until vegetables get soft. Blend everything together (you can use food processor) and pour it back to your pan, add salt and pepper to taste and serve it with olive oil on top.

Thanks for watching my show lovely people !
