  2. Chop the vegetables. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, then put the chopped vegetables in it. Stir it. Turn down the heat and cook it for at least 15 minutes. Stir it meanwhile. Near the end of the time add 1 spoon of fresh water and stir it with the vegetables.
  3. Put the flour, the baking power, the salt and the pepper in a bowl and mix them.
  4. Put the fresh cheese, the milk, the egg and the olive oil in another bowl and blend all the liquid ingredients together.

  6. Once they´re baked turn the oven off and open the oven´s door a little to let the muffins cool down. Wait 10 minutes and take the muffins out the oven
