  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line twelve 1/3-cup (80ml) muffin pan holes with paper cases. Squeeze the spinach to remove as much liquid as possible. Discard the liquid. Place the spinach in a large bowl. Add the flour, spring onion, fetta, dill, mint and lemon rind.
  2. Step 2

    Whisk the egg, butter and buttermilk in a jug. Pour into the flour mixture and gently stir until just combined. Spoon the ricotta over the mixture and gently fold until just marbled through (do not overmix). Spoon evenly among the paper cases. Sprinkle with pine nuts, sunflower seeds and pepitas.
  3. Step 3

    Bake for 25-30 mins or until golden brown and a skewer inserted in the centres comes out clean. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    SERVE WITH lemon wedges, lemon zest and dill sprigs
