Yes, this is a healthy toast recipe without any bread. Loaded with veggies and a few spices, this can be your go-to breakfast meal or a delicious lunch box recipe.

Trying to reduce bread in my daily diet and incorporating healthy flour and grains, I came up with the new recipe. The other day when Kalyani, challenged us to use noodles differently and not the typical noodles. My thinking cap was on.

Many options crossed, but I used it more healthily and developed this No Bread, Buckwheat Vermicelli toast. I initially tried this 2-3 times, and once I was 100 percent sure of the recipe, posting it.

Toast, Waffle, and Pancake with the same batter

The process is quite simple. Now one can make a toast, waffle, or a pancake from this. I wanted to make toast as it was visually more appealing for lunch boxes and I have too many pancakes already on the blog. 

I have made this in my electric toaster. One can make it on a stovetop toaster too. When cooking on the stovetop toaster, do it on a slow so it gets cooked properly. Even with the electric one it will take a while as the batter has to cook. Do not switch off once the green light turns on for your toaster, as the toast might not have cooked. 

I added all the ingredients together and made a semi-thick batter. The batter is then added to the toaster and cooked. I have topped it with roasted vermicelli to add a nice crunch and for it to look more appealing. Topping is completely optional.

Ingredients used No Bread Buckwheat Vermicelli Toast

Buckwheat flour is one of the main ingredients in this recipe. I simply use different types of flour for this recipe. One can use any millet flour like Ragi (finger millet), Jowar (Sorghum), or Bajra (Pearl millet) too for this. The texture will differ based on the flour, however it would taste good.

The next main ingredient is Vermicelli. It is added for the crunch as well as to add some body to the sandwich. I have used wheat vermicelli but one can replace it with rice vermicelli or gluten-free fine noodles to make this gluten-free Buckwheat vermicelli toast.

The third main ingredient is vegetables. I have used cabbage, amla (Indian Gooseberry), and pepper/capsicum in this toast. I use whatever is available in my fridge. So any combination of veggies can be used. Do not add veggies that have too much water content as in that case, your toast might not cook. Balance it out with veggies with less water content. 

Other ingredients are used to enhance the taste of these bread-free sandwiches. I have added garlic, ginger, green chili, salt and coriander.

As said earlier, I created this recipe to use noodles in different forms. An awesome challenge given by Kalyani. She made this Vermicelli Cutlet and I made this Millet Vermicelli Toast when Priya from The world through my eyes gave me cabbage and ginger as the secret ingredients. I gave her green chili sauce and tamarind chutney and she made Easy Chinese Bhel.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup Buckwheat Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Vermicelli – ¼ cup
  • ¼ cup Cabbage chopped
  • 2 tablespoon Pepper/Capsicum
  • 1 Amla / Gooseberry chopped – Optional.
  • 2 garlic cloves medium size – grated/minced.
  • ¼ inch ginger grated/minced.
  • Salt
  • 2 green chili Finely chopped.
  • ¼ cup Coriander
  • 1-2 Cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil/ Vegetable oil

Preparing the batter

  • In a large bowl add the buckwheat flour, vermicelli, vegetables, garlic, ginger, coriander, green chili, and salt.

  • Mix everything initially with ½ cup water.
    1-2 Cup water
  • If required add more water a tablespoon at a time to get a smooth-dropping consistency batter.
  • Let the batter rest for at least 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, check the batter. The flour might have gone thick as it tends to absorb water.
  • If it has gone thick, add a tablespoon of water to make a smooth-dropping consistency batter.

Preparing the Toast

  • Heat the toaster.
  • Once the toaster is hot, grease with oil or butter.
    1 tablespoon Olive Oil/ Vegetable oil
  • Spread some vermicelli on the toaster plate. (Optional)
  • Add 2-3 tablespoons (or depending on the size of your toaster plate) of batter in each toaster plate and spread it.
  • Spread some vermicelli on top. (Optional)
  • Toast it for 8-10 minutes.
  • If it’s not done, continue cooking for more than 3-4 minutes. Do check in between as the cooking times of all toasters are different.
  • If required, flip and cook on the other side. (Again it depends on your toaster settings)
  • Once done, remove and serve.
