20 Minutes Veggie Bread Cups

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Friday, May 16, 2008 | 10:03 AM

It was from my sister's friend Sandhya that I first came to know of using the bread in the form of cups. It can be made both vegetarian and non-vegetarian, could be served as an appetizer, with soup as a sandwich, a quick snack for the kids in the evening, can convert it into desert, use as a salad bowl and the rest is for all of you to explore and make it into something more exotic. Its crunchy, healthy and a very creative recipe.My entry to Funnfud's MM:Appetizer's & Hors'Doeuvres for the month of June and to Anupama's Fun- n- More blog's " The Sandwich Festival 2008" event for the month of May.


Muffin baking pan

Cutting board


Rolling pin


Mixing spoon

Measuring Spoon



Onions - 1

Garlic - 2 cloves

Ginger - 1 inch

French cut Beans - 1/2 cup

Peas - 1/2 cup

Carrot chopped - 3/4 cup

Cilantro - 2 Tbsps

Green Chillis - 2

Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp

Salt to taste

Cheese grated - 3/4 cup

Bread - 8 slices

Some oil spray Like Pam

Oil - 1tsp


1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Cut the edges of the multi grain bread or any bread of your choice. Place it on the cutting board and cut off the edges then with a rolling pin roll over the bread so as to flatten it a little.

3. Spray the muffin pan and place each of these slices in the pan so as to form a cup. Either spray with any oil spray or brush the bread on the inside with some butter or oil.Place it in the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. Note: This step can be made the previous day and stored.

4. While the bread is baking, heat the wok and add some oil add garlic, onions, split green chillis.When that is cooked add the remaining veggies, turmeric and cook them enough so that they still stay crunchy.Add salt and then cilantro to garnish. Mix a little amount of cheese into these veggies.

5. Take the above mixture and put it inside the bread cups. Add as much of cheese as you like on the top and broil it for 2 minutes and serve it hot with any chutney or sauce.

Note: This sandwich is wonderful to make for kids who are picky about eating veggies. Just take whatever vegetable that you have made for the day and convert it into something very appealing to them. It worked with my daughter.
