Healthy (and Tasty) Snack-Quick Mini Pizza

Hurray, a contribution to my Healthy recipe bank! Thanks to Tina Khanna from Delhi,who also happens to be a nutritionist,my former colleague and a friend. She swears that this recipe is a hot favourite with her husband and daughter.What I liked about the recipe, is the fact that it's a wholesome combination of whole grain(whole wheat bread),proteins(low fat paneer/tofu)and also a good source of fiber(veggies). So here's the recipe:
Quick and Healthy Mini Pizzas(Serves 2):
  • Whole wheat bread: 4 nos.(you could cut it with a bowl/biscuit cutter for a round shape)
  • Low fat paneer(home made from skimmed milk) or Tofu: 100 gms
  • Mixed Vegetables(Capsicum+onions+mushrooms+tomatoes): about 150 gms, finely chopped
  • Oil:1 tsp
  • Salt: to taste
  1. Lightly toast the bread.
  2. To a non-stick pan,pour one teaspoon oil and saute the mixed vegetables and paneer/tofu.
  3. Add salt.
  4. Spread this on the toast and grill in an oven or warm it in a closed pan.
  5. Serve hot.
So,who says pizzas are bad for you-try this healthy version instead!! Any takers?

Hi Sweta,

Thanks for the tempting, healthy recipe.
I dont know if you are aware, but Nirula's, India's quick service restaurant has recently partnered with an American Weight Management Company to launch a range of healthy products. One product is a healthy 'Nutribyte Burger' which is available at all Nirula's outlets.
