Easy Sandwich Alert!
This Sandwich has Millet cooked in Buffalo sauce(!!), which ca be served as is as a side. You can also use other grains like Quinoa or Amaranth or cracked wheat or barley or Lentils. Buffalo lentils. Yes, that needs to happen.
The sandwich is grilled up with more buffalo sauce(I mean really), some red bell pepper and a creamy thick Ranch sauce. Man this tasted good! Of course, use the Buffalo sauce to taste, it is hot:). Love tangy Heat? Make Buffalo Millet!
I added some Cilantro to the Sammie because if I could, I would add it to everything. You can sub chopped up greens.
The sammie can be easily converted to a Wrap. Warm the wrap, layer all the ingredients. Add some chopped greens. Wrap, cut , serve. Use gf bread or gf tortillas for a gluten-free version. Make the millet and ranch sauce and refrigerate for upto 2 days, and grill up the sammies when needed.
I gave in made a White Sandwich bread the other day. Mainly because there isnt a recipe on the blog for a regular White bread. The recipe will be up soon. Till then you can use any of the Sandwich Breads from here or Somer’s Country White Bread.
I seem to prefer some extra grain or nuts in my breads. Makes the bread more sturdy and filling.
My parents are visiting us in July/August. So there might be a slight slack in blog posts. I might just do ‘what we ate today posts’ with tons of Indian food made by mom. Maybe convince Ma to make some cooking videos with her ;). Loads of veggie and lentil stuffed flat breads(Parathas) for breakfast, here we come!
And(too many ands) I will try to get Dad to eat different grains:). And hopefully meet my carnivore bro after 8 years! and feed him some veggies 😉 He does not know what is going to hit him, definitely not any animal.
