Grilled Sandwich with Buffalo Millet, Red Bell Pepper, Creamy Ranch. Vegan Recipe

Grilled Sandwich with Buffalo Millet, Red Bell Pepper, Creamy Ranch

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.

    Woah, buffalo grains kind of blows my mind. It’s so simple, so obvious, and yet the concept never occurred to me. This is beyond perfect since I got a ton of millet in the VVC swag bag and no idea what to do with it. Swap out the millet and problem solved!

    Richa, how do you do it? You take something as simple as a sandwich and make it a mouthwatering thing of beauty! This looks so freaking good! I envy having your mom come to visit and making you endless Indian meals. Would she mind stopping by my place too? I’ll do the dishes! :)

    Millet as a sandwich filling? Richa, you little genius, you. I will turn to this recipe when I look at my seemingly empty cupboards, full of grains, and exclaim, “What are we going to eat?” And then the little Sriracha lightbulb will go off (it’s spicy) and I’ll be ALL OVER THIS.

    I had a hard time finding vegan ranch dressing mix. All the ones I found had buttermilk or some other milk product in it. A bunch also had MSG. I settled on an organic one but it still had milk product in it but my husband and I aren’t strict vegans. We are strict nom nomers, though, so I’m super excited about making this for dinner tonight! Thanks for the recipe!

    This was so tasty and ingenious! I would have never thought to use millet on a sandwich. I didn’t have any cashews to make the ranch, but I did have some vegan caesar dressing I made a few days ago. It was great on there!


  1. […] 7. Adding red peppers to meals is an easy way to make sure you have a healthy dose of vitamin C in your diet—and to help combat wrinkles—as one cup of red peppers contains almost twice the optimal dose of vitamin C. Try adding red peppers to salads, pastas and sandwiches, like Vegan Richa’s Grilled Sandwich with Buffalo Millet, Red Bell Pepper and Creamy Ranch. […]
