Vegan Veggie Stuffed Savoury Buns | Easy tea time snack

Vegan Stuffed buns was an offshoot
of the calzone recipe. While shaping those vegetarian calzones, the husband was
hovering in the kitchen and asked if the same dough can be shaped into buns
too. And thus was born an idea, a clever one at that. By that time, we had
already baked those calzones, so worked with stoneground wholewheat flour. And
the texture, although coarse lends beautifully to these super healthy buns. I
had a bit of these chopped veggies from the morning breakfast, so sautéed them
with some spices and the filling was ready. Its nice to see how one or two
basic doughs transforms to so many baked goodies.

Happpily munched them for tea, and
again for dinner with some broccoli soup and the day was done. Making these
vegan is an option. But you can add butter if need be. The shiny crusty tops
with the soft but chewy interiors with the veggie filling was so good to bite
into. By the looks of it, we may not indulge in too many store bought bakes
