This is my moms on the go recipe. She makes this dish all the time when we are traveling or in need of quick healthy snack. This recipe is quick and easy snack or appetizer. It is as simple as topping bread with mixture of vegetables, cheese and baking it until bread is crisp and cheese is melted. I like to add red chili flakes and crushed green chillies to make it spicy. Adding some onions, bell peppers, mushrooms gives it nice crunch and color. You can add any vegetables on this dish as you wish. Its perfect snack/appetizer dish and quite filling.

Ingredients:

4-5 bread slices (whichever bread you prefer)

1 cup Mozzarella cheese

1 medium capsicum chopped (half red/half green to make it more colorful)

1 medium onion chopped

4-5 mushrooms chopped

2-3 garlic cloves finely chopped

2-3 green chillies finely chopped

2 tbsp butter

2 tsp olive oil

salt per taste

2 tsp black pepper

Method:

In a medium pan, heat 2 tsp olive oil. Add garlic, green chillies, onions and sauté until soft and translucent. Add all your vegetables and seasonings and sauté for 1 minutes while stirring continuously until everything is mixed well together. You don’t want the vegetables to cook all the way. Turn off the heat and set the stuffing on the side to cool. Once the stuffing is cool, add the cheese and mix well.

Pre heat oven at 400 degree Fahrenheit. This time I used sour dough bread slices but I usually prefer whole wheat bread. Apply light butter on all the slices. Now with the help of spoon spread the vegetable cheese mixture on each of the slices. Put all the slices on a oven tray and bake for 5 minutes at 400 degree Fahrenheit. Keep an eye on toast while they are baking. when the cheese melts and turns slightly golden, turn off the oven and place the vegetable chilli cheese toast on a serving plate. Delicious veggie chilli cheese toast is ready! Serve them hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.

P.S. This is quick and easy snack for picnics or party appetizers. I usually make them for mid afternoon snack or Sunday brunch with any kind of soup. You can sprinkle red chilli flakes on top if you like more heat.
