Veggie Filled Multi Grain Rolls/Buns

Photobucket

Know what you Eat - Barley is an excellent source of fiber and a good source of Niacin, a Vitamin-B that provides numerous protection against cardiovascular risk factors. Millet is a very good source of Magnesium and try to include this in your daily intake as magnesium is the key factor for a healthy heart and diets rich in magnesium help in reducing migraine attacks and childhood asthma. Oats are an excellent source of iron, dietary fiber and thiamin. They also contain antioxidants that are believed to protect the circulatory system from diseases such as arteriosclerosis, which affects the arterial blood vessel. Whole wheat is rich in dietary fiber and is a good source of iron.

Instead of having your bread varieties from single grain, go for multigrain to get all the nutrition and health benefits. Try this Veggie Filled Bun for a breakfast with a smoothie, snack or with Soups & Salads for Lunch or Dinner.

Thanks all for your comments, Lataji the crust was little harder but not too hard. If you add multigrain flours, you can't expect the same texture as All purpose flour, however adding cooked oatmeal to all these flours soften them a little. Will post the recipe soon with the cooked oatmeal multigrain bun.
