    Vegetarian Stromboli

    Whole Wheat Vegetarian Stromboli recipe is a healthy twist to the regular Italian Stromboli recipe. This recipe is also known as Stromboli pizza. The first time I read this word, I had no idea what it would be. The name itself made me think of something complicated and I thought not to experiment. However, the element of curiosity to try something new kept pushing me and finally the baker inside me became courageous. I decided to try it and give it a healthy twist. Do you remember my Gluten free Pizza and Healthy Focaccia bread recipes? Both the recipes are Italian recipes made healthy. Gluten free Pizza had the pizza base of lentils and Focaccia was made using whole wheat.

    What is Stromboli?

    Before I start with the recipe, let me share a few interesting facts about Stromboli with you. It is basically a fancy rolled pizza. The most important part of this recipe was its fresh name. I wanted to know the story behind this name. All questions ends at Google. And when I Googled, I found that this recipe got its name after a famous movie called “Stromboli”.  Interesting? It is. It’s no surprise that I have three friends who have already requested me to bake this Vegetarian Stromboli recipe for them. That’s how quickly this recipe has become popular. Now, let’s talk about the Veggie Cheese Stromboli recipe with a healthy twist.

    For Stuffing, heat 1 tsp oil in a pan. Add sliced mushrooms, spinach and bell pepper. Sprinkle some salt and herbs. Cook for 2 minutes and transfer these sautéed vegetables in to a plate to cool.

    In a bowl, take lukewarm water. Add sugar and yeast to it. Stir it and keep aside until yeast froths.

    Activated Yeast

    In a large mixing bowl, take flour, garlic powder, mixed herbs, curd/yogurt and add activated yeast solution to it. Start kneading the dough by adding water little by little. Don’t add water in one go as different flours has different absorption capacity.
