These days I am on the look out for some healthy low calorie dishes. Today I just got some bambino vermicelli in my pantry, which I bought some time back and the packet was lying as it is untouched. So I thought to prepare something using these and bring out a nice colourful nutritious breakfast. It is high in fibre and low in calories and the colourful vegetables makes it a feast for the eyes.
