Left-over Veggie Toasties

Quick Veggie Toasties - A healthy toddler meal

Perfect for parties and picnics, or just a quick lunch or dinner. 

I’ve been making these since uni. It’s a quick and cheap meal everyone likes. And if you put lots of veg in, it’s healthy too! Just chop everything up, mix and spread it on a slice of toast. Bake. Done.

Portions: 2 adults + 2 children
Cooking time: 25 minutes

What's in it: A good combination of fibre, important minerals and vitamins.

  • 6-8 slices of bread or wholemeal toast
  • 2-3 tablespoons of cream fresh or yoghurt
  • A big handful of grated cheese (any cheese leftovers will do)
  • Any herbs you may have left (parsley, basil, thyme, chives)
  • Vegetables cut into very small cubes (e.g. mushrooms, peppers, sweet corn, spring onions, tomatoes, courgettes, olives, capers)
  • Optional: 4 slices of ham, chopped or tuna

  1. Quickly toast bread for a few minutes
  2. Mix all other ingredients together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper
  3. Spread mixture onto bread
  4. Bake under grill with medium heat until cheese is golden brown.

Can be enjoyed hot or cold. 


About this blog
This blog is about family cooking. It's important to get together for family meals. Here I'm posting healthy family recipes that kids and adults will love and make cooking for the family more fun. All my family recipes are well balanced and healthy family recipes but they can be tweaked for fussy eaters or spiced up for a more sophisticated adult palate. In addition to the healthy family recipes, I'm publishing some of my knitting and crochet patterns for toddler toys and accessories.
