50g leeks (white part only)
75g broccoli (trimmed weight)
75g cauliflower (trimmed weight)
300ml Aptamil Pepti 1 or Aptamil Pepti 2 (made up using cooled vegetable water)
40g dairy-free soya-free margarine
40g plain flour
50g dairy-free soya-free cheese, finely grated


Allergy information: EF, NF, SF, WCMPF. Offer at the texture your infant can manage.

  1. Slice the leeks finely. Divide the cauliflower and broccoli into small florets. Place into boiling water then simmer until soft. Drain and reserve the vegetable water.
  2. When the vegetable water has cooled use it to make up the formula milk according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. Make the sauce by melting the margarine in a pan. Remove from the heat and stir in the flour to make a paste. Add the formula milk a little at a time, stirring well between each addition. Return to the heat whisking continuously until the sauce thickens, then reduce the heat and simmer for 1 min. Add the grated cheese and stir until melted.
  4. Pour the sauce over the vegetables and serve immediately.

Chef's tip: Ensure you grate the dairy-free, soya-free cheese on the fine side of the grater or it will not melt properly. Alternatively buy a dairy-free soya-free melting cheese. For a really creamy sauce a teaspoon of dairy-free soya-free cream cheese may also be added. Aim to use a calcium enriched variety.
