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

Allergy information: EF, NF, SF, WCMPF. Offer at the texture your infant can manage.
- 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.
- When the vegetable water has cooled use it to make up the formula milk according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- 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.
- 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.
