For the Canapes
  • 12 canapesDip foods canapes / monitas
For the White Sauce
For the Filling
  • 1cup chopped vegetables(capsicum, broccoli, bell peppers, corn, baby corn, spinach, mushrooms)
  1. You can use the canapes as is out of the box, but I prefer to crisp them up in oven. Just put the canapes in the oven on Toast mode for about 5 mins.
White Sauce
  1. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a non stick pan. Add 1 tbsp butter and let it melt.
  2. Add the flour in while whisking continuously.
  3. Take the pan off the heat and pour the milk in slowly, still whisking continuously to avoid lumps.
  4. Add the grated cheese and stir it in till it melts. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set the sauce aside in a bowl and let it thicken. You want a thick, creamy mixture rather than a runny sauce, so that it is convenient for a toddler to bite into and also a runny sauce would make the canapes soggy.
Veggie Filling
  1. Heat the remaining olive oil and butter in the pan. Add the vegetables and saute.
  2. Cover the pan and let the vegetables cook on slow flame till they are soft enough for your toddler.
Assembling the Canapes
  1. Fill each canape with the white sauce. Add a generous helping of the sauteed vegetables to each canape.
  2. Serve as is or top with ketchup / oregano / chili flakes / hot sauce as per your and your child’s taste.
