  • 1 sandwich with leftover spread
  • Can be frozen
  • How to make

4 carrots
2 large handfuls of spinach
100g frozen peas
2 cooked beetroots
150g cream cheese or soft goats' cheese
4 slices wholemeal bread (pick a good quality bread with minimal added ingredients, or if you have time make our Organix homemade bread recipe)

Step 1

Peel the carrot and slice into discs. Steam for approx. 20 minutes until tender. Add the spinach leaves and peas to the steamer for another 2 minutes (you can boil the vegetables instead if you prefer)

Step 2

Drain the veg and allow to cool

Step 3

Create 3 different coloured spreads. Blend one third of the soft cheese with the carrots for an orange spread, then place into a storage pot. Blend a third with the spinach and peas for a green spread, then finally a third with the cooked beetroot. Place them straight into the fridge to firm up. Use either a high speed blender or stick blender, which ever you prefer

Step 4

Once firm, spread 3 slices of bread, one with each colour spread. Place the slices on top of each other with the spread face up, creating a sandwich, adding the plain slice on top. Carefully cut the sandwich into little squares, triangles or any shape you like, great for your little one to grab hold of

Recipe notes

These spreads can be made in advance and kept in the fridge for a couple of days, or frozen for a month. You can also remove the crusts to see the colours all the way around the edge. Great for parties, lunchboxes and picnics. You can also add fresh herbs to the green spread, such as basil to add an interesting flavour, and some grated parmesan for a more cheesy flavour. Why not experiment with other vegetables, using roasted carrots rather than steamed gives a different flavour to the orange spread.
