VIDEO RECIPE – Grilled Spinach Corn Sandwich (with and without Cheese) | Healthy Sandwiches for kids

This is an oft-repeated sandwich that we make at home. Especially during the lockdown, it was difficult to keep kids satiated. This sandwich comes very handy as its made with everyday ingredients with a smooth and silky wheatflhour-based white sauce- pretty much all the ingredients that go into a healthy sandwich.

As with other sandwiches, this one too came about for the kids primarily, but surprise surprise, the non-bread eater of the house – the spouse-  also loved it a lot. I make the filling in slightly larger quantities, and the same can be used to make white pasta, with just a few added ingredients. 



I have used whole milk for the white sauce, but if you are vegan , you can use almond / plant based milk. I have also made this sandwich without any cheese as the white sauce itself was super creamy. But if you are a fan of cheese, do add it (and adjust salt accordingly).

    Wow ! That’s one combo I love , spinach & corn – well I make it almost the same way except that I grate in some cheese . Protein hai na yaar – and yes the video is super , very clear and well made !

  2. good one. I make the sauce and it disappears into the pasta and so haven't been able to try it in sandwiches. The next time I make I shall keep aside some for the sandwiches 🙂
