These are a great vegetable side dish for the whole family, and a fantastic idea for fussy eaters who get put off by seeing vegetables on their plate. If you're catering solely for adults you can just cut rounds if you're not a fan of star shaped food. These also make a great finger food for infants.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 4 servings


Spinach, onion, cheese and mash

1 and1/2 cup of mashed potato (just mashed, still warm)
2 cubes of frozen spinach thawed (approx 1/4 cup)
4 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup of grated cheese
1/2 small red onion grated

You'll also need some flour for dusting your work surface, and some spray oil for baking


Combine the spinach, onion and garlic together in a bowl.

In a separate bowl combine the grated cheese with the mashed potato until the cheese has melted into the mash.

Combine cheese and potato until smooth

Add the mashed potato and cheese to the vegetables and combine together with the flour.

Add the flour to the mash and vegetable mix

Whilst the mixture is still warm, roll out onto a flour dusted surface to about 2cm deep.

Turn out onto a floured surface and roll out to your desired depth - anywhere from 2cm is ideal

Cut the flattened mix into stars (if you are making ahead you can make the stars and place in the fridge and cook later).

Stars are a great shape to cut out, but you could do circles, animals or whatever shapes you have cutters for

Ready for baking

Put the stars onto a baking tray lined with lightly oiled baking paper and spray with oil then bake for 15 minutes at 180 degrees until turning golden brown, serve immediately.

Freshly baked

Alternatives to spinach include grated carrot or blanched and diced broccoli and also diced capsicum
