A scrumptious snack of whole wheat tartlets packed with assorted veggies. The stuffing is held together by a unique white sauce that is thickened with whole wheat flour and low-cal milk. Creamy and luscious, these Whole Wheat Vegetable Tartlets are sure to win everybody’s hearts. Although low-fat milk and butter are used to make these tartlets, which are also rich in fibre thanks to the horde of veggies used, it is still better to restrict the portion size to two tartlets at a time. Serve this exciting snack fresh off the oven, to enjoy the best texture and flavour.

Tried this recipe with white bread and it was really delicious. 2 per head was more than enough. If you cut the bread edges of the side of the muffin tray, the filling was enough. If you let the corners jut out, the tart resembled like a bowl with 3/4 pointed edges. The pointed edges turned out really crisp and tasty. However, the filling will then depend on your bread slice size.

Whole wheat tartlets, made it so healthy, but yet so tasty, as if there is cheese and cream added. The bread is nice and crunchy. I served this as starter to my guest. They just loved it. No one could make out, there was no cheese.
