Is Quorn mince ok for 1 year olds?

See the Bill Granger recipe I linked. It's with a tomato based sauce with just a little bit of soy.

I usually cook tofu in soy sauce which is essentially salt, so not giving it to dd until she's older. Or when she nicks some off my plate at dinner and I cant be bothered to take it off her (second child...)

Any good recipes?

Mine have happily eaten it from 6 months with no issues

Thanks for the ideas. Love the idea of the mousse!

Mine will eat it in an omelette. But then she will eat anything in an omelette! DD really enjoys this Bill Granger tofu spring onion omelette with a soy tomato sauce

She also loves licking the spoon I used to stir the sauce.

Hello,
tofu is brilliant- very healthy for the little ones. But, I also had trouble offering it to my toddler (18mnths) in a stir fry. Unless it was in quite small bits, she would spit it out because the texture was a bit funny. BUT, she is happy to eat loads of it in a chocolate mousse! My recipe is here:

Is tofu ok for toddlers? Have bought some and was going to marinate it and try it with some noodles for DD 19 months.
