Tofu

My DD is 8 months and absolutely loves her food. I have given her lots of different types of meat (chicken, beef, lamb, fish etc...) and she eats yoghurt & cheese so she gets plenty protein. I've heard that tofu is a really good source of protein too and I'd like to give her something non meat based sometimes. I did try her with a little bit when she was first on solids just mashed up with some veg purée and she ate it no problem. I bought a huge block because that's all I could get and cut it up into small portions to put in the freezer for her. I'm a bit stuck for ideas as to what to cook it with now though. It's not something I would cook for myself (don't like the texture of it!)

Any recipe ideas anyone would care to share? smile

You could cut it into strips or cubes and fry it up in a pan with a bit of oil and add some veggies. You could then also add some mild curry powder and coconut milk and make a curry (which can also be pureed).

Jamie Oliver did a nice looking recipe for tofu burgers on his current TV show (forgotten what it's called). They might make good finger food?

I like the idea of the curry, thanks. And the burgers sound interesting too. I'm starting to introduce more finger food now.

I'm pretty useless at coming up with stuff myself without the help of a recipe confused

I suppose you could do it with any kind of sauce in

I'm not very good at using tofu in savoury dishes but we use it in puddings. My kids love it in a mousse- e.g. this chocolate and prune mousse

I give tofu to DS 13mo, he struggles with it as finger food because it breaks apart in his grip, fried or not. Mashed into his food to be spoon fed is fine though, I made a curry a bit like PP mentioned, it had some tomato puree in as well. He ate some but wasn't mad on it.
