Toddler Tofu Bites
photo by Bay Laurel
- Ready In:
- Mix together the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl.
- Place the tofu cubes in a large bowl and pour the honey and oil mix over the top.
- Use your finger to gently coat the tofu as a spoon will break the tofu up.
- Place the tofu bites on a baking tray and spoon over any leftover mixture.
- Bake at 350 deg F for approximately 15 minutes or until the tofu is golden.
This was a great recipe but the baking time wound up being twice the time for me to get to a golden brown & I had to turn up my oven to 375. The next time I make it I may increase the honey amount by half. Because I was pressed for time I ended up taking a serving out & browning it in a frying pan & it tasted exactly the same as the ones that finished in the oven. Baby wasn't thrilled about it, but mom loved it!!!
i fixed these tonight for myself and my 2 year old (who is very very picky and will NOT eat meat) and she loved him. After I made my mother try one (she's never had tofu) she told me they needed cinnamon and sugar so i dusted some on (pre-mixed) and that was delicious. i put them in the shape of a smiley face and she thinks they're marshmallows.
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I'm an ex-pat NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving. I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family and somehow I got roped in to become a Forum Host here at Zaar. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=43 and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start. Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years! I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I have started gardening although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
