These crispy bite-sized pieces of tofu are a fun and tasty way for baby to get protein in their diet.

Ingredients 

  • 1 block extra-firm tofu organic recommended
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon mild chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Instructions 

  • To get the tofu crispy, you have to drain any excess water from it. Slice the block of tofu horizontally into 2 or 3 even slabs and place tofu slabs on top of a stack of paper towels, with paper towels between each layer and on top of the top slab of tofu. Place a weight on top of the stack of tofu (books, cast iron skillet, cans, etc) and let the tofu drain for 15-30 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, heat oven to 400 degree F and spray a baking sheet.
  • Cut the tofu into cubes, strips or triangles and place into a medium bowl. 
  • Drizzle with olive oil and gently toss to coat. Then sprinkle with the arrowroot powder and the remaining spices and gently toss to coat. 
  • Place tofu onto baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through baking time. 

Notes

Age: 6+ months and up. Cut into smaller chunks or 2-3 inch strips for 6-12 month olds. 
Serving Suggestion – these bite-size tofu nuggets are great served warm along with your child’s favorite veggie or fruit for a tasty protein packed finger food snack or meal. 
Storage: store in air-tight container in fridge for up to 1 week. 
Reheat: you can serve cold, or reheat in a skillet over med-low heat until just warm.
