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


  • 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


  • Drain tofu and pat dry with a towel.
  • 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 a baking sheet and bake. For babies, 6-12 months bake for 10-12 mintes and for toddlers you can bake for 15-20 minutes(see notes), flipping halfway through baking time. 
  • Let cool and serve.


Age: 6+ months and up.
For 6-12 months: Cut into 2-3 inch strips for 6-12-month-olds. When cooking, take the tofu out of the oven at 10-12 minutes. At this age, you still want the tofu soft. For toddlers, you can leave in a little longer for some extra crunch. 
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 an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. 
Reheat: you can serve cold, or reheat in a skillet over med-low heat until just warm.
