My favourite baby foods are those that require little or no special preparation, and I love coming up with new flavour combinations for Zayden to try. This one looked so good, I ended up eating the leftovers for a snack the first time I made it and made extra the second time so that I could have it for my lunch too. Baby can enjoy it as is, but mom (or dad) can easily make it into a more substantial meal or snack by using it as a topping on crackers, toast or grilled meat or stuffing it into a pita or tortilla. It would also be a good alternative to salsa or guacamole if you wanted to serve it with chips.
Avocado, Tomato and Tofu Salad (source: Tonight’s Dinner)
1 avocado, finely diced
1 brick of soft tofu, finely diced
2 roma tomatoes, seeded and finely diced
garlic powder and black pepper, to taste
- Thoroughly wash all the vegetables.
- Dice veggies and tofu–increasing the size of the dice as your baby becomes more competent with solid food.
- Serve atop crackers or dip with chips, if desired, but remember, your baby shouldn’t be eating chips until at least age 3 as they are a choking hazard.
