Tasty Tofu Pasta Sauce

I needed to get DD2 (8months) to try some tofu.  Although we have no history of allergies in the family, I still get really worried when giving her certain foods for the first time.

Anyway, I found this recipe here & it was nice.  She’s still being a bit fussy about lumps, so I ended up pureeing it and she then scoffed it down.  I gave her pasta bows which were a great success – nice & easy for her to hold & stuff in her mouth.

Ingredients

  • 0.5 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 0.5 green pepper, seeded and diced
  • 0.3 pack firm tofu
  • 1 tin tomatoes
  • 0.5 tsp basil
  • 0.5 tsp oregano

to serve

  • pasta
  • parsley

Instructions

  1. drain the tofu on kitchen roll, crumble & drain again
  2. In a saucepan, saute the onion in the oil.
  3. Once softened, add the green pepper and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  4. Put the tofu into the saucepan and cook for 5 mins, stirring occasionally.
  5. Drain any excess liquid, then add the tomato puree and basil.
  6. Cook the pasta, then top with the sauce and parsley.
  7. Chop finely, or puree as required.
