Sauteed Diced Tofu

A simple tofu dish that my pre-teen son Colin has liked is sauteed diced tofu with a little hot sauce.  He eats it warm by itself as a snack.

Approximate ingredients:

tub of tofu, firm or extra firm
1 tblsp oil or butter
1 tsp hot sauce like Texas Pete (something with a little tang)
salt to taste or Bragg's Amino
1 tsp Brewer's yeast (optional)

Drain the tofu and press as much moisture out as you can.  Dice the tofu and place in a heated saucepan on medium.  I like to saute the tofu a little without grease to let the moisture evaporate. Add oil or butter to stir-fry the tofu until golden.  Add salt and the hot sauce.  Cook a little more until the hot sauce is absorbed.

Brewer's yeast can be sprinkled on top for added nutrition.  Reduce salt accordingly. This tofu preparation can also be used in salads or other meals.

Recipe: Baby "Rice & Beans"

To make simple "rice &beans" for my almost 7-month-old, I mix cooked and pureed beans with baby cereal. The liquid to get the consistency you want can be breast-milk or formula. This gives my baby grains and protein. I add a little flax meal for more nutrition.  It should also help her if she is constipated.  To complete the meal, I feed her some pureed vegetable and pureed fruit for "dessert."
