In the last post we looked at why avoiding peanuts might not be the smartest move if you want to avoid nut allergies. That got me thinking about homemade baby food. When my son was little I used to make him homemade baby food all the time, among other recipes I'd make an organic peanut, broccoli, and tofu dish that he loved. NOTE: Before making this for your little one, ask your baby's pediatrician about health concerns with nuts.

Organic broccoli and tofu with peanut sauce for baby: Gather the following...
  • Organic Tofu - soft for newer babies, firmer tofu for older more experienced eaters
  • Broccoli
  • Spoonful of organic creamy peanut butter
  • A little bit of breast milk or apple juice
To make for a new eater - I'd make this for Cedar when he was maybe 7-10 months... Steam broccoli until very soft. Mash soft tofu in a bowl and either mash or puree broccoli into the tofu. Mix organic peanut butter in a small sauce pan with some liquid - apple juice or breast milk – until sauce-like. Pour peanut sauce over tofu mash and serve. For more experienced eaters - I made this version when Cedar was over a year old... Steam broccoli until very soft. Cut firm organic tofu into tiny baby bite size pieces and heat it a little to warm (like 15 seconds in the microwave). Mix organic peanut butter in a small sauce pan with some liquid - apple juice or breast milk – until sauce-like. Toss the broccoli into a bowl the tofu squares. Then drizzle the sauce over it.
