Home-Made Baby Food Series: Microwave-Baked Potatoes with Tasty Tofu

I have already discussed in this blog my version of the basics of home-made baby food, now it's time for me to share with you guys the recipes I used to make baby food for my little one. 

I got the original recipe from Homemade Babyfood Recipes. I just made a little tinkering and modified it a bit. I made this for Trev when he was 11 months old but based on the website I mentioned, you can give this to your baby as early as 10 months old. 

Here's my modified recipe:

2 medium potatoes
1/2 cup silken tofu (See picture below for the brand I used)
2 tbsp milk (I used breastmilk)
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated
Nutmeg (Optional)

Note: We don't have a conventional or convection oven at home. So, I used our microwave oven to bake the potatoes. There are a lot of instructions on the web as to how you can bake potatoes using your microwave oven, but I found a good one here. You can google more instructions if this method doesn't work for you. :-)

  1. Wash, scrub and prick the potatoes then bake until tender. 
  2. Beat tofu until creamy.
  3. Halve the baked potatoes and scoop out the pulp.
  4. Add to the tofu then stir in with milk. 
  5. Beat well then add most of the cheddar cheese. 
  6. Return the potato mixture to the skins then top with the remaining cheese.
  7. Return to the microwave oven and bake just until the cheese melts. 
  8. Dust with a little nutmeg to taste. 

My version of Baked Potato with Tasty Tofu. Delish! :-)

Bought this from Healthy Options, SM North Edsa branch. I'm sorry I forgot how much this was, but I think it's more or less Ph200.

My baby loved it as much as I did! Hihi! Yeah, actually you can also make this for yourself or your husband, or your entire family! Just substitute the milk with non-fat or evaporated creamer, add seasoning like salt and pepper, granulated garlic or whatever that you want for your liking. It's a great and healthy snack for everyone! :-)
