Tofu Salad from Weelicious

I love cooking with tofu. It's incredibly versatile and is packed with protein, iron, calcium and fatty acids. People all over the world have been eating it for centuries, due in part to its healthful benefits.

Over the past weeks, concerns over tofu in babies' diet have come up time and again amongst my mommy friends and weelicious readers. After researching the subject, I've concluded that like any food for babies, moderation is the key. I give Kenya tofu 4-5 times a week, but only a tablespoon or so. I mix it in different breakfast foods, cut it into bite size pieces for a snack or make this tofu salad.

This recipe is delicious. Creamy and tangy, it’s perfect on a spoon to feed baby or as a spread on a sandwich. When I asked one of my tasters to try it, he exclaimed, "You should just call this recipe "Delicious"! Even those that turn their noses up at the idea of eating tofu will love this delicious recipe.

    I'm so excited to try this salad. I was just wondering, can it can be frozen before or after the yogurt is put in?

      Yes! Freeze after you have completed the recipe for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge. You may need to stir it up because it might separate a bit.

      Okay, lets see, once I tied a rope to a ceiling fan and my small dog chsaed itself in circle for hours on end, if that doesn't work then try to give it a small call toy, like a ball inside of a circular tube, that will keep my dog going as well, maybe these two things will work with your dog as well as it did mine.
