Baked Tofu Bites: You Know You Want Some!

I just made baked tofu bites. Yummm... they're great little snacks, especially for toddlers who like/need bite-sized, healthy, protein-filled snacks. And talk about easy to make!!

Use a block of firm tofu. Drain the water by pressing the tofu between to plates for 10-20 minutes (or you can use a tofu press, which I don't have).  After the water has been drained, wipe/squeeze the excess water off of the tofu with some paper towels. Cut the tofu into little squares and either throw in a marinade sauce (with soy sauce and/or olive oil. You can add other things into the marinade, too, if you'd like: garlic, onion, herbs, salt, pepper). Remember that tofu absorbs whatever flavor it is cooked with, so have fun experimenting, or just stick with the basics. Whatever!

Make sure to grease a pan. Drop in the cubes and then cook for about 30 minutes. Be sure to stir it around a time or two.  Here's a link to a good recipe: Easy Baked Tofu .


  1. I'm going to try this! Just curious - when you serve leftovers to your toddler, would you warm them up or serve cold?


  2. Hey Sarah, I think probably cold, but I imagine it'd be good either way.
    One mistake I made was that I made the chunks a little too small (which made them too hard/chewy from the baking process). They'd probably be best cooked in 1" cubes (which then AFTER cooking could be cut and still remain soft).
