I have wanted to experiment with cooking tofu for Harry for a while now. The texture and simple taste of tofu makes it a wonderful ‘flavour carrier’ and a great way to experiment and create bite sized goodies for toddlers. Harry has tried tofu off my plate before and wasn’t a huge fan, so I enticed him by using flavours I know he loves – like pure peanut butter. The crispy outer and satay flavour inside made these irresistible for Harry. For me, they needed a sauce, so I made a lovely satay to match. Yum.
