    I haven't, will check those out!

    I had no idea, I'll be careful with it. I was just thinking of when we use the 'mince' in pasta sauce, that sort of thing.

    Lol I forget that other people actually like beans, hopefully DS will too! I only eat them because I 'have' to, I usually try and disguise them as best I can

    Default Vegetarian baby food

    DS is not a vegetarian but we eat veggie meals a few times a week and as a baby I have him loads of veggie meals - I also would stay away from any processed pretend meat type foods because of the salt content - try give him some tempeh and buy some black strap molasses and brush it on his roast veggies or add to soups as it has a very high iron content ,some of his fav meals at that age were:

    Falafels - great finger food for babies
    Chickpea and broadbean veggie patties ( we have these as burger patties now)
    Zucchini slice ( no bacon!) but cooked in mini muffin tins so great finger food
    Lentil soup made thick
    Egg pancake ( 2 eggs mixed with chia seeds and veggies and fried in mini fry pan )
    Rice cakes with almond butter , peanut butter or avocado
    Wholemeal pita bread with hummus or tahini
    Mini pizzas with feta, spinach and mushrooms
    Veggie nuggets - about 5 types of grated veggies with rice or quinoa and roll in quinoa or rice crumbs and shallow fry or oven bake
    Pasta - just mix fresh ricotta with smashed peas and baby spinach through hot pasta
    Homemade baked beans
    Toasted mountain bread wraps with cheese, baby spinach and avocado
    Salad plate with olives, cut up cherry tomatoes, cucumber and capsicum sticks and feta

    As pp said lots of green veggies, quinoa, chia seeds, blackstrap molasses and eggs are great sources of iron

    How do you guys cook your tofu for babies? Firm or silken? We usually have it with lots of soy sauce, ginger and garlic but I assume that's too salty/spicy for him. Just give it plain?

    Default Vegetarian baby food

    Whenever I cooked tofu for DS I used firm and sort of treated it like I do haloumi cheese - cut into slices and marinate in lemon juice, garlic, olive oil and some herbs and pan fry and just cut it into sticks and served with veggies
