Tofu & Broccoli Alfredo (Low Fat)

Tofu & Broccoli Alfredo (Low Fat) - Baby & Toddler Recipe

For lunch today I went with a simple pasta recipe that’s delicious and not too sinful – tofu & broccoli alfredo. The recipe calls for only a little bit of cream and cheese, and for the rest uses low-fat and wholesome ingredients. To make the pasta slightly healthier I also decided to opt for wholegrain pasta spirals, and instead of meat we went with tofu, as L’s been having quite a bit of meat and fish lately. But the tofu can easily be substituted for grilled chicken cubes – whatever your little one prefers!

We made this as a family dish, and it served 2 adults + 1 toddler, with enough leftovers for another toddler meal (freezer meal, yes!)

Recipe’s below, I hope you enjoy it!

Tofu & Broccoli Alfredo (Low Fat)

Print Recipe
Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 300gr pasta
  • 250gr tofu/chicken
  • Seasoning
  • 250gr broccoli
  • 300ml low-fat milk
  • 20ml cream
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1tsp vegetable stock
  • 75gr low-fat cream cheese
  • 30gr parmesan cheese

Instructions

1

In one pot, boil the pasta until tender (don't forget a little salt + olive oil). In the last 3 minutes of cooking, you can add the broccoli so that it can steam along.

2

Cut the tofu into small cubes. Sprinkle them with seasoning (we used Aromat), and cook them on a grill pan for about 7-10 minutes, flipping them occasionally so they're cooked on all sides.

3

For the alfredo sauce - heat the milk and cream in a pan.

4

Add the flour and vegetable stock, and stir on low heat until the sauce thickens. Add the cream cheese and parmesan cheese and remove from heat.

5

In a large bowl or pot, mix the pasta, broccoli, tofu and alfredo sauce.

6

Let it cool, sprinkle with some cheese, and enjoy!

Notes

This version is quite low in salt as it's friendly for toddlers and babies as of 1 year old. For an adult version, feel free to add a little more stock, cheese and salt for extra flavor.
