Vegan MoFo A Dinner Your Toddler will Love

My little bean loves this easy meal and cleans her plate every time we serve this.

Tofu Sticks
Baked Sweet Potato and Carrot Fries
Baked Green Beans with Garlic

To make the tofu sticks
Freeze your tofu
Cut frozen tofu into sticks then marinate it in your favorite marinade. We marinate the sticks in 
un-chicken stock, brags, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, poultry seasoning, spike and nutritional yeast.

We marinate them for a couple of days. The longer you marinate the sticks for the better.

Then bread them in your favorite breading. We use flour corn meal, nutritional yeast, spike, poultry seasoning, and salt and pepper

Drizzle the baking sheet with olive oil 
Place tofu sticks on the baking sheet and then drizzle the sticks with olive oil. 

Bake at about 380º
Flip them after they have baked for about 10 minutes and cook until just about crispy flipping as necessary.

Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries
  • sweet potatoes, sliced thin using a mandolin
  • olive oil
  • seasoning of your choice
Preheat oven to 400º drizzle cookie sheet with olive oil

Spread the sweet potato strips out onto the baking sheet in a single layer, coat with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and spices, turning them over to evenly coat on all sides with oil and spices.

Bake for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes with spatula. Serve warm.

Garlic Baked Green Beans
Drizzle olive oil in the baking dish
Toss in about 1/8th of a cup of chopped garlic with the green beans and bake.

That looks like a great dinner, I'll definitely be making those fish sticks.

These are more like chicken fingers but if add some old bay and sea kelp they will definitely be more like fish sticks. :)
