|Two of our staples: spinach and mozzarella|
|Into the oven! Mushroom before baking.|
I allowed the children to come in and top the mushrooms to their liking. More to their loving because they embraced the odd looking veggie with full on dubious faces. Very cute but very dubious. Children love to get their hands messy and it served as a bonding time and teaching opportunity for me. I love having them in the kitchen and we talk all about the science of recipes, temperature, kitchen safety and cleanliness. I take it all in & try to utilize every moment to the advantage of my family. These moments are most important. I even take in a breath with the mess at the end which, go figure...I am amazingly left to clean.
They did take the utensils to the sink, though. Good job, guys!
|Our Cheesy Portabello after cooking|
We had the cheesiest mushrooms and after a little bit more coaxing, they ate them up. Cutting them like pizza slices didn't hurt either. You don't have to top it all with cheese like this and the majority of vegetables we eat are raw. These massive and delicious portabellos were new for all of us so we decided to combine our introduction with old favorites from our fridge.
Kids will eat veggies. Just get them involved and make it messy & fun.
