Henry is crazy about mushrooms. Crimini and button mushrooms are the perfect size for him whether whole or sliced. The stem is a convenient handle and their soft texture is easy to chew.
Mushrooms are a high-fiber, low-calorie food. They also provide protein and are loaded with vitamins and minerals. Mushrooms can help lower cholesterol, prevent cancer, and boost the immune system.
I am so glad Henry adores mushrooms since they are one of my favorite foods. They make a frequent appearance at our dinner table. We eat them grilled, sauteed, simmered in sauce, or as part of a stir fry. I can’t wait for Henry to try chanterelle mushrooms when they are in season later this fall.
