Mushrooms cooked in butter, rosemary & lemon

IMG_3911  This is a great one if you can get your child to eat mushrooms. They’re jam packed full of goodness.

In the absence of sunlight or supplements, eating mushrooms is a good way to up your vitamin D levels, and the only vegetarian food source of vitamin D. They are also a good source of B vitamins, which help provide energy by breaking down proteins, fats and carbohydrates, and play a key role in the nervous system.

Simply cook in LOADS of butter and sprinkle a little rosemary on top, saute until soft and delicious.

A good squeeze of lemon is not only a nice flavour addition, it also breaks through the fatty taste which can sometimes be too much on a little palette.

(One thing we’ve noticed is that when we put too much butter or oil in a dish, kids get almost a ‘fatty taste fatigue’ from the taste of fat so we often try to break up the taste with something fresh).
