  • I don't see why not, as long as they are cut small enough so they don't choke. They may not like the texture though.

  • all of mine LOVED (and still love) mushrooms- just be watchful for a potential reaction (like ANY new food), and make sure that the pieces are small enough. its all good.

    mine love mushrooms with garlic over pasta-

    sautee sliced mushrooms in olive oil over med/high heat, add garlic, dash of salt and some thyme... toss with pasta & a little parm... mmmm.... tasty.

  • Here is my favorite mushroom recipe: Mushroom Stroganoff, is a great, speedy weeknight dinner, especially if you cook the noodles the night before (I use whole wheat egg noodles or bowties). I also throw in spinach, either fresh or frozen chopped.
    1 lb mushrooms (either the large or baby bellas, button or a mixture), cut in half and sliced
    1/2 onion, diced
    1 - 1 1/2 c sour cream (I use fat free plain Greek yogurt)
    1/2 - 1 Tbsp Hungarian Paprika
    salt & pepper to taste
    olive oil or butter (I use some of each)
    1/8 cup (or so) vegetable broth or dry white wine (optional, not part of the original recipe; I think that it gives it some depth)
    Saute diced onions in olive oil or butter (your preference) until just soft and translucent. Add sliced mushrooms, saute until cooked through. Add broth/wine paprika and incorporate well. Turn down heat and add sour cream. Heat through, add salt & pepper to taste.

  • Add more sour cream if the 1 cup doesn't cover everything well. Serve on top of egg noodles or rice. Once I made this and I didn't have enough yogurt, so I added cream cheese and it was still very good! Mushrooms are a great source of protein as well as many other nutrients.
