I'm trying out a variety of flavors and textures on the Babe. I really don't want him to end up to be a picky eater, like myself (oh the shame). What better way to start off than with my arch nemesis -mushrooms! Dum, Dum, Dummm.......
Mushroom Pasta Sauce
(8 months +)
adapted from Amanda Grant's 'Baby & Toddler Healthy Eating Plan'
You will need:
1 Tbls Olive Oil
3 Scallions (finely chopped)
10 oz. Mushrooms (sliced)
1 Tbls Parsley (finely chopped)
Fresh Ground Pepper
6 Tbls No Salt Vegetable Stock
3 Tbls Cream Cheese
Pasta or Rice (cooked)
Heat the Oil in Large Skillet. Add Scallions and Saute' Until Translucent (about 5 min.)
Add Mushrooms and Fry Until Golden Brown and Begining to Loose Their Liquid. Add Parsley & Pepper and Stir.
Stir in Stock and cook over gentle heat until soft (about 5 min)
Stir in Cream Cheese
Mmmm... smells great!
Transfer to Food processer (blender, hand mixer) and Blend into Desired Consistency (I left mine with a little texture). Freeze in Ice Cube tray. Makes About 12 Cubes.
Well, what do you think little man?
That'll do Babe, that'll do.
