Cooking with the kids in the kitchen is such a wonderful learning opportunity. The sights and smells of new and interesting foods and the textures and tasks of cooking provide children with a rich experience. Then there is the awareness of accomplishment. Kids can help to prepare the food that feeds the family. Kids can learn the steps of cooking a meal from start to finish. This week in our Cooking With Kids A-Z series, we are exploring Mushrooms. We made a vegetable quesadilla while learning along the way.
How can kids learn when cooking?
Vegetable Quesadilla Recipe
With a vegetable quesadilla, children get the opportunity to try new vegetables that might be new to them. The hand-held finished dish is a fun one to eat. Dipping the quesadilla slices into ranch, salsa, or sour cream may encourage your child to try this recipe and new tastes. Have fun experimenting with vegetable combinations!
