Are Mushrooms OK on Keto?
Yes! Mushrooms are loaded with plant-based protein, antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients – and – contain no cholesterol, fat, and very few carbs! Mushrooms also contain 2 types of dietary fibers (beta-glucans and chitin) that keep you feeling full, and decrease your appetite.
What Size Mushroom Do I Need For This Recipe?
Keep in mind when you’re mushroom shopping that the mushrooms will experience shrinkage in the oven. Plus, you’re going to be stuffing these, so try to get the largest size you can find!
When rinsing your mushrooms avoid submerging in water-Mushrooms absorb H2O fast – meaning a potential soggy recipe disaster! Some folks skip the sink and use a wet towel to remove dirt and debris.
How To Customize Low Carb Stuffed Mushrooms
One thing I love about this recipe is how easy it is to customize. If you don’t care for smokey cheddar swap in a little sharp!
Want a meatier mushroom? Add in browned sausage!
Don’t have celery or forgot the onion at the store? No worries-these will still be a hit!
Bonus: You can bake these in the oven for 20 minutes OR grill to perfection in less than 10!
How Many Carbs Are In Stuffed Mushrooms?
Serve these at your next holiday party or game day gathering and let me know how fast they disappear! With only 2.5 net carbs per 2 mushroom serving, they won’t last long.
