Keto Stuffed Mushrooms
These keto stuffed mushrooms are the perfect side to pair with your favourite keto protein. They are so simple to make and we love to pair these with a steak or our sesame chicken tenders.
One of the key things we look for in a keto side is that has as little carbs as possible. These stuffed mushrooms have only 1g of net carbs for each mushroom. We love mushrooms as a side or sauce to add to our protein. These stuffed mushrooms make for the perfect keto side dish.
Mushrooms are one of my favourite “vegetables”, although I am not sure they technically fit into the vegetable category, as they are a fungus. Mushrooms have been consumed as food and for medicine for centuries.
Mushrooms are a common ingredient in many cuisines including Chinese and French. Many European nations have a culture of mushroom picking in the forests.
Mushrooms are a healthy source of;
- Niacin: Can help reduce risk for heart attacks
- Selenium: Helps defend chronic diseases
- Antioxidants: Good for your immune system
- Potassium: Helps maintain blood pressure and reduces risk for kidney stones
- Vitamin B1: Helps nerve, muscle, and heart function
- Vitamin B2: Allows oxygen to be used by the body
- Vitamin D: Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to cancer–eat your mushrooms!
