I never thought these Keto Roasted Mushrooms could taste this good. I don’t know why we’ve never roasted them before.
I have always fried them in a pan or in a saucepan with garlic etc.
This Keto Roasted Mushroom recipe makes the mushrooms taste far more superior than any other way of cooking mushrooms.
These Keto Roasted Mushrooms are MEATY!
Even if you’re not a mushroom fan, give these a try. They taste so savoury and have an almost meaty texture and flavour.
They’re so wholesome and are so nutrient dense.
You could use this recipe as a side to nearly any dinner but also as a side for bacon and eggs at breakfast time.
Mushrooms are a great source of nutrition for those who live a keto life.
They are low in calories, sodium, cholesterol and packed with fibre, vitamins and minerals.
They provide a variety of B vitamins including pantothenic acid (B5) which is good for your nervous system and helps to produce healthy hormones the body requires.
Niacin (B3) which is good for your digestive system and helps to maintain healthy skin.
And riboflavin (B2) which is required for healthy red blood cells, all of which ketonians should be consuming to keep their vitamin B levels in check.

Mushrooms also contain beta-glucan which is a soluble dietary fibre known to improve bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol as well as contributing to a healthy heart.
Beta-glucan is also known to regulate blood glucose and helps to decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes.
They are also full of antioxidants which help to fight the body’s free radicals, slowing the aging process, and support the immune system.
They also contain healthy levels of copper and potassium which support red blood cells, as well as bone and nerve health.

NOW TO PINTEREST!
This recipe was actually going to have a buttery garlic sauce drizzled over the top after they finished baking but when they came out, they tasted so good the way they were.
So we decided to just publish them in the simplest form and to then add a separate blog post using a buttery garlic sauce later.
I hope to add the Keto Buttery Garlic Mushrooms blog post very soon.
Anyway, you really need to try this mushroom recipe. It is so delicious.
I reckon we could eat a bowl of this as our main for dinner rather than just a side dish.
