Are Mushrooms Good On Keto?

Not only are they delicious, high in fiber, and a source of protein, mushrooms are also incredibly low in calories and carbohydrates.

If you’re struggling to find a healthy and yummy addition to your daily keto meal rotation, mushrooms are a perfect choice.

How Many Carbs Are In Mushrooms?

Mushrooms are low in carbs, but just HOW LOW are they in carbs? If you’re familiar with a keto lifestyle, you’re probably aware that tracking macros can be essential to your success, especially if you’ve hit a weight loss plateau.

Mushrooms average 3.3g of total carbs per serving. If you choose to track net carbs instead of total carbs, mushrooms average 2.3g of net carbs per serving.

What Are The Best Mushrooms To Air Fry?

As a mushroom lover, I will tell you that I try not to play favorites with flavor. Each type of mushroom adds something different and delicious to a dish.

For air frying, however, I prefer Baby Bella mushrooms or button mushrooms. They hold up to the higher temperatures without drying out and they’re one of the more mild-flavored mushrooms.

If you’re cooking for picky eaters or just want this to be a universal pairing for your main course, they are the best choice for mushrooms to air fry.

Ingredients You’ll Need

With less than five ingredients, you can have a tasty low carb side dish. Here’s what you’ll need to have in your kitchen before you get started:

  • Baby Bella Mushrooms
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic

How To Cook Mushrooms In Your Air Fryer

Who doesn’t love a super simple side dish that is perfect for a busy weeknight and can be made in under 30 minutes?

These air fryer mushrooms fit that bill perfectly. Here’s how to make them:

  1. Thoroughly wash and dry your mushrooms
  2. Cut mushrooms in half vertically
  3. In a mixing bowl, toss the halved mushrooms in olive oil, salt, pepper, and minced garlic
  4. Place seasoned mushrooms into your air fryer basket
  5. Cook at 375F for 12 minutes, shaking your air fryer basket halfway through to prevent sticking and uneven cooking.

Can You Make This Keto Mushrooms Recipe In The Oven?

If you’re still getting up the nerve to try out your new air fryer, or simply haven’t picked up one of your own yet, you can still make this easy mushroom recipe in your oven. Here’s how:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400F
  2. Wash and dry mushrooms
  3. Cut them in half or in quarters
  4. In a mixing bowl, toss the halved mushrooms in olive oil, salt, pepper, and minced garlic
  5. Place the seasoned mushrooms on a baking sheet
  6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes
  7. Carefully remove any moisture that may have accumulated in the bottom of your baking sheet
  8. Gently shake mushrooms in the baking sheet and return to the oven
  9. Bake for an additional 20 minutes

Tips And Tricks

  • Change it up. Feel free to swap out the Baby Bella mushrooms with your favorite type of mushroom or whatever you happen to have in your fridge.
  • Marinate. After you have washed and dried your mushrooms, toss in teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, or even Worcestershire sauce and marinate for 15 minutes for an extra punch of flavor.
  • Make them consistent. However you choose to cut (or not cut) your mushrooms before tossing them in your air fryer, make sure they are uniform in size. This will help them cook evenly.

I absolutely adore mushrooms (especially when they’re made in the air fryer) because of how versatile they are and how well they round out a meal.
