For this recipe I've used portobello mushrooms – they have so much flavor! But if you prefer a different kind of mushroom then this recipe would work equally well!

An average portobello mushroom (84g) contains 2.2g net carbs – making it perfectly acceptable on a low carb diet. Check out my guide to low carb vegetables for all the best options!

 

How to Make Low Carb Mushrooms with a Sweet and Spicy Sauce

Prepare the mushrooms by cutting them into slices. If you're using smaller mushrooms you may prefer to cut them into quarters instead.

Heat some olive oil in a large skillet and add the mushrooms. Continue to cook over a low-medium heat for about ten minutes, adding more oil if they're looking a little dry.

Meanwhile, whisk together some soy sauce (or tamari), sriracha, and preferred low carb sweetener. Mine is Lakanto at the moment, and you can get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC!
