Recipe notes for Keto Stuffed Mushrooms :
Kitchen tools you’ll need:
- A baking tray
- A kitchen knife
- A sauté pan with lid
- 1 lb small to medium cremini mushrooms, also called “baby bellas”
- 1 TB avocado oil
- 1 lb ground turkey (or sub with “walnut meat” for vegans)
- 4 oz shredded mild cheddar cheese (sub cashew cheese for vegan/non-dairy)
- 3 fresh chopped garlic cloves
- sea salt and black pepper to taste (1/2 tsp salt and pepper)
- (power booster) Add 1 tsp RM lion’s mane powder for longevity
- 1 avocado sliced for serving
- fresh chopped parsley for serving
- (optional) nutritional yeast for serving
Easy recipe run down:
- Prep/cut your ingredients.
- Make the stuffing mix.
- Stuff the mushrooms.
- Bake the mushrooms in the oven.
- This recipe is very versatile. You can easily substitute the ground turkey for chicken or sausage. For vegans, you can use ground walnuts to make a “meat.” You can also use different cheeses or use no cheese at all! Play around with the ingredients and spices to make it enjoyable for you – get creative!
- Don’t have lion’s mane in stock? Try a different mushroom! Cordyceps would be a beautiful replacement, with the beneficial power of increasing energy and improving lung endurance!
- If you’re looking for more of an entree style recipe, you can easily substitute the baby mushrooms for four portobello caps.
- When you remove the cremini mushroom stems, thinly slice the bottom of the mushroom caps to create a flat base. This will help keep them from falling over when you stuff them.
- To prevent watery mushrooms during the baking process, sprinkle a little bit of salt on the mushrooms after you de-stem them. Then let them sit out while you make the rest of your filling. The salt helps draw out the moisture. Also, it helps to rinse the mushrooms before slicing.
- You can store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3 days.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
- Chop up your garlic gloves and set aside.
- Rinse your mushroom caps, pat them dry, and remove the stems. Chop up the stems to use in the turkey mixture. Set aside.
- Heat 1 TB avocado oil on medium heat in a skillet.
- Add the chopped garlic and sauté for a few minutes.
- Add the chopped up mushroom stems and sauté for a few minutes.
- Add the ground turkey to the same skillet and cook until the turkey is no longer pink. This should take about 7 minutes.
- Add salt and pepper to taste and the optional power boost lion’s mane mushroom. Stir until everything is mixed.
- Add your cheese to the skillet and cover for 1-2 minutes. Remove the cover and stir until the cheese is completely melted and combined with the turkey. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Fill each mushroom cap with some of the turkey mixture, and place them on your lined baking tray.
- Place the pan in the pre-heated oven and roast until the mushrooms are slightly browned around the edges. This should take around 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve with avocado slices, fresh chopped parsley, and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast if desired. Enjoy!
*Depending on the size of your mushroom caps, you might have leftover turkey mixture that you can enjoy however you like!

Important note on the quality of ingredients
In this recipe, there’s an option to enjoy even more mushroom love by adding lion’s mane, a functional mushroom. Functional mushrooms are loaded with a plethora of amazing benefits. Aware of these benefits, many companies offer functional mushroom supplements. But here the emphasis on *real* ingredients should once again be highlighted because the many mushroom supplements tout all the benefits of mushroom but DO NOT ACTUALLY CONTAIN ANY MUSHROOMS at all. Rather, they contain mycelium (the mushroom root system) and the rice or grain from which the mycelium is grown on.
Mycelium, known as the vegetative body, is the precursor to the mushroom (fruiting body) that you see outside in your yard. It’s important to know that mycelium and the mushroom are not the same, and they have very different properties.
Such confusion and package mislabeling often leads many people to put their money towards ineffective products. In fact, studies show that without the actual mushroom (fruiting body), much of the active compounds, that account for these health benefits, are severely reduced. Many times, what you’re left with is nothing more than an inactive grain powder that your body can’t use. The key takeaway to remember is that the highest concentration of beta-glucans and other therapeutic compounds are always found in the mushroom (fruiting body) – which Real Mushrooms ensures is a stable source for all of its products.
