Recipe Tips

If you don't have Manchego cheese, try other options such as cheddar, Comte, Gruyerre or Gouda.

You can serve 3 to 4 mushrooms as an appetizer, or 5 to 7 mushrooms as a main course alongside a simple low-carb side salad for a satisfying meal.

Instead of brown mushrooms you can use white mushrooms or Potrobello mushrooms which are also bigger so you will need just about 2 mushrooms per serving.

For extra protein you can add some sliced, crisped up bacon, sausage meat or shredded chicken. Enjoy!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
