Never tried a roasted mushroom? Then you are in for a treat! Roasting most vegetables is a great way to pack in additional flavour mushrooms are no different.

These mushrooms take on a rich, smoky flavour from the paprika, which is balanced perfectly with the creamy tahini dressing. Throw in a handful of rocket, some shredded chicken or flaked fish, and top with Spiced Chilli & Lime Almonds to make a vegan keto meal out of it.

Ingredients (makes 3 side servings)

Roasted mushrooms:
  • 400 g white mushrooms, sliced (14.1 oz)
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (45 ml)
  • 1 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup parsley, plus more for garnish (15 g/ 0.5 oz)
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds (9 g/ 0.3 oz)
Tahini dressing:
  • 2 tbsp tahini sesame paste (32 g/ 1.1 oz)
  • 2 tbsp warm water (30 ml)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice (30 ml)


  1. Preheat oven to 200 °C/ 400 °F (conventional), or 180 °C/ 355 °F (fan assisted). Halve the mushrooms, and add to a baking tray with the oil, paprika and salt, and stir to combine until all of the mushrooms are coated.

  2. Bake uncovered for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  3. In the meantime, make the tahini dressing by combining all ingredients in a jar and shaking vigorously to combine (alternatively, whisk together in a small bowl). Optionally, add more water for a thinner consistency.
    Note: The dressing will make more than you need for this dish, but makes a lovely topping for other veggies and meat. Low-Carb Smoky Roasted Mushrooms
  4. Remove the mushrooms from the oven, and stir through the parsley.
