Keto Italian Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

Keto Italian Cheese Stuffed MushroomsPin recipeFollow us 50.2k

I first made these mushrooms when I was having stomach trouble and just couldn’t stand the thought of digesting meat. Now, trust me, this is not a usual position for me as I do love a good piece of meat.

But these stuffed mushrooms are delicious and filling, without feeling heavy or hard to digest.

They’re a great meat-free meal to add to your repertoire and can be served with vegetables or just a lovely tossed salad. The combination of creamy cheeses and tangy goat’s cheese is perfect against the classic combination of spinach and garlic. I would think that you could easily adapt the filling to suit your tastes, keeping within keto guidelines of course. Give them a try and see what you think.
