The Large Portobello Mushroom Caps are Ideal for Filling and Roasting

In the fall, I love not only the colorful leaves in Ontario, but also the abundance of mushrooms. Wherever we go on a hike, the forests and lake shores are full of more and more beautiful mushrooms, I am crazy for them! Not only do I love to watch and take photos of them, but I also like to eat them. I knew some edible wild mushroom varieties in Hungary, but here in Canada I don’t dare pick them up and make them yet. Maybe I’ll learn this one day too, but until then, there will be in-store and much safer versions for mushroom eating, like the Portobello mushrooms.

The Portobello mushroom caps are easy to find in many grocery stores. These huge size mushroom heads are ideal to fill, so I have chosen 10 cm /4 inch size heads. These can allow for more stuffing and look like the dish is on a thick portobellos plate.

Can You Eat Portobello Mushrooms on Keto Diet?

Every edible mushroom, like portobello as well, are naturally low in carbohydrates, making them a keto-friendly food. Although there are very many varieties, such as oyster, white and brown champions, but concretely 100 g of portobello, which equals about one head of mushroom, has 19 calories, 2 grams protein and 3 grams of total carbohydrates, according to the  USDA. Enjoy them raw in salads, or cooked in dishes like egg scrambles, soups, stir-fry, casseroles, or like in this recipe, stuffed with low carb ingredients like ground pork, cheese, bacon and some vegetables.

The Champion mushroom mixed into the filling loosens the filling, as I don’t put buns in it as usual to reduce the carbohydrate content of the stuffed mushrooms. Because of this, our stuffed Portobello even becomes gluten free and we hit two birds with one stone. Tiny diced bell peppers and feta also loosens the texture of the filling, but not only does it help in this, it makes the food much more colorful and appetizing.

I stuffed the remaining stuffing into two halves of a half-cut bell pepper, so if someone sitting at the table who doesn’t like mushrooms too much, he or she can taste this dish too.
