How to make low carb Italian Baked Mushrooms
This side dish is naturally low in carbs and it’s so simple to make that you will want to make them again and again!
- First, you’ll preheat your oven and fill a rimmed baking sheet with the mushrooms. It’s okay if they overlap a bit because they will shrink as they cook.
- Mix together the melted butter, oil, vinegar, garlic, herbs, salt, and pepper, and once they are well-combined drizzle the mixture over the mushrooms. Toss the mushrooms until they are coated.
- Once the mushrooms are ready to bake, pop them in the oven for 10 minutes and then turn them and bake an additional 5-10 minutes. When they have reached your desired tenderness you can garnish them with parmesan and additional herbs.

How to store and reheat
If you have leftover mushrooms you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. They will reheat great in the microwave or sauteed in a skillet.
If you need to save the mushrooms for longer than 3-5 days I suggest freezing them. Raw mushrooms can turn mushy after freezing but cooked mushrooms freeze beautifully! Let them cool to room temperature and then freeze them in a single layer on a plate or baking sheet. Once they have frozen you can transfer them to a freezer bag. When you are ready to reheat your frozen mushrooms do so in a skillet or the microwave without thawing.
