Roasted Red Peppers in Olive Oil

Since many of us are used to having a carb, a vegetable and a protein, it is hard to adjust this mindset when you start eating a keto diet. Therefore, sauteed mushrooms, not only are good for you, make a great side dish. Below is my go-to recipe for a quick and easy sauteed mushroom dish

  • 1 lb. (500 grams) mushrooms (any kind)

  • 3 Tbsp. Ghee

  • 1 Tbsp. free thyme or oregano leaves

  • Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


First, you can select any kind of mushrooms you like for this recipe. You can do all white mushrooms for example, or all Baby Bella’s (Crimini) or Shitake, or a combination of all three.
Wipe off all the mushrooms. (Do not rinse in water). Use a tea towel or strong kitchen paper towel instead to clean off any visible dirt.
You can slice them, cut them in half, or leave them whole.
In a sauté pan, heat your ghee over medium high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for 3 minutes, stirring often. At this point, the mushrooms are going to start to release their liquid.
Now, add your salt, pepper, fresh thyme, or oregano leaves and cook for another 3-4 minutes, until all the liquid has evaporated, and only the ghee is left. Taste for any last-minute seasoning adjustments and serve immediately.
Enjoy! Bon Appetit! Kali Orexi!


Here are a couple of variations: when you add the seasonings, add 2 Tbsp of lemon juice. Another variation is to add 2 Tbsp of white wine. The mushrooms are small, try to leave them whole instead of slicing them. The whole mushroom makes an appealing side dish when served with steak. Instead of fresh thyme or oregano leaves, you can substitute 2 teaspoons of dried thyme or oregano.
