Keto Vegan Garlic Mushrooms with Balsamic

These keto vegan garlic mushrooms in balsamic are so good! They are full of delicious garlicky goodness and a nice change from typical sauteed mushrooms.

Saute these mushrooms in soy sauce, butter, garlic, and balsamic. In less than 15 minutes, you will have a fantastic keto garlic mushroom side dish!

You could also serve these as an appetizer if you cooked small mushrooms and kept them whole. Place cooked garlic mushrooms on a serving platter with toothpicks in each mushroom.

Keto Vegan Garlic Mushrooms with Balsamic Ingredients

  • Fresh mushrooms
  • Balsamic vinegar (I used prepared balsamic vinegar for this recipe but you can make a zero carb balsamic vinegar – keep scrolling for the recipe)

Is Balsamic Vinegar Keto?


Not all balsamic vinegar brands are the same. Check labels for net carb content.

Most balsamic bottles of vinegar are two net carbs per tablespoon. However, some brands are higher, with six net carbs per tablespoon.

One of the best low-carb brands of Balsamic Vinegar is Papa Vince’s Moscato Balsamic Vinegar. It has three net carbs per tablespoon. There are no add sugars, pesticides, or sulfates.

How to Make a Zero Carb Keto Balsamic Vinegar Substitute

Here’s what you’ll need to make Zero Carb Keto Balsamic Vinegar

  • 1 cup red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar substitute

In a small saucepan, combine red wine vinegar and brown sugar substitute.

Cook mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly. Bring to a low boil. Cook until the brown sugar substitute has dissolved. It will take a few minutes.

Store in the refrigerator in a sealed container.

Flank Steak with cheese, bacon, and spinach
Flank Steak with cheese, bacon, and spinach

I served these low-carb garlic mushrooms with these beautiful flank steak, cheese, bacon, spinach steak rolls.

We cooked these steaks in a hot cast iron in the skillet. I first heard of this method for cooking steak watching the Martha Stewart show.

If you have never cooked a steak in a cast-iron skillet under the broiler, you are missing out!

We put the skillet under the broiler for 15 minutes. Then, added the steaks to the skillet and cooked them for 3 1/2 minutes per side. The results are excellent!

This steak cooking method works for regular steaks too.

Brush both sides of the steaks with avocado or canola oil and then heavily season with salt and pepper.

Depending on the thickness of the steak, cook for 3 minutes per side.
