Keto Mushroom Gravy

As a mushroom enthusiast and keto diet follower, I’ve always been on the lookout for delicious and healthy recipes. That’s why I’m excited to share my favorite keto mushroom gravy recipe with you. Not only is it low in carbs and high in flavor, but it’s also incredibly versatile and perfect for drizzling over your favorite dishes.

The Magic of Mushrooms

Mushrooms are a staple in the keto diet due to their low carbohydrate content. They are also packed with essential nutrients like vitamin D, antioxidants, and fiber. When incorporated into a gravy, mushrooms add a rich and earthy flavor that elevates any dish.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces of your favorite mushrooms, sliced (I love using a combination of cremini and shiitake)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup beef or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (to thicken the gravy)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add the sliced mushrooms and minced garlic. Sauté until the mushrooms are golden brown and the liquid has evaporated.
  3. Next, pour in the broth and allow the mixture to simmer for about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the heavy cream and let it simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle the xanthan gum over the gravy and whisk continuously to avoid clumping. Continue to simmer until the gravy reaches your desired consistency.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Remove from heat and serve over your favorite keto-friendly dishes.

Personal Touch

I love adding this keto mushroom gravy to my meals, whether it’s drizzled over a perfectly grilled steak, spooned onto roasted vegetables, or used as a dip for my low-carb bread. The possibilities are endless, and the savory umami flavor of the mushrooms takes every dish to the next level.


With just a few simple ingredients and easy steps, you can create a flavorful keto mushroom gravy that will become a staple in your kitchen. It’s a comforting and indulgent addition to any keto meal, and it proves that healthy eating can be utterly delicious.
