Keto Japanese Mushroom Pasta with Shirataki

Mushroom pasta for keto and low carb. Easy recipe with shirataki noodles.After buying every kind of fungi available to write my guide to Japanese mushrooms, my first creation was this easy keto mushroom pasta with shirataki noodles. It doesn’t get much better than cream, butter, garlic and parsley, along with a pretty array of fungi. This version is rather elaborate, with eight varieties of mushrooms included – but it still tastes just as delicious when made with only one!

With so many mushrooms in the fridge, I wanted to try a dish that included them all! Not only did the variety look beautiful with all their different shapes and sizes, but they also gave a nice range of flavor and texture. This version includes long thin enoki, dancing maitake, chewy eringi, woody shiitake, nutty shimeji and sticky nameko. It even includes varieties from a number of different farms around Japan.

To keep this dish low carb and keto friendly, it uses my favorite Japanese shirataki noodles from Kibun foods. I’m still in love these noodles, they don’t require any special preparation nor have a strong odor, so are perfect for quick meals like this. The butter, cream and oil provide plenty of fat, while the mushrooms are relatively low in net carbs.

This bowl of mushroom pasta has 4g of net carbs in total (as pictured). Portions can be kept on the smaller side as the shirataki noodles are rather filling!

    Made this tonight and it was delicious! Just what I was looking for, simple and creamy but the mushrooms were amazing. I live in Australia so as you know there wasn’t a huge variety of mushrooms, but I found a stir-fry mix that included shiitake, eringi and oyster and I was happily surprised that I could really taste a difference in them. Thanks for sharing this, its low kcal and carbs really fitted in well with my keto diet, will definitely make again!

      I’m so happy you liked it Hannah! And thanks for the tip on the mushroom stir-fry mix, I’ll certainly be keeping my eye out for those next time I’m in Australia!

        What do I buy for the tub of cream? Thanks!

          Hi Jennifer, the thick cream listed in the recipe is an Australian term for heavy cream or whipping cream.

    What is 3/4 tub of thick cream in grams, ounces, cups, or mL?

    • Reply Happy Keto October 18, 2017 at 3:03 pm

      Hi Michelle, I use 300mL tubs of cream – so around 225mL!

  • Reply Rachel December 11, 2017 at 10:18 pm

    Not sure what is meant by a ‘tub of cream’? I’m in the States, so what would that translate to? TY. Rachel M.

      Hi Rachel! I usually use 300ml tubs, but last time I used a smaller 200ml tub which worked well too. The recipe seems to work best with 150ml to 225ml, depending on the consistency you like.

        Very late to the thread…. but maybe ‘tub of cream’ means Sour Cream? I can’t think of another ‘cream’ that would come in a tub and make sense in a noodle dish….

          Hi Jessica, thanks for commenting! The thick cream listed in the recipe is an Australian term for heavy cream or whipping cream. That said, I also like to make pasta sauces with sour cream, so that could maybe work well too 🙂

    This is the first time hearing about shirataki noodles! Thank you for the information and the recipe.

      I was amazed when I first discovered them, I hope you’ll give them a try sometime too!

    New to Keto food planning so I’m struggling to meal plan. Never heard of the mushroom noodles, but it just opened up a whole new world for me with food planning. Thanks for the tip and the yummy sounding recipe. As for the ‘tub of cream’ are you talking about whipping cream or 1/2 and 1/2? Thanks

      Hi Patty, welcome to keto! I hope you’ll give the recipe a shot, I find it helps break up dinners and is a real comfort meal. As for the cream, it’s what we call thickened cream in Australia, which is closest to whipping cream in the US. Wishing you the best of luck on your keto journey 🙂

    What do you fry the noodles in?

    • Reply Happy Keto June 18, 2018 at 12:18 pm

      Hi Pam, when initially frying the noodles – they should be fried in a ‘dry’ pan, meaning there isn’t anything else in the frying pan. This helps reduce the amount of water in the noodles and helps remove the fishy smell some brands have! I’ve written a little more about this process and shirataki noodles here.
