Keto Grilled Brie Mushrooms with Onion Chutney
This lovely small meal can be served either as an appetiser for your next fancy dinner party, or enjoyed as a light meal along with some fresh salad leaves. The red onions are cooked down for a while on a very low heat, and their jammy sweetness balances the oozy Brie just perfectly. The general marrying of the two flavours are worth knowing, even for those that don’t like mushrooms. Some examples include Brie and onion jam keto sandwiches or toppings for grilled steak. And for those that LOVE the idea of a big, black mushroom – do this exact dish as it is written here and top your bun-less burger with it – you will never consider a bacon and Cheddar topping again!

Grilled Brie Mushrooms with Onion Chutney
Oozy grilled brie mushrooms with a jammy red onion topping... a lovely appetiser or light meal on a low-carb diet...
Heat the olive oil in a small pan and gently cook the onions over moderate heat until completely softened. Add the vinegar to deglaze the pan and reduce the heat to very low to continue to cook them until jammy and all the vinegar has evaporated. Set aside to keep warm.
In the meantime, preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F.
Wipe the mushrooms clean and gently remove and discard the stalk without damaging the mushroom.
Place the mushrooms on a roasting tray and brush with a very small amount of truffle-infused olive oil. Place in the oven for 7 minutes, then remove the tray from the oven. Using a spatula and some kitchen paper, tip each mushroom at an angle to drain any liquid.
Divide the sliced Brie between the ‘shrooms and return the tray to the oven for 5 minutes, or until you can see the cheese has melted into a gooey mess.
Remove the baked mushrooms from the tray using a spatula (I advise tipping it slightly again to allow excess moisture to run off) and serve with the onion chutney. Garnish with picked thyme leaves and finish with small scatter of Pink Himalayan Salt.
