Mushrooms and onions are commonly considered a garnish, but they count toward your daily vegetable requirement. Adults should eat at least 2 1/2 cups of vegetables every day, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Whether they are piled on top of a streak or tossed into a stir-fry, each ½ cup of mushrooms and onions represents one-fifth of your daily vegetables.

Onions

Each 1/4 cup of sauteed onions has 29 calories, 1.71 g of carbohydrate, 0.21 g of protein, 2.35 g of total fat, 0.321 g of saturated fat and 0.4 g of fiber.

Mushrooms

Each 1/4 cup of sauteed mushrooms has only 7 calories, 1.09 g of carbohydrate, 0.97 g of protein, 0.09 g of total fat, 0.011 g of saturated fat and 0.5 g of fiber.
