Instructions

Air Fryer Mushrooms Flavor Combination #1

  • Pre-heat the air fryer to 375 Degrees F.
  • Cut the mushrooms to your desired size. RECOMMENDED: Cut small and medium sized mushrooms in half and quarter large mushrooms.
  • Add the mushrooms to a large bowl and toss with the olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Transfer to the air fryer basket.
  • Air fry for 4-5 minutes, stirring halfway through. If the mushrooms are overlapping quite a bit, increase the cook time to 6-7 and stir 2-3 times to ensure even cooking.
  • For best results, serve immediately.

EQUIPMENT

Notes

The recipe, as written above, includes pre-heating the air fryer. If you prefer not to pre-heat the air fryer, you'll need to increase the cook time to 8-10 minutes.
Note 2 - Mushroom options: white button mushrooms, small brown mushrooms, portabella mushrooms (cut to smaller size), oyster mushrooms or shitake mushrooms.
Note 3 - Feel free to replace the Worcestershire Sauce with Soy Sauce, if desired.
Note 4 - It can be hard to distribute fresh garlic into each bite. We find using a mix of fresh garlic and powdered garlic distributes the garlic flavor better.
