Air Fried Mushroom Recipe

Today I’m excited to share my favorite air fried mushroom recipe with you. As a mushroom enthusiast and avid home cook, I’ve perfected this recipe over the years, and it never fails to impress. Air frying is a fantastic way to cook mushrooms, as it gives them a delightful crispiness without the need for excessive oil. Whether you’re a mushroom lover like me or just looking for a delicious and healthy snack, this recipe is sure to become a staple in your kitchen.


  • 1 pound of fresh mushrooms (such as button, cremini, or shiitake)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese (optional, for topping)


  1. Start by cleaning the mushrooms with a damp paper towel to remove any dirt. If they are particularly dirty, you can gently rinse them and pat them dry.
  2. Once the mushrooms are clean, slice them into evenly sized pieces. I like to keep them on the larger side to retain some juicy texture.
  3. In a bowl, combine the sliced mushrooms, olive oil, minced garlic, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Toss everything together until the mushrooms are well coated with the seasonings.
  4. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C). If your air fryer requires preheating, be sure to do so.
  5. Transfer the seasoned mushrooms to the air fryer basket. Spread them out in a single layer to ensure even cooking.
  6. Cook the mushrooms in the air fryer for 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through to ensure they cook evenly. Keep an eye on them towards the end to prevent overcooking.
  7. Once the mushrooms are golden brown and crispy, they’re ready to be served. If desired, sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top for an extra savory touch.

This air fried mushroom recipe is incredibly versatile. You can enjoy the mushrooms as a delightful appetizer, toss them into salads for extra crunch and flavor, or even use them as a delicious topping for burgers and pizzas. The possibilities are endless!
