How to cook mushrooms in the air fryer
Air frying mushrooms is really easy!
- Air fryer mushrooms temperature: 400F
- Air fryer mushrooms cooking time: 10 minutes
All you need to do is chop the mushrooms, toss them with olive oil, salt and pepper and other preferred seasonings and air fry for 10 minutes at 400F, shaking the air fryer basket halfway through. If you buy pre-sliced mushrooms, it will save you a chopping step :)
Can you air fry whole mushrooms instead of sliced? Sure! Just increase the cooking time for whole mushrooms by 5 minutes, then check to see if they are ready (if they need more time, add another 5 minutes).
Air fryer mushrooms are so versatile, you can eat and serve them so many different ways! Serve them as a side dish, as part of healthy meal prep, as a salad topping, on burgers or sandwiches, add them to pasta dishes or stir fries. And since mushrooms are so filling, they also make a great plant-based main dish!

I LOVE mushrooms in making these tonight in one air fryer and making your air fryer meatballs in my other air fryer! In a hoagie roll with cheese. 1 question how lean is the ground beef in the meatballs?
I like to use 80% lean ground beef, but the meatballs recipe works with any type of ground meat.
Worked for me on first attempt
