Air Fryer Mushrooms
I love mushrooms. Their earthy and umami flavor goes well as a supporting role in dishes and they’re also delicious by themselves as a side dish. Mushrooms pair well with parsley and garlic, and that is how the air fried mushrooms in this recipe are prepared. Cooking mushrooms in the air fryer produces delicious mushrooms with very little hassle. To summarize: Air fryer mushrooms = High deliciousness + Little effort = Boom.
Cooking Mushrooms in Air Fryer
It doesn’t get much simpler than cooking these mushrooms. After cleaning the mushrooms, toss with a little olive oil and salt. You can keep the mushrooms whole – no need to cut them into pieces. Put mushrooms in air fryer at 400 deg. F for about 15 – 20 minutes. Shake the basket every seven to ten minutes to redistribute the mushrooms and get even cooking.
Air Fryer Roasted Garlic and Parsley
Air fryer roasted garlic and parsley are going to be the main flavors we use to dance with the mushroom flavor. That’s right – we are going to air fry the garlic as well. Since we are making air fried mushrooms, we can get air fried garlic for free by throwing some garlic in there with the mushrooms. The air fryer roasted garlic should be cooked at the about the same time. No extra time or work needed.
Putting it all together
While the mushrooms are cooking, chop the parsley. When the garlic in the air fryer is done cooking, take them out and let them cool a bit – they should be slightly golden brown and cooked through. Mince the roasted air fryer garlic. Toss the air fried mushrooms with parsley and garlic. Season to your liking and drizzle with some extra olive oil if you like. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
