What are mushrooms?

Mushrooms are fruiting bodies of fungi that grow above and below the ground. They are well-known for their meaty texture, earthy flavor, and a great source of nutrients like fiber, potassium, and vitamin D. Mushrooms come in many types such as button, cremini, shiitake, and more. Different types of mushrooms have different tastes and nutritional profiles.

Can you air fry mushrooms?

The answer is a big fat YES! Air fryers are versatile kitchen appliances that can cook a variety of dishes without using much oil. With the help of an air fryer, you can make mushrooms that are tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. Plus, they cook faster than the traditional oven-baked mushrooms. Cooking mushrooms in the air fryer also gives you the chance to experiment with various seasonings and flavors.

Here are the ingredients for the recipe:

  • 1 pound mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Steps to cook the mushrooms:

  1. Preheat the air fryer at 375°F.

  2. In a bowl, mix together mushrooms, olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, thyme, salt, and black pepper.

  3. Arrange the mushrooms in a single layer in the air fryer basket.

  4. Cook the mushrooms for 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Shake the basket every 5-7 minutes to ensure even cooking.

Pro tips and variations:

  • You can add grated parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast for an added cheesy flavor.
