Air Fryer mushrooms need just a few ingredients and take very little effort!
Mushrooms are seasoned and tossed with a bit of oil. Cook until tender and then toss with garlic butter. So simple.
Enjoy these as a side or even as a snack dipped into homemade ranch dressing! They also make a great topper for grilled steak or on burgers!
Air Fryer Mushrooms
Fried mushrooms are a go-to for us! This recipe takes those same ingredients and uses the air fryer for an effortless side dish!
MUSHROOMS This recipe works perfectly with white, button, baby bellas, crimini, and Portobello mushrooms.
SEASONINGS We coated ours with olive oil and soy sauce which adds both salt and color.
Garlic can burn at high temperatures so in this recipe, the garlic butter and parsley are added just before serving!
How to Fry Mushrooms in the Air Fryer
- Whisk olive oil & soy sauce together and toss with mushrooms (per recipe below).
- Place mushrooms in the fryer basket for about 6 to 8 minutes, shake the basket after 4 minutes.
- Remove mushrooms, toss with garlic butter & garnish with parsley. Serve warm.
I almost always have a batch of homemade garlic butter on hand. You can use store-bought or simply mix a bit of salted butter with a small clove of garlic, a dash of lemon juice, and some fresh parsley.
- Start with clean mushrooms. Avoid soaking them or washing them too much. A quick rinse in a colander, gently brush off any dirt and pat them dry.
- Don’t toss with the soy sauce until just before cooking.
- For the best air fryer mushrooms, be sure to preheat the Air Fryer before cooking.
- Avoid crowding the basket so they can get crispy all around. If cooking for a crowd, cook a couple of batches and then heat both for 1 minute or so before serving.

Will this work on a Lion Mane mushroom? If so how do i slice and dice it?; it’s the size of a med cauliflower.
I have never tried this recipe with lion mane mushrooms, maybe another reader can offer some assistance. We would love to hear how you prepare it!
These were so easy and so good! Just perfect.
What temperature do you cook mushrooms on in your air fryer
In step 1, Preheat air fryer to 400°F.
Instead of the regular air fryer, I have an air fryer oven which is like a convection oven. Do you think these would work in it? They would cook on racks.
I do think these would work, you might need to increase the cook time slightly. Let us know how it goes!
They worked great in the Power Air Fryer oven! I did increase the time to about 10 minutes. Thanks, as always!
You’re very welcome Shannon!
Shannon how did they turn out? I have the Air Fryer Oven as well and want to try this.
Best mushroom side dish ever and so easy. I served it with my Chile dish. One of the guests put them over the chile and gave another tasty dimension to the dish.
