What to Serve with Roasted Air Fryer Mushrooms

How Long to Air Fry Mushrooms

White button mushrooms are pretty small even when they’re whole. Because we’re working with sliced mushrooms, they won’t take very long to cook!

I find that 10 minutes is the perfect amount of time to get wonderful roasted mushrooms in the air fryer. We want them to be tender and juicy in the middle but give them enough time for those edges to get a little crispy.

The exact time is going to depend on the size of your mushrooms and the make and model of your air fryer, but 10 minutes is a good starting point. If your mushrooms seem extra big or extra small, maybe adjust the time up or down by a minute or so.

Tips for Making the Best Mushrooms in the Air Fryer

  • Slice the white button mushrooms in half vertically so all the pieces are relatively the same size. You don’t want to separate the mushroom caps from the stems or the pieces won’t cook at the same rate.
  • Shake the basket at least once during the cooking time to help the mushrooms cook evenly on all sides and get those amazing crispy edges.
  • Prefer to use oyster mushrooms instead? They’re similar in color, texture, and shape and have a slightly more complex flavor that makes for a fun twist.
  • Want to add a little more flavor? Try adding a tablespoon of soy sauce to the sliced mushrooms before cooking them.
  • Sprinkle fresh parsley over the roasted mushrooms before serving to add a pop of color.
