Air Fryer Mushrooms are a flavorful healthy side dish you can make in 15 minutes! They are so delicious and easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. This is the best way to cook mushrooms by far. 



  • 16 ounces baby Bella mushrooms – cleaned
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1.5 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • Chopped parsley – optional for garnish



  1. Clean the mushrooms lightly with a wet paper towel or you can rinse them with water then dry them. Slice the mushrooms in half.  I left the smaller ones whole. 
  2. Place the sliced mushroom into a medium bowl and drizzle then with the oil and tamari. Then season them with the garlic powder, onion powder and thyme.  Toss to coat them in the seasoning. 
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F and spray the basket with olive oil cooking spray.  Place the mushrooms into the air fryer in an even layer.  Cook them at 400 degrees F for 12-14 minutes, flipping them in the basket as they cook.  I flipped them around 8 minutes. 
  4. Once the mushrooms are done cooking, remove them from the air fryer and place them onto a plate.  Top with fresh chopped parsley and enjoy!


  1. Make sure you cut the mushrooms so that they are all the same size for even cooking. 
  2. Shake the mushrooms in the air fryer basket as they cook.  I like to shake them at around 8 minutes then let them continue to cook for the remaining cook time. 
  3. Serve immediately. 
  4. You can store these cooked mushrooms after they have cooled, in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. 
  5. Reheat in the microwave or right in the air fryer at 350 degrees F for a few minutes.
