How to make Air Fryer Mushrooms
These mushroom caps can be served whole or sliced, similarly to a steak!
I like the presentation of a sliced mushroom, but you can also keep them whole and top them like a burger!
- Clean the mushrooms well under slowly running water. Gently rub to remove dirt from mushroom caps. While the under side should be dark brown, there should be no brown spots left.
- Add oil to mushroom caps.
- Add coconut aminos to mushrooms and a pinch of garlic salt. Gently move bowl side to side to coat caps.
- Add mushrooms to air fryer basket, top side down, and cook for about 10 minutes at 350°F or 180°C. Flip mushrooms over with about 2 minutes left in the cook time.
How to clean a mushroom
Most mushrooms are covered in dirt, even the ones pre-washed from the store.
Washing mushrooms is a delicate task, but it's best to wash them thoroughly in advance than get a mouthful of grit.
Remember: Mushrooms should be gently washed in cold water and rubbed clean of dirt.
Be sure to use gently running water or fill a mixing bowl with cold water and wash the mushrooms under the still water by hand.
One at a time is best!
What to serve with Air Fryer Mushrooms
This portobello mushroom steak is similar in taste to a beef steak and goes well with any steakhouse side.
Keep it light with a side salad or asparagus or get some comfort food with mashed potatoes or macaroni and cheese.
These Air Fryer Mushrooms are also great in other dishes, like on top of fettuccine alfredo or as leftovers for Taco Tuesday!
