Air Fryer Garlic Mushrooms – Diabetes Daily

It’s official. Cooking mushrooms in the air fryer is my new preferred way to make them. Why? Well, air frying mushrooms is faster than oven roasting, there’s less cleanup, and they taste absolutely perfect!

It’s for these same reasons I absolutely love cooking zucchini, sweet potato fries, and heck, even pork tenderloin in my air fryer!

And did I mention these air fryer garlic mushrooms are vegan, Whole 30, paleo, gluten-free, keto, low-carb, and WW friendly?

I know that’s a long list, but basically, all I’m saying is that this recipe works for lots and lots of different ways of healthy eating. So whatever diet your family is following, this is a side dish that would work for pretty much everyone!

Maybe the best thing about this recipe though is that it’ll turn even mushroom skeptics into mushroom lovers! Yup, it’s really that good!

Garlic Mushrooms

  • 16
    baby bella mushrooms
  • 1.5
    oil of choice
    see variations below
  • 2
  • 1/4

Asian-Inspired Variation, All Optional

  • 1.5
    sesame oil
  • 1
    balsamic vinegar
  • 2
     green onions 

Italian-Inspired Variation, All Optional

  • 1.5
    olive oil
  • 1
    fresh parsley
  • 1
    coconut aminos


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. If your air fryer doesn’t have a preheat setting, turn to 400 degrees and wait about 5 minutes for it to come to temperature.

  2. Meanwhile, cut the mushrooms in half and mince the garlic.

  3. Add the mushrooms, oil of choice, salt, and garlic to a large bowl. If using the optional balsamic vinegar or coconut aminos, add that in as well. Mix well to coat the mushrooms with the oil and seasonings.

  4. Once the air fryer is hot, pour the seasoned mushrooms into the air fryer basket in a single layer. Although the mushrooms may touch (they’ll shrink a lot during cooking), be careful not to overcrowd the basket too much.

  5. Close the air fryer and cook for 5 minutes, then stop to gently shake the basket or use a spatula to turn them.

    Air fry again for another 5-7 minutes, checking near the end of the cook time to make sure they aren’t overcooking.

  6. Transfer the cooked mushrooms to a serving bowl or dish, garnish with green onions or parsley (if using), and serve!
