In less than 15 minutes, you have a perfect vegetarian side! Squeeze some lemon, garnish with finely chopped parsley leaves and serve.

Adjust the seasonings to suit your taste. Also, use any spices or seasoning of your choice.
If making a large quantity, cook in batches. Do not crowd the air fryer basket.
Always pre-heat the air fryer for 5 minutes before beginning the cooking process.
Make sure you shake the basket in between for even cooking.
Feel free to add the air fryer mushrooms to your salad, sandwich, or burgers. You can also add them to noodles, and pasta for a special dinner. Serve pepper mushrooms along with a bowl of warm soup on a cold day.
