  • 300g chestnut mushrooms , quartered or sliced
  • a few thyme sprigs , leaves picked
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil or other neutral oil, plus extra for the bread
  • 2 slices of sourdough
  • 1 garlic clove , peeled but left whole (optional)
  • small handful of chopped parsley (optional)


  1. Tip the mushrooms into a bowl, scatter over the thyme leaves and garlic powder, and season. Stir everything together to combine. Drizzle over the oil and mix again.

  2. Preheat the air-fryer, if necessary, to 200C. Tip the mushrooms into the basket and cook for 12-15 mins, mixing up halfway through, until golden and beginning to crisp up.

  3. A few minutes before the end of cooking, toast the bread. If you like, you can rub the toast with a garlic clove for extra flavour. Drizzle with a little oil, then spoon over the mushrooms. Scatter with parsley, if you like.
