What Started it all:
Pea, Mushroom, rice, air fryer

This vegetarian dish is packed with bold flavors and textures, creating a delicious and satisfying meal. The air fryer ensures the mushrooms have a perfect, crispy texture while the peas and rice provide a hearty base.


  • 2 cups of rice
  • 1 cup of peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups of mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley (for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Rice: Cook the rice according to the package instructions. Once cooked, set aside and keep warm.
  2. Season the Mushrooms: In a bowl, toss the sliced mushrooms with olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Ensure the mushrooms are evenly coated with the seasoning.
  3. Air Fry the Mushrooms: Preheat the air fryer to 375°F (190°C). Place the seasoned mushrooms in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Cook for 10-12 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through, until the mushrooms are golden brown and crispy.
  4. Cook the Peas: While the mushrooms are cooking, boil the peas in a small pot of salted water for 2-3 minutes until tender. Drain and set aside.
  5. Combine Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked rice, peas, and air-fried mushrooms. Gently toss to mix all the ingredients together.
  6. Serve and Garnish: Divide the rice mixture into four bowls. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve immediately.

This Pea and Mushroom Rice Bowl is a fantastic vegetarian meal that's both bold and flavorful. The air-fried mushrooms add a delightful crunch, while the combination of spices elevates the dish. Enjoy this hearty and satisfying bowl with friends or family!
