Instructions
 

  • Preheat your instabrand airfryer on bake function to 180 degrees.Slice the king oyster mushrooms lengthwise so they are long strips approx ½ cm in thickness.
  • Add them to the preheated air fryer along with a few sprays of oil approx 1 tsp and mix well so they are well coated. Bake for 10 mins, stopping occasionally to mix them around so they sear all over.
  • Mix together the ingredients for the dressing. Remove the mushrooms from the airfryer and add to a bowl along with the dressing and mix well. Put back in the airfryer for a final 5 mins, ensuring to shake once before they finish cooking, to ensure they caramelise evenly.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking, don't worry if they are super strong. You want them to balance out the juiciness from the tomato and lettuce and to bring a punch to the sandwich.Remove from the airfryer and it's now time to prepare the other ingredients.
  • Slice the tomatoes. Wash and rinse the lettuce. Toast the bread if you want it toasted.Add mayo to one side of each of the 4 slices of bread. On 2 slices add a layer of tomatoes, a layer of lettuce and then finally the mushrooms on top and put the remaining slice of bread with mayo on one side on top.Enjoy!
