In my review of the Ninja Foodi, I discussed how incredibly versatile this wonderful appliance was! I’ve made so many Ninja Foodi recipes now that I realised I needed to create a place to collate them all – so this guide was born!
I’m gradually adding more recipes, both making them and writing them up – so stay tuned as this guide grows longer with more recipes you can make in your Ninja Foodi!
Are you wondering what can be cooked in the Ninja Foodi?
I’ve had mine for over a year now, and I’ve really managed to put it through its paces (you can check out my Ninja Foodi review here) – although there are still many more Foodi recipes I’m yet to experiment with!
Updated: I have the Ninja Foodi 15-in-1 – review soon (spoiler: I LOVE it!)
In this post, I will give you an overview of all the different recipes that can be made in this wonderful multi-cooker.
If you have any questions about any aspect of the Ninja Foodi, please leave me a comment below, and I’ll do my best to answer it.
1. Air Fryer Recipes
Yes, the Ninja Foodi is also an air fryer! I was so excited to get a multi-cooker that not only had an electric pressure cooker but also an air fryer.
This was always the missing feature of the other multicookers I have owned in the past, meaning that I could never crisp anything up after cooking it.
It also always meant that if I wanted an air fryer too (which I really did!), I would take up a lot more countertop space to accommodate both appliances.
- Air Fryer Chips
- Air Fryer Potato Wedges
- Air Fryer Chicken Legs
- Air Fryer Chicken Thighs
- Air Fryer Baked Potato
- Air Fryer Steak
- Air Fryer Bacon
- Ninja Foodi Roast Potatoes
2. Pressure Cooker Recipes
Using an electric pressure cooker is a great way to reduce the cooking time of meals that traditionally take longer.
You can cook many different recipe types in a pressure cooker, but they are best suited to foods like stews, soups and curries – but that’s not to say you can’t cook other varieties – I’ve successfully made rice, whole roast joints and even a cheesecake!
- Ninja Foodi Beef Stew
- Ninja Foodi Chicken Casserole
- Ninja Foodi Gammon Joint
- Ninja Foodi Sausage Casserole
- Ninja Foodi Chicken and Chorizo Stew
- Ninja Foodi Chicken Curry
- Ninja Foodi Cajun Chicken and Rice
- Ninja Foodi Pulled Pork
- Ninja Foodi Basmati Rice
- Ninja Foodi Chilli Con Carne

3. Slow Cooker Recipes
I mainly use my standalone slow cooker for slow cooker recipes, but I occasionally use the Ninja Foodi slow cooker function. I used it a lot while testing recipes for my slow cooker recipe book!
Here are some slow cooker recipes you can also make in the Ninja Foodi!
4. Steamed Vegetables
Steaming vegetables is a great way to cook them because it preserves many nutrients. This handy function on the Ninja Foodi means you can steam your favourite vegetables effortlessly!
- Brussel Sprouts
5. Dehydrator Recipes
This function is only available on the Ninja Foodi Max version. It was one of my reasons for opting for this model (as well as it is larger). I’ve always wanted a dehydrator but didn’t want another kitchen appliance taking up valuable kitchen worktop space.
- Banana Chips
- Apple Chips
- Beef Jerky
- Sun-Dried Tomatoes
6. Baked/Roasted Recipes
- Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables
This is the first version of my Ninja Foodi Recipes Guide – over the coming weeks and months, I will be adding many more recipes I have made, so please do check back!
