Ninja Foodi Recipes

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 I realised I needed to create a place to collate them all – and so this guide was born!

Ninja Foodi Recipes

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 well 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!

In this post, I am going to 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 that I have owned in the past, meaning that I could never crisp anything up after I had cooked it.

It also always meant that if I wanted an air fryer too (which I really did!) then I would be taking up a lot more countertop space to accommodate both appliances.

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!

3. Slow Cooker Recipes

I mainly use my standalone slow cooker for slow cooker recipes, but I do occasionally use the Ninja Foodi slow cooker function. I used it a lot when I was 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 of the nutrients. This handy function on the Ninja Foodi means you can effortlessly steam your favourite vegetables!

  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • 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 that I have made so please do check back!

Is it possible to make curried chicken with rice simultaneously in the one pot using frozen chicken breast, a jar of curry sauce & basmati rice, or must the rice be cooked separately?

Hi there, do you have a recipe for rye bread please. Mine is very crumbly and isn't rising well. Many thanks, Nicole

Liana, I have just purchased a Ninja Food but as a long retired 77 year old pensioner with minimal cooking experience I am feeling somewhat overwhelmed! Your emails are a wonderful resource and your willingness to share your delicious recipes is very much appreciated. You make the recipes sound delicious and achievable for a virgin chef! Have you produced a Foodi recipe book as I would love to purchase one rather than print off your delicious recipes? With very many thanks and much appreciation David
