Get ready to fall in love and likely replace your oven with the Ninja Foodi and these 65+ Easy Ninja Foodi Recipes!

First, maybe you are asking yourself…what is a Ninja Foodi?

65+ Easy Ninja Foodi Recipes (1)

It’s the only appliance you will ever need. I can tell you that if you purchase a Ninja Foodi, you can safely pass on your Air Fryer, Instant Pot, and Slow Cooker or Crock-Pot. Why?

It’s all of these things…in one! It even bakes!

It’s literally the ONLY appliance now of those ones mentioned above that I keep on my counter and I use it nearly every single day.

I have a big list of the Top 10 Ninja Foodi Recipes here as well on YouTube!

What can you make in the Ninja Foodi?

65+ Easy Ninja Foodi Recipes (2)

This is the fabulous part about using the Ninja Foodi. All the recipes you see that are Instant Pot, Slow Cooker, or Air Fryer work the exact same way in the Ninja Foodi. It’s the best small appliance.

Did I mention it bakes too? YES! It will replace your oven. I’m just saying.

The Ninja Foodi looks very similar to an Instant Pot, but it functions like many appliances all in one. If I’m making a slow cooker meal, I simply put it in the Ninja Foodi and it’s ready to go in the evening just like if I was using my slow cooker.

That’s the same for the Instant Pot as well. If you want to make Instant Pot Meatballs, it works the exact same way!

How does the Ninja Foodi convert from a slow cooker, pressure cooker, and air fryer?

The Ninja Foodi comes with two lids, this means you have a lid that’s already attached to it that is used for air crisp or air fryer. There is also a basket that goes inside the pot for the air fryer as well.

If you plan to use the pressure cooker option or slow cooker option, there is a second lid for it. This lid looks very similar to the Instant Pot lidand it also comes with a rack for your pot as well just like the Instant Pot.

If you prefer though, I actually decided to purchase this glass lid to go with mine and it works just like you would use it for a slow cooker.

It’s so easy to use, we’ve cooked so many things in it I’ve literally lost count at this point. It has asauté function as well, so I cook meat and veggies in it too before using the other functions.

Check out my Honest Review of the Ninja Foodi!

Today, I wanted to gather all the recipes from my site that I have used in the Ninja Foodi. Sit back too because there are a lot of them. I’ll also add a few from other websites as well.

How do you make recipes in the Ninja Foodi?

65+ Easy Ninja Foodi Recipes (3)

Each of these recipes has been made in my Ninja Foodi the exact same way as it is written for the slow cooker, instant pot, or air fryer. It will be made the exact same way.

When making the recipe, simply select on your Ninja Foodi the appropriate button matching the method, for example, if it’s an air fryer recipe, use the ‘air crisp’ button on the Ninja Foodi. If it’s an instant pot recipe, use the “pressure cooker” button.

Should I use cooking spray in my Ninja air fryer? ›

Never Use Nonstick Spray
