Because there’s no limit to the dishes it can create, the Ninja Foodi is handy for both meat lovers and vegetarians alike. 

I’m featuring 10 delicious vegetarian recipes that can be made in the Ninja Foodi.

From steaming rice to baking sweet potatoes to air frying fries, there’s nothing this helpful gadget can’t do, proving that it’s every vegetarian’s best ally.

1. Ninja Foodi Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal 

Nothing beats a cozy breakfast to warm you on a cold winter morning.

This apple cinnamon oatmeal is a delicious and healthy way to start your day!

While I have nothing against instant oatmeal, I prefer the chewy texture of rolled oats.

If you’re on team rolled oats, too, this recipe is for you.

The beauty about cooking rolled oats in the Ninja Foodi is that it takes no time at all! You’ll get to enjoy a bowl in a matter of minutes. 

With some diced apples and a dash of cinnamon, oatmeal for breakfast has never tasted better.

2. Ninja Foodi Rice 

As a big rice eater, I love how the Ninja Foodi can cook any type of rice in just a few minutes.

Rice sometimes gets a bad rap among weight watchers for being high in carbs.

But when eaten in moderation, it’s actually good for you!

If you’re worried about the calories, though, you can always count on brown rice.

It has fewer calories and because its unprocessed, it keeps you fuller, longer.

But whether you prefer brown or white rice, it doesn’t matter – this recipe makes both.

3. Ninja Foodi Fried Green Tomatoes

As much as I love fried green tomatoes, the insane volume of oil used in cooking them is a turnoff.

With the Ninja Foodi, though, the problem is solved!

With its air fryer function, you can expect food to turn crispy and golden even without the oil. Isn’t that amazing?

I personally think it’s the most brilliant food technology invention!

These air-fried green tomatoes have such a crunchy coating, you won’t believe there was no oil involved!

4. Ninja Foodi Baked Potatoes 

While you can always rely on the oven to bake potatoes, we all know how long it takes!

Fortunately, with the Ninja Foodi, though, the baking time is cut in half.

Yep, that’s another one of the many benefits of owning this machine.

In just 30 minutes, your hearty baked potatoes will be ready for dinner.

If you’re wondering about the result, good news! The potatoes will still be as soft and fluffy as if they were baked in the oven.

Top the spuds with butter and cheese and you’re golden!

5. Ninja Foodi Mexican Rice  

While I do love classic steamed rice, I won’t say no to a fun and flavorful twist, either.

Whenever I’m in the mood for a jazzed-up rice dish, I always turn to Mexican rice.

Apart from the flavor, the vibrant color is also to die for. One look, and you can already tell it’s delicious!

In this recipe, fragrant basmati is flavored with tomato paste and spiced with peppers, cumin, and paprika.

In just 30 minutes, all that goodness is yours to devour. 

6. Ninja Foodi Veggie Pot Pie 

Is there anything more comforting than a hearty pot pie? I don’t think so!

It’s the first thing my taste buds crave whenever it gets chilly.

The problem is, there are so many steps involved, which is a challenge, especially when all you want to do is curl up under your blanket. 

But thankfully, the Ninja Foodi and this veggie pot pie recipe are here to come to the rescue!

I didn’t think it was possible to make pot pie in one pot. This recipe proved me wrong.

7. Ninja Foodi Corn on the Cob 

While it’s very basic, a simple snack of corn on the cob never disappoints.

Just picturing those golden kernels smothered with butter makes my mouth water.

The only thing I have against it is that it takes so long to cook, which isn’t ideal especially when I’m hangry.

But once again, the Ninja Foodi is here to take care of everything.

Delicious corn on the cob is ready to serve in just 4 minutes. That has to be a world record!

8. Sweet Potato Fries 

Fries are great, but to me, sweet potato fries are greater. Don’t be mad, I’m just really a huge fan of the sweet-n-salty flavor combo.

The only thing I don’t like about them is the ridiculous amount of oil required to cook them.

With an air fryer, though, I don’t have to worry about it anymore.

These air-fried sweet potato fries are crispy and tender, salty and sweet, just the way I like them. The best part? They’re ready in just 15 minutes.

9. Rice Pudding 

Yep, the Ninja Foodi makes desserts, too! If you haven’t gotten one yet, I hope this recipe convinces you. 

This rice pudding is wonderfully sweet, insanely creamy, and just downright delicious.

It’s infused with cinnamon which gives it a cozy, warming flavor.

And with the Ninja Foodi, all you need is 5 minutes. What sorcery even is this?!

10. Ninja Foodi Cauliflower

Cauliflower steaks, anyone? If your kid isn’t a fan, this recipe will make them one.

We all know cauliflower ranks very low on any child’s food list. But because it’s nutritious, we try to make them like it, anyway.

After many attempts, I’m happy to announce that I found the solution in this recipe. 

The secret? Two things: cheese and everything bagel seasoning.

With these two ingredients, trust that your kids will fall in love with cauliflower.

And with the Ninja Foodi, this magic recipe is ready in under 15 minutes!
