Roast potatoes… they’re something that have my heart. If you’re a fan of a nice roast dinner, like I am, then I’m sure you’ll absolutely LOVE these roast potatoes made in the Ninja Foodi!

I want crispy roast potatoes, without them being greasy, and soft and fluffy on the inside. These roast potatoes, cooked in the Ninja Foodi, absolutely hit the spot every time and they require VERY minimal oil and no flour, yet they are delicious and crisp too!

This recipe was made in the *OP500UK, which has now been replaced with the *OL550UK but as long as your Ninja Foodi has the air crisp/air fryer and pressure cooker options you’ll be able to recreate this recipe at home in under 30 minutes. I’ve also made it in the OL750UK with the same results too.

If you don’t have a Ninja Foodi, or the right model for this particularly recipe, then be sure to check out my air fryer potatoes instead! They’re super simple and don’t require pressure cooking, although personally I don’t think they’re a patch on these roast potatoes which are full of delicious crisp edges and super fluffy inside!

Ingredients for making roast potatoes in the Ninja Foodi:

250ml water

600g potatoes

Spray oil (vegetable or another with a high smoking point). Extra virgin olive oil isn’t quite right for this recipe as you’re cooking at quite high temperatures.

Herbs of choice (I love to use sage, garlic powder and rosemary)

Salt

Cooked air fryer stuffing balls decorated with sage leaves

Method for making roasted potatoes in the Ninja Foodi:

Add 250ml of water to your Ninja Foodi.

Peel, wash and chop your potatoes.

Place into the pressure cooking pot.

Pressure cook for 3 minutes. Use quick release.

Drain your potatoes. Discard the water.

Shake roughly in the pot.

Transfer the potatoes to the air fryer basket.

Spray lightly with spray oil. I find around 10-15 sprays sufficient to cover all of the potatoes.

Cook on 190C for 10 minutes.

Shake well.

Spray again with another 10-15 sprays of oil.

Add herbs of choice. I love fresh garlic, sage and rosemary. You can use any herbs that you’re a fan of but I love to use frozen herbs from my own herb planters.

Cook at 200C for 6-8 minutes. Shake after 4 minutes.

Depending on the size of your potato you may need a few more minutes. Exercise some common sense here – if they’re not brown and crispy then they’re not cooked!

I find that 18 minutes is perfect for the size of potato that I like to serve to my family.

Best potatoes to use for roast potatoes in the Ninja Foodi

Personally I feel that Maris Piper are the absolute best potatoes to turn into roast potatoes. Or to use for most potato recipes really! Russet potatoes are another favourite of mine, but they’re not always readily available in the supermarket.

Can you cook these from frozen?

Yes, absolutely. I’d suggest you pressure cook, drain, fluff and then air fry for 5 minutes. After that you can cool and pop in to a freezable container. Cook from frozen for around 20 minutes at the same temperature, shaking the air fryer basket at least once during cooking.

Preparing and freezing is a great way to save a little time and/or effort if you’re going to be having guests. I love to do this with a variety of foods so that we can enjoy our favourite meals when we’re a little bit short on time.

Want to make this recipe with baby potatoes?

You’ll want to reduce cooking time. I would personally pressure cook for 1 minute and then start with 10 minutes in the air fryer. If required cook for another 5 minutes.

Can you cook a roast in a Ninja Foodi?

Absolutely! I love to make slow cooker roast beef and while this is resting I will prepare these roast potatoes, plus air fryer parsnips and air fryer baby carrots. Then I will use the beef dripping to make a homemade beef gravy. If I fancy something different I’ll make onion gravy.
