  • Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi


  • 4 Veggie Burgers Frozen


  • Preheat your air fryer to 375F. This will take about 3-5 minutes depending on the size and power of your air fryer. Don’t skip this step!
  • While the air fryer is preheating, remove the veggie burgers from the package. There is no need to add additional oil or even grease the air fryer basket.
  • Place the veggie burgers in a single layer at the bottom of the air fryer basket and set the timer for 15 minutes. You may not need to use all of that time, but it’s best to have more on the clock in case you do.
  • After about 8 minutes, flip over the veggie burgers gently using a spatula. Air fry for another 5-8 minutes or until veggie burgers are crispy on the outside and warmed through on the inside. Remove with a spatula and serve warm on a toasted bun.
