How to cook Gardein Ultimate Plant-Based burgers in air fryer

Gardein Ultimate Plant-Based


  1. Preheat air fryer to 380F
  2. Cook for 11 minutes at 380F
  3. Flip burgers once during cooking at half way point

This recipe is based of using the COSORI Air Fryer (affiliate link, we get a fee if you buy!).

Gardein’s entrant in the plant based burger space is loaded with quite a bit of fat. With that in mind, you don’t need to use any added oil here, they should have plenty locked in to keep things from sticking during cooking.

I particularly like how the air fryer crisps up the edge of these Gardein burgers which I find adds a more realistically-meaty finish too.
