Food trend predictions are a fabulous opportunity to try things you’ve never eaten before or resurrect old favourites you’ve forgotten about and of course Foodies100 bloggers are always way ahead of the trends.
We share our favourite recipes to match this year’s predictions…
Tacos are going to be huge in 2017, you may have even seen Taco restaurants popping up in your town. They’re a great option for a quick mid-week meal, they are packed full of flavour and this messy finger food will get even the fussiest eater interested. Easy Peasy Foodie has a super tasty turkey, sweet potato & black bean taco recipe with all the flavours synonymous with tacos; paprika, chilli, cumin and lime and a side of salsa. Mmmmm, mmmm.
Along with Forbes claiming Lisbon to be one of the coolest places to go in 2017, there is also a surge in the popularity of Portuguese food. Who doesn’t love a gorgeous Portuguese custard tart, or Pasteis de Nata? CakeyBoi has a good step by step guide to making them.
If you like wowing people with your food creations you have to try out this year’s ‘next big thing’, marbling! Luckily we have an expert ‘in the house’ showing us how to perfect this technique. Check out Every Nook & Cranny’s beautiful galaxy glazed millionaire’s slices.
The cauliflower trend will continue to rise along with broccoli, aubergine as meat replacements and The Whole Ingredient does cauliflower so well she can convert even the most vegetable resistant among us! We especially love these sticky peanut cauliflower wings.
Octopus may not be everybody’s cup of tea according to What Dad Cooked Says, but he still says try it. He cooks octopus three different ways; Galician full of Spanish flavours, Italian style and Daube, French Provencal style. They all look really tasty.
Purple Foods are reputed to be extra healthy as they tend to contain high levels of antioxidants and nutrients. So this year expect them to be more popular than ever, think purple carrots, blueberries, red cabbage, acai berries and black rice! You can’t beat beetroot though for it’s versatility in sweet and savoury dishes and what tastier way to eat it than Veggie Desserts’ slow cooker beetroot chocolate cake with beetroot vanilla topping. Mouthwatering.
Fermented food and pickles are working their way up the food trend charts, so look out for kimchi, kombucha and Yacatan pickles. Food To Glow’s Sichuan pepper cabbage kimchi & sweet miso pumpkin kimchi recipes look delicious and so full of goodness.
Naan Pizza’s are a favourite in our house already but we love the look of this chicken, spinach & paneer naan pizza from What To Have For Dinner Tonight.
There are numerous health benefits to be gained from eating Sea Vegetables in moderation, and they also add a delicious salty kick to your meals as well as making great snacks. Allotment 2 Kitchen makes tasty fishless Japanese sea vegetables & nori cakes for a great starter or light lunch.
Finally, who said the trends have to be weird and wonderful? We are thrilled to see good old sprinkles are making a come back, if they ever left? Fellow sprinkle lover My Fussy Eater, makes an awesome sprinkle swiss roll.
Are you excited about this year’s food trends? Will you be making any recipes using the ingredients or do you prefer to try them in restaurants?
