TikTok has become the go-to app when we want to be taken down a rabbit hole of short dance videos and comedy skits. However, it’s quickly expanding its reputation by also featuring some of the most creative food hacks in the kitchen! Gone are the days of poring over cookbooks and recipe websites, because TikTok has all you need when it comes to producing your next culinary masterpiece. Here are some of the best hacks that TikTok has unveiled so far in 2021.
Baked Feta Pasta
What would 2021 be without the baked feta pasta? When the recipe first started going viral it actually caused some stores in the United States to completely sell out of feta cheese. Hitting the interwebs at the beginning of 2021, this phenomenon involved fans baking a whole block of feta with tomatoes, garlic and herbs, then adding cooked pasta and mixing it all together. What more could you want?
A wrap going viral in 2021? Are we surprised? No, we are not! Home to the tastiest food hacks on the internet, TikTok grabbed one of the most mundane meals going around and seriously spiced it up. This new technique had watchers cut their wrap halfway down the middle and divide the ingredients into four sections. Then you simply fold the wrap into a triangle and enjoy!
If you’ve been trawling the TikTok TL recently, you have probably seen that Matcha is having a moment, and it’s easy to see why. With its ultra-green colour and fluffy texture, the ancient Asian tea looks very aesthetic. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the Starbucks order of an iced matcha latte with two pumps of chai has become the latest go-to trendy drink.
What do you get when you combine pasta, vodka and supermodel Gigi Hadid? A viral TikTok sensation, that’s what! Towards the end of 2020, Hadid attempted to make a spicy pasta with the unlikely twist of vodka. While it was quite easy to make, the recipe went absolutely bonkers online, with seemingly everyone keenly stirring the pot with a little dash of alcohol.
Seitan (Vegan Chicken)
While most of these TikTok hacks have been so tasty that literally everyone would have their mouths watering, this one has left the TikTok space divided. The recipe is simple: use flour and water to create a bread-like dough, and then fry it as if you’re cooking chicken. Perfect for vegans and vegetarians, some may not realise that it is actually a form of Seitan, an Asian recipe of using wheat as a protein substitute. However, trawling through the comments section revealed that it wasn’t for everyone, with some onlookers not vibing with the recipe. And that’s putting it lightly!
