For me the most exciting thing at the start of a new year is the possibility to cook a whole series of new recipes. I am always pretty exhausted and unimaginable after the holidays, so I go to Pinterest to see what the others are planning to do. This year, just like every year, Pinterest users pick great things and are completely inspired. Recipes with oxtail, food with foil and homemade jams are just some of the delicious recipes that have been trending lately, and I fully understand why. If you need a bit of inspiration yourself, read on for everything that is going to be big with home cooks this year, according to Pinterest's.
1. Homemade bread
Although making homemade bread may sound ambitious, it is actually quite easy for beginners with the right recipe. Pinterest users clearly stand out because searches for home-baked bread have risen (puns very much intended) more than 400 percent since the new year. If you want to try the trend, this basic recipe is pinned more than 100,000 times and it's a great place to start. Receive the recipe here.
2. Mushroom recipes
Mushrooms have certainly been popular for a long time, but now people are starting to use them in new and exciting ways. For example, coffees and chocolate bars with mushrooms receive a lot of attention. If you prefer to keep it classic, but still want the mushroom trend, this stir-fry chicken with broccoli and mushrooms is infallible. Receive the recipe here.
3. Pasture tables
Snackers, rejoice! Burial tables are one of the newest food trends that Pinterest makes through storms, and they are basically just tables filled with snacks. They are great for parties because they do not require a real cooking experience, they feed a crowd, and they are absolutely beautiful – not to mention fun to put together.
4. Ginger water
If lemon water is too acidic for your taste, consider ginger water. Pinterest users love this simple brew, perhaps because ginger is a well-known stomach pacifier, or maybe because it tastes great. Whatever the reason, it is not harmful to add a few slices of stuff to your next glass of H2O if you want.
5. Oxtail recipes
Oxtail is a mainstay in many cuisines around the world. In 2019, searches for oxtail recipes have apparently increased by more than 200 percent. In recent times, Pinterest users have mostly kept oxtail recipes, such as this slow bean bean dish, which has been pinned more than 30,000 times. Receive the recipe here.
6. Dinner with food packaging
Diners with foil packages are not very messy, low-maintenance and extremely tasty, so it's no surprise that they are finally becoming more popular. With 100,000 pennies, this sausage, potato and green bean foil package is one of Pinterest's favorites. Receive the recipe here.
7. Homemade jam
It's no secret that I like jams in all my meals, so I'm happy to see that others jump aboard the jetset. Even if you prefer to keep your jam usage traditionally, it is a super fun project for home cooks of all levels. Here you will find a basic guide to making paper jams.
8. Oat milk
In case you have not heard it yet, oat milk is everyone's new favorite alternative milk. And it is super easy to make yourself. View a simple explanation here.
9. Chayote recipes
Chayote is a type of fruit that has a texture like squash or potatoes, which means it is great to cook in savory dishes. It is native to Central America and is used in Asia and Central and South America. Pinterest users have fallen in love with recipes such as sautéed chayote and potatoes with mint and shallots.
