Pickles and Ferments

Pickles and Ferments Yes, this doesn’t sound too appetizing. The healthy food movement is definitely going to carry on with this trend, though. Pickling and fermenting are both ancient methods of food preparation, and they are coming back with a bang. Think sauerkraut, kimchee, miso, probiotic yogurt, kombucha… they’re all packed with good bacteria that will boost your digestive system, and they have that intense flavor that everyone is loving at the moment.

Pickles and ferments are one of the most popular trends in the healthy food movement this year. Pickling and fermenting are ancient methods of food preparation that have been around for centuries. Pickling and fermenting foods not only adds an intense flavor, but also preserves the food and adds beneficial bacteria to the digestive system.

Sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, probiotic yogurt, and kombucha are all examples of pickled and fermented foods that are becoming increasingly popular. Sauerkraut is a type of pickled cabbage that is usually made with salt and spices. Kimchi is a type of pickled and fermented vegetable dish that is made with a variety of vegetables and spices. Miso is a type of fermented soybean paste that is commonly used in Japanese cuisine. Probiotic yogurt is a type of yogurt that is made with live cultures of beneficial bacteria. Kombucha is a type of fermented tea that is made with a combination of tea, sugar, and a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast).

Savory Yogurt

Savory Yogurt Yogurts are going savory. Don’t expect to see any less of the classic varieties, such as honey, but they’ll soon be joined by savory flavors such as parsnip, tomato, carrot, sweet potato, butternut squash… They might not immediately grab your taste buds in the same way that a sweet yogurt would, but they are healthy and you will get used to them! They’re a great thing to use in cooking, too. I've been knocking up my own, and they've become a kitchen essential - definitely try thyme!

3

Toast

Toast Everyone has been eating garlic sourdough toast for the past few weeks, so it’s no surprise that the trend is going further! Expect wild mushrooms, artichokes, egg, sourdough….toast is no longer a side, it’s a whole meal. See what inventive recipes you can come up with, and expect to see it on menus too!

4

Gyros

Gyros If you live in a diner state, you might already have tried Gyros. It’s a Greek dish which consists of spit-roasted meat, served in a pitta bread with tomato, onion and tzatziki sauce. The meat is always moist and crisp, and it’s a delicious snack! Definitely one to try.

5

Marijuana

Marijuana Yep, this one is controversial. It’s not pot brownies, though! Marijuana edibles have started to pop up in recipes at high-end restaurants, and it’s expected to spread across the country. Think spaghetti with pesto containing marijuana, for example, or chicken and pasta dishes.

6

Rabbit

Rabbit Rabbit is expected to be THE white meat of 2015. Why? Well, it’s relatively easily accessible, so it’s pretty cheap. It’s also succulent and tasty. It won’t just be rabbit stew, either. Think stuffed rabbit, confited, braised…Yummy. Definitely dig out some rabbit recipes, and give cooking some a try. It’ll make you feel like a master chef!

7

Coconut Sugar

Coconut Sugar Coconut sugar will be the next mainstream replacement for cane sugar. It’s debatable whether coconut sugar is actually any healthier than it’s regular alternative, but it retains many of the health benefits of coconuts, and it has a delicious flavor. Give it a try for desserts, if nothing else.

I kept beef tongue out of this – bleurgh! Cow tongue has been huge in Japan, and it’s thought that the trend might carry on with the more adventurous eaters over here. Think stews, salads, soups…all with cow tongue. Like everything here, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it, I suppose! Which food trends are you most looking forward to?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Rabbits are not to eat! They are to be cuddled! ...

I grew up with beef tongue frequently in our fridge. My mom grew up on a farm and loved it.

Cow tongue is actually pretty common in Mexico, I eat "tacos de lengua"(cow beef tacos) for breakfast almost every sunday with my family.

I can't eat rabbit it's too cute to eat :/ ... I have a bunny named mr whiskers (my 4 year old sister named him).

Sigh I can't eat rabbit, tried it a few times but it does not go well with me :/

Noo, not the buns! Can you imagine a farm of bunnies that were all just waiting to die? 😥

We eat lengua too! Sooo good! Also, rabbit is fantastic. The whole rabbit is white meat like chicken breast, and more tangy!

Cow tongue and lamb tongue are very popular in Lebanon and the Arab world (fatteh)yummy👍pickles,yogurt(like greek yogurt) are basic in our kitchen

Super interesting

I tied rabbit once but it seemed too tough for me. However I love cow tongue with garlic! Can you get high off of eating marijuana in your pasta????
