“The most loved Arabic dish, but with Indian flavors.”
And with that, I was immediately intrigued. It also helps that the first visual is a vibrant beauty shot of some wild fusion food fun: Tandoori Shawarma. This masterpiece from chefjassim unites Lebanese shawarma with bold Indian tandoori flavors for a recipe that handholds the viewer through some compelling innovation. It also includes a quick how-to on making some fire tahini sauce.
The end result? A stunning Chicken Tandoori Shawarma Sandwich that made me want to pounce on my phone mouth first.
In the latest Foodbeast Recipe Challenge, we curated five awesome recipes from five talented kitchen creators that incorporate the red, white, and blue tubers in the coolest ways possible. Here’s the tasty lineup:
Rudy’s (@rudeluv) Loaded Baked Potato Salad
This recipe from Foodbeast Rudy stocks up on sour cream, chives, bacon bits, and some crucial melted cheese on top of Red, White and Blue Potatoes!
Costa crossed continents with his unique recipe that incorporates Red, White and Blue potatoes, Sichuan pepper, five spice, braised pork belly and pickled mustard greens. The tasty scenario is then wrapped in bean curd sheets and deep-fried.
This vegan salad is so easy and flavorful, featuring a refreshing dressing of shallots, garlic, mustard, olive oil, lime juice, and turmeric beautifully topped over spinach, Red, White and Blue potatoes, corn, vegan cheese, and chopped parsley.
This never-before-seen wedge salad replaces the lettuce wedge with a variation of a Pommes Anna. The delicious wedge of Red, White and Blue potatoes is topped with ranch, bacon, anchovy breadcrumbs, and chives.
“Lemonade is a popular drink and it still is,” wise and immortal words from the late rapper Guru. And with lemonade being my favorite beverage of all time, I agree wholeheartedly. You know what further solidifies that lyric? The new ‘whipped lemonade’ TikTok recipe trend.
Remember Dalgona Coffee of 2020? Well this new whipped lemonade craze carries that same energy, only with more refreshment and plenty of citrusy bite. So think of it as a liquid lemon creamsicle. Yup.
There’s plenty of different recipes out there on TikTok, but here’s a selection of the ones we co-sign:
The quintessential sugar rush for breakfast has mostly been represented by the cereal aisle, with an occasional stand-in by French toast. But pancakes are a distant third in consideration. However, these OREO-stuffed mini pancakes from @fitwaffle are ready to step to the forefront.
This recipe above for the cute, snackable breakfast treats looks very simple, so hopping outta bed to turn your swag on via a rush of sugar looks to be a quick process, friends.
Imagine popping these tasty minis on the go and starting your day with a sweet disposition. It’s a vision that’s delightful enough for anyone to wanna make these pancakes ASAP.
Another day, another TikTok food trend. This time it’s the Air Fryer pasta chips hack that’s got folks throwing their cooked pasta in those magical machines to turn them into snackable chips.
Josh Elkin, ever the wizard in the kitchen, decided to one up the simpler recipes out right now by throwing a Doritos slant on this trend. Watch the clip above for some snack action that’s got me thinking, “Why didn’t I try that oh that’s right I’m not Josh Elkin.”
Fried. Tomahawk. Steak. The concept alone has my brow forming beady droplets of meat sweats; my whole face glistening like the perfectly medium rare cut that food content creator Ninjacue reveals to the camera after slicing into his freshly deep-fried masterpiece.
The blueprint to this colossal cache of crisp lies in a simple coating of mayo and pork panko crumbs over the tomahawk steak. What results is a meat lover’s totem, calling all carnivores to this feast.
From the Undisputed Breakfast Champ himself, Josh Elkin has created another madcap breakfast creation with Breakfast Pop Tarts. Taking the same energy of everyone’s favorite on-the-go childhood breakfast, Mr. Never Skip Egg Day just created a version that’s delightfully occupied by bacon, sausage, egg, and cheese.
Thankfully Elkin’s recipes are easy to make so we all can treat ourselves to this glorious innovation. This Breakfast Pop Tart is another impressive notch in Josh Elkin’s breakfast championship belt, as his lineup of crave-inducing recipes have clearly proven that he just might treat the egg better than a mother hen herself.
“I’m looking at this chorizo avocado toast and I’m highly concerned”
Those were the opening words that celebrity chef and MasterChef judge, Aaron Sanchez, had in regards to Gordon Ramsay’s recipe video for Chorizo Avocado Toast. For a chef that’s an expert in Mexican cuisine to come at you like that off the rip truly means you’ve screwed up.
“You put lemon juice on top of avocado. That never happens. It should always be lime. You know better than that,” Sanchez admonished.
Chef Sanchez does sign off from his good-natured roast with, “I love you, bye boss,” just so we get it clear that there won’t be a future knife fight between Sanchez and Ramsay on the MasterChef set.
