12 Viral TikTok Recipes From 2021 That Were Actually Good – Yahoo News
After a full year spent witnessing a slew of recipes go viral on social media giant TikTok, we’ve come to the conclusion that — although some, like the baked feta pasta, are far from delicious — many are deserving of the attention they’ve been getting online.
While these recipes took off on TikTok, they found their way to Instagram, YouTube and our general consciousness. Below, we honor these dishes ― the foods we made at home that tasted just as good as they looked through our screens.
1. The tortilla that is really a quesadilla
At the beginning of the year, @crystalscookingfun posted a video on TikTok in which she took a round flour tortilla, cut a slit along its radius and placed a different ingredient into each of its quadrants. She then folded the food clockwise and griddled the concoction in a panini press. Thus, the tortilla-that-is-really-a-quesadilla was born and followers began experimenting with a variety of ingredients to include in the dish (like the one above). From breakfast tortillas to savory versions, the food was prepared in hundreds of different ways on camera.
2. Gigi Hadid’s spicy vodka pasta
We are reluctant to include any sort of pasta dish on this list since, although preparation is considered simple by many, it is actually incredibly hard to properly cook the Italian staple. But this recipe made famous by model Gigi Hadid ― prepared with butter, Parmesan cheese, heavy cream, shallots and vodka ― actually deserves the hype.
3. Nature’s cereal
This one’s pretty easy to follow: Throw some berries in a bowl, add some coconut water and a cube of ice and ― voila! ― you’ve made yourself the cleverly dubbed “nature’s cereal.” We are convinced that this particular recipe made the rounds given its simplicity, which is totally fine by us because how much time can you realistically spend in the kitchen to make yourself breakfast? Bonus points: Even Lizzo swears by it!
4. Corn ribs
You’re likely to have all the ingredients for this recipe at home already, which makes it that much more enticing. Basically a seasoned ear of corn cut into ribs, this easy peasy dish works wonderfully on its own or as a side dish to your protein. Either way, we fully agree with its status as a viral hit.
5. Accordion potatoes
