For plant-based eaters and carnivores trying to eat less meat, this recipe is for you. Carrot bacon is a wonderful way to get your veggies in as well as satisfying your bacon needs. It’s easy and packed full of wonderful spices. You can even add maple syrup as a natural sweetener (pure is the best), so really, what is there not to love about this recipe?
Rice Paper Bacon
Carrot haters, we know you’re out there. This vegan bacon made from rice paper has real-deal crunchiness. The coconut and olive oil also give off a pleasant aroma and taste that adds extra oomph to the final product.
Tortilla Wrap Hack
If you love a good meat-packed quesadilla or Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme, this tortilla wrap hack is just what you need. Basically, you can add whatever protein, greens, and cheese you like, and just fold and press in a panini press. Voilà — you get yourself a drool-inducing wrap.
Baked Mac & Cheese
Mac and cheese couldn’t get any easier than this. It really is a one-pan wonder where you can just throw everything in, and just wait for the oven to call you.
Baked feta pasta
Another baked pasta dish that really went viral is this baked feta pasta. So if you’re a feta fanatic and pasta lover, this recipe should be your move. It’s a breeze to whip up but to your guests, it looks like you spent quite some time making it.
Gigi Hadid’s Spicy Vodka Pasta
Gigi Hadid is now the pasta queen on social media. Her spicy vodka-spiked pasta is sworn by many Instagrammers to be the best pasta dish. It seems like the only way to find out if this is true is to make it. Happy cooking!
