If you're a foodie scrolling through social media, you're sure to find plenty of restaurant recommendations, perfectly laid-out plates, and lots of recipe ideas. For the past few years, creators on TikTok have been trying out all sorts of food trends. In 2020, you may have seen videos of whipped coffee on your For You page, and some TikTok hacks might change the way you've made food your whole life, like this hack for making mashed potatoes.

Top10 Meal Delivery rounded up the top 10 TikTok food trends — in order, the list includes cloud bread, whipped/dalgona coffee, pancake cereal, feta pasta, nature's cereal, ice cream cake, baked oats, hot chocolate bombs, fufu, and birria tacos. 

Even if you haven't been on TikTok, there's a chance you've stumbled upon one of these recipes, but have you spotted the similarity between the most popular dishes on social media app?

The top TikTok food trends are all vegetarian

Top10 Meal Delivery points out that out of the top 10 TikTok food trends, there's only one that includes meat, which is birria tacos. For those with a sweet tooth, the rest of the vegetarian-friendly recipes are worth checking out; the list includes pancake cereal, ice cream cake, and hot chocolate bombs.

These TikTok food trends can also be vegan-friendly. For example, Lizzo often posts TikToks of her vegan recipes, and the musical artist reviewed "nature's cereal," which is a variety of fruits like pomegranate seeds and berries in coconut water. By using vegan feta, the feta pasta recipe with roasted tomatoes and plenty of olive oil is also free of any meat or animal products.

Of course, there are still plenty of trends and hacks that are missing from this list, and the 13 biggest TikTok recipes in 2021 include snacks such as air fryer pasta chips and quick breakfasts such as pesto eggs. TikTok has no shortage of vegetarian and vegan-friendly recipes that even omnivores will love.
