Though I’m sure we can all attest to Tik Tok being a leading factor in procrastination, it definitely boasts some educational purposes. From professional chefs, to culinary enthusiasts, to students sharing uni hacks, Food Tik Tok is a platform for everyone to post and learn. These three recipes are some of the ones I have tried, and absolutely loved.
Tortilla Wrap Hack
The hearty tortilla wrap is the perfect satiating and versatile carb. This recipe is easily customisable to work as a breakfast, lunch, tea, or pudding.
Equipment and Ingredients
Sandwich grill/frying pan and sauce pan
Desired fillings – Tik Tok has plenty of ideas if you need some inspiration
Lay a plain wrap onto a plate, and make a slit from the bottom to the centre.
Segregate your ingredients into four equal quarters, squashing down any larger items. I went for hash browns, lettuce, chicken, chilli halloumi and sriracha mayo. Whether you are making a sweet or savoury wrap, the sauce/spread is best placed in the final quarter, to stick the folds together.
Fold the bottom left quarter up to the top, then fold that section over to the right and finally, down to the bottom.
If you have a sandwich grill such as this, simply grill for around 2 minutes until lightly golden and warmed through. If you don’t, fear not. Heat a frying pan over a low to medium flame, place in your folded wrap and squash it down with a heavy saucepan. Flip and repeat after around 2 minutes, or until golden brown, slice in half, and serve.
Though this recipe is more time-consuming, it is definitely worth it for all the garlic fanatics among us. Garlic confit makes the perfect snack and can be spread on a variety of toasts, crackers and breads. The jar lasts for around a month, and the oil can be used for cooking afterwards.
Peel the cloves from around 1 and a half bulbs of garlic (add more or less depending on the size of your jar). I find this easiest by squashing the bulb with my hand, then squishing each clove under a knife and easing the skin away.
Add vegetable oil until just covered.
Place in the oven uncovered for 3 hours at 90 degrees celsius, 70 degrees celsius for fan ovens.
After 3 hours leave to cool slightly and transfer to your jar.
Spread onto whatever you please and enjoy.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard of the famous feta pasta. This creamy, indulgent delight is still accessible with an aldi budget, and fills your kitchen with an aroma your housemates will love you for. Try it alone or with garlic bread.
