If you have yet to discover Tiktok, you are sorely missing out on hours of laughs, fantastic advice, life hacks, satisfying video compilations and the most incredible recipes you could possibly imagine.
In fact, Tiktok is particularly wonderful because of just how helpful many of the videos are in real life. From helping you to change the way you have always been doing things to inspiring you to get organised, Tiktok is really everything you could possibly want in a social media app.
One thing we have been really obsessed with doing, especially as we stay home more under the new Phase 2 Heightened Alert, is to try out various food trends from Tiktok. Particularly, we've been enjoying trying vegan recipes as the world slowly moves towards attempting to consume less meat for our own health as well as for the sustainability of our environment.
In fact, you can find a plant-based substitute for just about everything on Tiktok where food-lovers are getting more and more creative.
If you want to get in on the action, keep reading to find out all about Tiktok's latest vegan food trends and how you can try them out for yourself at home.
1. Vegan Chicken
Did you know that you can actually make 'chicken' out of just flour and water? When this recipe was put up on Tiktok by @futurelettuce, it absolutely blew up because no one could believe that it was possible.
However, using flour and water to make 'chicken' has been something that has been around for ages. It is traditionally called seitan and you make it by 'washing out' the starch in the flour to leave you with gluten. This is where your protein comes from.
To make this, start by kneading all-purpose flour and water together to form a dough. Let this dough rest for an hour. Then, put the dough in a bowl of water and begin kneading it underwater.
Once you have washed your dough enough, season it with whatever seasoning you would like. We highly recommend trying salt, pepper, garlic and paprika for the best flavours. Let it rest for another hour and your 'chicken' is ready to be eaten.
You can shred it to make shredded 'chicken', slice it up into a taco or tortilla wrap or even toss it into a stir fry. The possibilities are really endless with this recipe and the best part is that it still tastes really good.
