Vegan dishes and meat alternatives
More and more of us are going meatless. Whether we're committed vegans, vegetarians or flexitarians and only eat meat on occasion, we've got more plant-based meal options than ever. The Netherlands' team thinks faux meat and meat alternatives – like jackfruit to replace pulled pork or seitan as a swap for chicken – will get even bigger in 2018, and they're not the only Deliveroo market that sees meat-free meals going mainstream.
The UK and Ireland also predict vegan food to be huge this year. But because vegans and non-meat eaters deserve more than just rabbit food, there's been a massive rise in fake steaks and plant-based patties. Innovators like the Impossible Burger from across the pond have been using a meat-free ingredient called heme to give faux beef that juicy texture that carnivores crave. So if you're looking to scale down your meat intake and don't want to get stuck with salads, keep a lookout for these tasty alternatives this year.
Every year we seem to rediscover an ingredient as a superfood. And for 2018, our teammates in Germany think we'll be unlocking the potential of home-grown superfoods like huckleberries, rose hips, cabbages and radishes to give us an extra boost.
