What did we all do for food inspiration before Pinterest? The social networking site is an absolute goldmine for foodies — offering everything from cooking and meal prep tips to delicious poke bowl recipes. 
Pinterest also tends to be way ahead of the times when it comes to trends. So, what better to determine which food and drink trends are going to be hot in 2018 than by analysing Pinterest data? That’s exactly what online electrical retailer AO.com have done, rounding up the most saved pins of 2017 to predict which trends are going to take the food world by storm.

Health-boosted coffee

The perfect Sunday recipe to get shit done ?

It seems that our daily cup-of-joe is about to get a serious health boost. Pins for healthier versions of coffee were up by 218% in 2017! This year, opting for cow’s milk alternatives or adding wellness supplements like collagen, turmeric or beetroot powder to your brew is set to be all the rage.

Snap peas


I would argue that snap peas are the most underrated vegetable, and it seems I’m not the only one — as they had a massive increase in pins last year. Not only do they pack a serious nutritional punch (they’re a good source of fibre and vitamin C), they’re super versatile and can even be eaten raw.

Morrocan cuisine


Pinterest users went nuts over Moroccan food last year, with a 2579% increase in pins by the end of the year! And with its vibrant colour and flavour and health-boosting spices, it’s not hard to see why. We also love the fact that many Moroccan dishes are slow-cooked — less time in the kitchen is always a win for us!

Clean cocktails


Happy hour is set to get a health makeover this year, with saves of clean cocktails on the rise by 160%. Think mojitos made with natural sugar alternatives like coconut sugar, adding fresh fruits and herbs and supplementing sugary mixers with coconut water to counteract dehydration. Check out some of our favourite guilt-free cocktail recipes.

Air frying


Thanks to the wonders of Pinterest, home chefs have been getting more creative with their air fryer recipes — using the gadget to cook everything from roast potatoes to meat, fish and even cake!

Soup

LEMONGRASS BROTH WITH TOFU AND RICE NOODLES : We made this one the other day from a craving for a warm yet light meal and it hit the spot! Most of the ingredients were on hand too, which sometimes is the trip-up with asian inspired recipes. A recipe calls for heaps of ingredients you don’t usually have on hand and perhaps won’t use again for a while so they kind of go to waste? Not in this one though! #YEW ✊️ We’ve substituted ingredients like kaffir lime and used whole limes, and tamari in place of fish sauce to make it super easy for you. I've popped this recipe up on the blog just now – enjoy! JA ?#plantbased (ps. Best served with booch ✌[email protected] )

Proving that soup doesn’t have to be boring, pins of the simple, nourishing dish were up by 306% last year. Perhaps the spike can be explained by the increased popularity of batch cooking and meal prep?

Korean food


Not only are Korean trends huge in the beauty world, but they’re going to change the way we eat, too! Korean food has soared in popularity, with a 222% increase in saves on Pinterest. The East Asian cuisine is all about simple yet bold flavours. Pickling and fermentation are huge, too — but this year, we’ll be looking beyond just kimchi and experimenting with condiments like soybean paste, fermented shrimp and anchovy sauce.
