Love it or loathe it, you can’t deny that TikTok is making waves around the world for its snappy videos, hilarious and heartwarming in equal measure. Gas clips of dogs singing aren’t the only things emerging from the app though, it’s also the birthplace of current food trends too.

After a year spent indoors, we’ve road-tested them all, from the good, the bad, to the downright stupid, *coughs* pancake cereal. Now, we present to you the recipes that are actually worth giving a go.

You will need: 

  • Pasta (any shape, but bowtie is the OG)
  • 1 block of feta cheese
  • 2 boxes of cherry tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1 handful of fresh basil leaves
  • Salt, pepper and chilli flakes to flavour


  • Add tomatoes, olive oil, salt, and pepper to a baking dish and toss
  • Place the block of feta in the middle of the dish, adding a dash of oil and chilli flakes on top to flavour
  • Place the tray into a preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes on gas mark 6
  • Meanwhile, prepare the pasta, cooking it al dente and reserving some pasta water when ready
  • After 30 minutes, increase the oven’s temperature to gas mark 7 and bake until browned for 5-10 minutes
  • Remove tray from oven and stir in crushed garlic and fresh basil
  • Next, add in the cooked, strained pasta and mix together
  • If the sauce is dry, slowly add in spoons of the leftover pasta water. Season with salt and pepper to taste

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup of oats

  • 1 egg
  • 0.75 tsp of baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Topping of choice


  • Create your batter by blending together the oats, banana, egg, honey, baking powder and salt in a blender. Mix until smooth
  • Then, pour the batter in a greased baking dish and top it with a topping of your choice. Berries and white chocolate seem to be TikTok’s topping of choice. You could also substitute for dark chocolate, apple or banana
  • Cook the mix for 20 minutes on gas mark 4
  • Serve with extra berries or powdered sugar
