Vegetables never really died out, but with so many new styles and ingredients emerging as trending foods, most people put the greens on the back burner. However, as soon as 2016 kicked off vegetable dishes came into the picture. Serving vegetable based meals (which includes raw veggies too) is now a huge industry. Restaurants and smaller eating establishments are now focusing on veggie meals now than ever. Some even consider it a niche, dedicating their entire menus to vegetarian and vegan meals.

Seaweed Feeds

Yes, the first three top trending foods are all veggie-inclined. Seaweeds were not very popular in western culture in the early 2000s. Now, it’s becoming one of the most sought ingredients in restaurants across the world. Packed with nutrients, and considered a “super food”, seaweed offers a great option even if you don’t like the taste. It’ so versatile, you can lose the flavour in many dishes while keeping the nutrients. Great news for healthy-eating advocates.

The vegan movement is not as old as the veggie train, but it’s definitely coming in as a strong second. Certain areas of the world, like Southeast Asia, are becoming vegan meccas as their cooking rarely includes animal-based products. The key difference between vegans and vegetarians is that vegans don’t consume animal products. There are several reasons vegans don’t eat animal products, and it’s becoming more and more frequent in bigger cities like London.

Soup Galore

Soup has always been a popular starter, but now it’s taking the main course spot more than ever before. With a variety of new tools to liquify more ingredients, soups are now available in all sizes, tastes and colors. 2016 seems to be the soup’s year, as fusion cuisine and other specialty restaurants are now offering soups with any ingredient you like.

The mediterranean diet took the spotlight in the mid 1990s because of it’s healthy meal preparation. It’s still very popular, especially in Europe and the United States, but it seems to be a trend that’s slowly dying off.
