Take a trip around the world – without leaving your kitchen! These craveable recipes are inspired by some of our favorite global street foods. From a homemade falafel to the Eastern European cheesy bread you need in your life, these recipes are going GLOBAL. You can leave your passport behind, but you WILL need your appetite!
Ever wanted to try making your own naan? Well, here’s your chance. This recipe from Half Baked Harvest is not as intimidating as it seems – the fresh naan comes together in 30 minutes, and a food processor will do most of the work for you when making homemade falafel. This epic wrap will remind you of the version from your favorite halal cart, but so much fresher.
Banh mi is a Vietnamese sandwich filled with griddled savory meat, crunchy fresh vegetables and spicy Sriracha mayo. This recipe from Bakers Royale takes the classic and makes it accessible and doable at home. Don’t overlook the bread here – you want a demi baguette that is crusty on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.
Almost every East Asian culture has its own version of “satay.” This Thai-inspired version from Recipe in Eats is turned into a full meal with slightly-sweet steamed coconut rice and a killer peanut sauce that you will make again and again.
If you haven’t heard of khachapuri, get ready to meet your new favorite food. This Georgian pastry is a pillowy dough (similar to pizza dough) filled with cheese and sometimes topped with an over-easy egg. We are craving this version from Food52 that is brightened up with a mix of fresh herbs and scallions. It’s worth it to make your own dough here, but in a pinch you can use store-bought pizza dough.
Recreate your favorite street tacos in your own kitchen with this recipe from Damn Delicious! For the best flavor for your carne asada, leave at least 4 hours for your steak to marinate in the fridge.
