Food videos are extremely popular on TikTok. Here are some of the best recipes that have gone viral on TikTok.

Pesto Eggs

Viral Pesto Eggs Recipe

If you’re looking to spice up your morning with a new breakfast dish, look no further than this video from TikTok user @amywilichowski. Pesto eggs are as simple as it sounds, just pesto and eggs. To make this dish, all you have to do is replace the oil that you normally cook your eggs in with pesto. The eggs will cook directly in the pesto, taking on the flavor and they won’t stick to the pan because of the oil in the pesto. You can cook your eggs any way you like! For more details and step-by-step instructions on how to make this, refer to the video linked above.

Green Goddess Salad

The Viral “Green Goddess Salad” – Baked by Melissa

Just like the viral Baked Feta Pasta that took the internet by storm in early 2021, the Green Goddess Salad by TikTok creator @bakedbymelissa became a viral sensation on TikTok in late 2021. The original video has over 22.6 Million views on TikTok and has inspired millions of re-creations. The tag #GreenGoddessSalad has gained over 47 million views on TikTok with people sharing their own versions of the salad. 

After the original recipe went viral, @bakedbymelissa continued to share ways in which the salad could be enjoyed. This included putting it on toast or eating it straight from the bowl with tortilla chips. Many people who decided to try the salad for themselves opted to try it with tortilla chips as a dip.


If you haven’t tried it already, here’s what you’ll need to make this viral TikTok recipe for yourself:

  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Small Shallot
  • Juice of 2 Lemons
  • 1 Bunch of Chives
  • ¼ Cup Olive Oil
  • Space of Rice Vinegar
  • Walnuts or Cashews
  • Handful of Basil
  • Handful of Spinach
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 Cabbage
  • 2-3 Cucumbers


  • For the dressing, add the 2 cloves of garlic, shallot, lemon juice, half of the bunch of chives, ¼ cup of olive oil, rice vinegar, nuts, all of the basil and spinach, nutritional yeast, and salt to a blender and blend until smooth. Salt to taste.
  • For the salad, finely dice the head of cabbage, cucumbers, and the remaining chives. The key to this salad is dicing the vegetables very finely. 
  • Add all of the diced vegetables to a large bowl with the dressing. Mixed until thoroughly combined.
  • Enjoy it as a salad or as a dip with chips!

The best part about this recipe is that it is easy to make and is open to interpretation! Some people who have tried the salad have recommended adding a jalapeno pepper, avocado, or feta cheese.
