12 Black Food Bloggers That Will Up Your Cooking Game

Raise your hand if you’re tired of repeating the same recipes, again and again when it comes to mealtime. Yes, my hand is raised too. Now that many of us are staying in more and cooking more frequently, we’re having to get really creative with our recipes choices. Sometimes getting creative means a bowl of cereal on those really tiring days (or any day you darn well want to, honestly!) or adding a new recipe to your dinner rotation.

One of my favorite ways to get new meal inspiration is by learning about new food bloggers. Sure, I have my go-to bloggers that always have my favorite recipes to lean on when I need or want them, but meal fatigue is a real thing. If you’re tired of cooking the same recipes and you’re ready to try something new from someone new, I’ve rounded up 12 Black food bloggers that have recipes you’ll be dying to try—check our their blogs and Instagram accounts below.

So here’s the real deal.

There are only two vegetables that I don't like. The first is eggplant 🍆. The second is mushrooms 🍄 ⠀ —-⠀ Because of this, when @BarillaUS asked us to create a Carbonara pasta recipe in celebration of #CarbonaraDay today, I had to put my creative cap on… tight. #ad Why? Carbonara is an Italian pasta dish from Rome made with egg, hard cheese and bacon. The problem is that most vegetarian Carbonara dishes replace the bacon with mushrooms. ⠀ —-⠀ So….what does a mushroom-hating vegetarian girl like me do in lieu of bacon and mushrooms? ASPARAGUS. Duh. Today we present this Vegetarian Carbonara Pasta w/ Roasted Asparagus using Barilla Collezione Bucatini (which btw Bucatini is my NEW FAV PASTA). 🍝 Click the link in bio to make this recipe TODAY! OR take the #CarbonaraChallenge and share your favorite version of the dish with us on social 📸. P.S. Is there any veggie you can’t get into no matter HOW hard you try?!

Hey Happy Tuesday!⁣ ⁣ Did you get some rest over the weekend? I did. I don’t remember much about it, but there were plenty of naps. I’m back to work and trying to get caught up. ⁣ ⁣ And I want to know. How do you like your watermelon? 🍉Plain? With salt?⁣ ⁣ I usually just eat it cold and plain. But when it’s really good and available everywhere, I often buy too much and eat it several times a day… like in this Arugula, Watermelon and Feta Salad.⁣ ⁣ I added a little balsamic vinaigrette to the mix but it’s mostly just those three. Every try it? What’s your favorite combo?⁣ ⁣ Click the link in my profile @marisamoore for this recipe ⁣⁣or Google “Marisa Moore Watermelon Feta Salad ”⁣ ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ . ⁣ #watermelon #foodforfuel  #eatyourcolors  #foodphotography #saladrecipe #healthylunchideas #healthylunches #inseasonnow #plantbasedpower #thenewhealthy #essenceeats #thefeedfeed #blackfoodbloggers

✨NEW RECIPE✨⁣ ⁣ Happy Friday everyone ⭐️ This week, I finally managed to find time to upload my famous Creamy Pickle Cashew Dressing on my blog! The recipe had been waiting around in my notes for ages now (for more than a month to be precise 😬), but I made sure to put it as a priority this week because I really want you guys to try it out!⁣ ⁣ What is awesome about this dressing is not only can you enjoy it as a vinaigrette on salads 🥗 but it is also D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S as a cashew-based mayo in a sandwich 🥪 on your loaded sweet potato fries like in the photo above or as a dip for your favourite roasted veggies (you MUST try it! with garlic roasted potatoes 🤤). ⁣ ⁣ With only 9 ingredients, this one is incredibly easy to whip up & I promise, you will not be disappointed 😉⁣ ⁣ Find the recipe on my blog, which is linked in my profile or below 👇🏽⁣ https://www.muriellebanackissa.com/blog/creamy-pickle-cashew-dressing
