6. Baked cheese bars
These are like a bar-shaped, neatly packaged version of the baked Italian cheese crisps called frico — but made with aged cheddar in this case. They are a low-carb dieter’s dream: You don’t need cheese and crackers when the cheese and crackers are in effect one and the same.
7. Broccoli pizza crust
Cauliflower pizza crust is old news these days, but now cauliflower’s cousin broccoli is getting into the act. Does broccoli pizza crust taste okay? Sure, with enough good things on top. Is it as good as a traditional crust? Maybe not, but it’s much better for you.
After you’ve had a few broccoli-crust pizzas, treat yourself to this extravagant cheese-filled bread from Georgia — the one in Central Asia. You’ll probably have to find a Georgian restaurant if you want to sample this cheesy treat (which is sometimes enriched with a fried egg), but you’ll be glad you did.
Jackfruit is a nutrition-packed tropical fruit from Southeast Asia with a dense, fibrous texture being promoted as a great meat alternative for vegans and vegetarians. Some think it tastes like pulled pork when cooked. It’s now widely available in various forms, online, at health food stores, and at specialty markets like Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s.
Ube (ooo-beh) is a purple yam, popular in the Philippines, that is showing up as an ice cream flavor (some liken its flavor to that of green tea ice cream) and in other forms of dessert. It has a mildly earthy flavor, and trend-spotters think it has a promising future.
