There's never been a better time to find inspiration for weeknight cooking than right now, with so many decadent cooking initiatives to divert attention from regular meals.

Pickled and fermented foods, known to be as healthful as they are delicious, can be considered tangy dishes. Along with all the health benefits, adding foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, and kombucha may give your dishes a unique flavour. Apple cider vinegar has a million uses inside and outside the house. 

Are you prepared to spice up your meals with some tang? Then check out these tasty and zesty recipes when hungry at midnight!

 8 Tangy Dishes To Make When Craving Is At Peak

1. Crispy Cauliflower And Tahini Dressing

These Crispy Cauliflower are incredible. Fresh parsley is mixed with a zesty tahini sauce and served alongside cauliflower florets in cornmeal and Mediterranean spices like oregano and sesame. It would be a very nice snack, side dish, or appetiser. These are going to disappear quickly, so we advise making two batches.

2. Lemon Cheesecake 

You'll be amazed at how easy it is to prepare this lemon cheesecake with just five ingredients. You most likely already have the following items in your kitchen: bananas, dates, almonds, coconut oil, and a lemon. You can savour a creamy, tart cheesecake in no time. This can be the perfect dessert to have at midnight. 

3.  Zucchini Poppy Seed Cake

This recipe for Zucchini Poppy Seed Cake with Lemon Drizzle Icing is perfect if you have an abundance of zucchini or other summer squash you don't know what to do with! Poppy seeds lend a little crunch, the zucchini adds a tonne of moisture and a subtle sweetness, and the lemon icing gives it a zesty kick. Enjoy a slice of this wonderful cake with your preferred tea. How elegant!

4. Rice Paper Samosas

Rice paper samosas are here to stay. So, say goodbye to deep-fried, loaded with potato samosas! Rice paper bakes up beautifully; it's light, crispy, and delectable enough for samosas. The filling is made with cauliflower instead of the more common starchy potato, making it a much lighter option. Smothering them in tart mint chutney is the perfect finishing touch!

5. Easy Andean Cabbage Curry

You won't believe the flavour and beauty of this simple Home-Style Andean Cabbage Curry! The peanut butter gives it a wonderful creamy texture, and the acidic flavour of the citrus and ginger peels cuts through the richness. It's undoubtedly something to brag about! Also, it is perfect for the time when you don’t want something Indian but still want the same spicy tanginess at night. 

6. Stir-fried Brussels Sprouts with Kimchi

Given that Brussels sprouts aren't a typical Korean dish, you probably wouldn't think that kimchi and Brussels sprouts would pair well together. But it really isn't a question because they are both related to cabbage! You could eat this spicy, tangy, and soothing stir-fried dish with just about anything, including rice or noodles, or you could eat it by itself!

7. Asian Slaw with Sesame Ginger Marinated Portobello Burger

This delicious Asian Slaw with Sesame Ginger Marinated Portobello Burger will help you beat the dullness of a typical weeknight dinner. The acidic slaw and the savoury burger strike the ideal balance. This is a fuss-free weekday dinner that requires less than ten basic ingredients to prepare, which is also a wonderful incentive to keep firing up the grill!

8. Kimchi Poutine 

It may seem odd to combine a beloved Canadian dish with a nutritious Korean flavour explosion that improves digestion, but one taste of Kimchi Poutine will persuade you. These are hot, tender sweet potato fries with a dash of tangy, cheesy hemp sauce and nicely spiced kimchi that is fragrant, garlicky, gingery, and well-seasoned. Do we need to say much more? We didn't believe that.

9. Jackfruit Banh Mi Tacos 

The person who originally thought of transforming a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich into a taco was undoubtedly brilliant. Even a genius's creations may be enhanced, as evidenced by these fully plant-based and gluten-free Jackfruit Banh Mi Tacos. A soft corn tortilla encases tender jackfruit coated in a sweet-and-sour teriyaki sauce, then topped with crunchy, tangy pickled vegetables and creamy Sriracha mayo. That is one incredible Vietnamese taco.

Enjoy tart flavours? Try these recipes to satisfy the most intense appetite! These are not only perfect for midnight craving but they are excellent for supper ideas too.
