An exciting food challenge involving foods that start with N! Why would anyone care about that kinda list? A meal or party based on foods that start with a certain letter is really fun. For example, if your hubby’s name starts with N and you want to throw him a party, here’s a list of N foods you can serve.
This is one of the hardest lists I’ve been asked to create. I was surprised at how many foods do not start with N.😉 But I gave it my best shot, and here it is. Enjoy!Nummy Noshing with N
Breakfast Foods that Start with N
Love doughnuts with your coffee for breakfast? These are even better. The French influence in New Orleans is most evident in its cuisine. Sweet dough fried and sprinkled with confectioner’s sugar allows us to enjoy the taste of Mardi Gras any time of year. Yum!
Bread has been a staple for millenniums, and it doesn’t look like our love affair with it will be ending any time soon. Would you like the smell and taste of homemade bread but have no time to make it? This super-easy recipe with simple ingredients is the perfect solution.
This one is acquired taste; some compare it to blue cheese. It’s not everyone’s favorite, but those that love it can’t live without it. Fermented soybeans in Japan are actually eaten for breakfast. Experts claim that fermented foods are important for our health, so this may be a good place to start.
Delicious Snacks that Start with N
The most obvious food that starts with N, and the first one that came to my mind, is nachos. One of the best things about them is how they are super easy and fast they are to make. Just pile some tortilla chips on a baking sheet, drizzle some nacho cheese sauce over the top, and then top them with more yummy stuff. I love to serve them with my Homemade Guacamole.
7. Nashi Pear
Asian pear, apple pear (due to its shape), Japanese pear, doesn’t really matter what you call it; a pear by any other name is still a pear. This particular fruit is crisp, firm, and juicy, making it perfect for eating fresh or cooking. It’s also high in fiber and nutrition, so it’s a good snack or dessert.
I had always considered nectarines to be naked peaches, which they actually are, genetically speaking. Their flavor is slightly different from a peach, but that doesn’t have to stop you from replacing peaches with them in any recipe.
Seaplants are typical of Asian food. Nori, actually a type of algae, is the dark green sheet surrounding sticky rice, seafood, and fresh veggies in sushi. It’s highly nutritious and has a unique taste that reminds me of the ocean.
Main Courses and Sides that Start with N
13. Ñame (also known as yam)
This incredible vegetable is a great replacement for potatoes. No, it is not a sweet potato. The taste and texture are closer to potatoes. It’s also easy to grow in tropical climates and a staple in most African and Caribean countries, where it’s almost impossible to grow potatoes.
14. Navy Beans
What can I say? Navy beans are smaller than white beans but are a good replacement in almost any recipe. They are perfect in this incredible Ham and Bean Soup, perfect in Southern Baked Beans, spectacular in Avocado White Bean Tuna Salad, and mouthwatering in my favorite Minestrone Soup recipe.
This Cameroonian dish from my homeland is my favorite way to eat greens. It’s a peanutty and spinach-y dish that is healthy, too. You can see in the picture that it is wonderful with plantains and shrimp.
The Chinese aren’t the only ones that make mouthwatering fried rice. This hearty and spicy dish with shrimp is perfect as a meal all by itself, and it’s an ideal way to get veggies into your family’s diet.
Soups and Salads that Start with N
Edible flowers are not only delicious but also beautiful. Nasturtiums are a little spicy and make a gorgeous addition to any salad. They are quite peppery; the first time I tried them, they about to took my breath away.
18. Nicoise Salad
A very satisfying salad with a combination of tuna, hard-boiled egg, tomatoes, veggies, and a wonderful balsamic red wine dressing. Highly indulgent and filling; not your average boring kind of salad!
A creamy white hearty soup made with fresh tender clams, potatoes, and smokey bacon. Definitely a great comforting dish in the cooler seasons!
20. Napa Cabbage
Desserts That Start With N
That deliciously sweet syrup that flowers produce. I prefer to let the bees have it and enjoy the honey they make. Then it goes in my tea, on my pancakes, or replaces sugar in some of my favorite desserts. It goes really well with mustard in my Honey Mustard Dressing
New York cheesecake is reported to be a Jewish invention, and aren’t we glad? Any family dinner or festive party can only get better with this dessert that starts with N. This quick and easy recipe is so worth it.
