Food Cart (or Truck) Recipes to Make at Home

What to whip up when there aren't any food trucks around

Vegetable Gyros with Tzatziki

I love food trucks. Whenever I am visiting a new city, I like to look up what food trucks the place is known for. When I was in Portland, Ore., a year ago, I visited a whole neighborhood of them, and it was amazing. Living in New York for so long, I was always surprised by what new food truck would pop up. There was a Sweet Treats truck that was always swinging around with fresh brownies, and a Belgian-themed food truck that would pull up with hot beignets. Of course, there are many nights when I stopped at one of the taco trucks for a delicious dinner that cost less than five bucks. Here are some of my favorite food truck recipes and instructions on how you can make them at home… in case there is no food truck parked on your block! — thenaptimechef
