Was prepping a pizza the other day and eating spoonful of peanut butter at the same time. Wasn't paying attention and almost dropped the PB onto the dough, and that got me thinking, hmm, wonder if I could pull off a pizza with PB as an ingredient. Haven't given the idea much thought since, but I was thinking maybe an Asian-style pizza with some kind of peanut sauce. Will see if I can come up with something even crazier than that, though. But there, that's my odd combo, pizza and peanut butter.

Post about your weird food combination ideas here. It can be cuisines mixed with other cuisines, or cuisines mixed with unlikely ingredients, or the unlikely pairing of ingredients... whatever. It can be just the idea, or it can be full recipes you've developed. And feel free to create something with other people's weird ideas, and to post pictures of the results!

I freeze Oreos and put chocolate syrup on them, but I don't think that's really unlikely, just uncommon, I guess, compared to pizza and peanut butter

There's a French cuisine called 'fries' that goes well with this tomato-y sauce called ketchup. It's a pretty good combination.

Lol! When I was an omni, I used to love fries and mayonnaise, and everyone thought I was crazy. I also liked dipping the fries in mayonnaise with a little bit of mustard mixed in, but I haven't gotten veganaise yet to continue doing this, so I stick with ketchup and mustard mixed together, and sometimes, when I feel too lazy to find the mustard or I'm out somewhere and don't want to ask for mustard, I just use ketchup.

I think a peanut butter and onion sandwich is pretty tasty.

French fries and ranch dressing was my favourite thing when I was a kid.

We had a thread just like this a few years back, that's how I got turned on to Baked Potatoes with A1

My weird food combos: Tortilla chips and vegan jel, Baked beans with Ruffles potatoes chips, and PB&J with Ruffles inside.

Mint and root beer. While at a family gathering, I was eating something very minty (a brownie with a mint creme on top) and went to drink a bit of my root beer... and it tasted really good. I had others who were there try the combo and they all agreed. I now go out of my way to have root beer around when I eat something minty. Root beer floats with mint ice cream is nice too. I also grew up eating peanut butter and colby cheese sandwiches. A lot of people think it's gross, but none of them had actually tried them. It was my favorite sandwich. Also, French fries are awesome dipped in a mayo and ketchup mixture.

I think if you search for recipes for homemade root beer, there is some sort of mint extract that is used in the mixture, that's assuming you are doing it from scratch and not just buying root beer extract. That may have something to do with the tastiness of your combination.

My boyfriend and I went to the local specialty beer store for one of their free tastings the other day, and we had beer floats with different kinds of stouts and vanilla ice cream. Very interesting and tasty.

That sounds nasty!

I like sandwiches with vegan cheese and jam.

Peanut butter and pickle sandwiches are good.

I don't think 99% of what's in this thread is unusual or gross.

I used to love crisps dipped in dairy yoghurt. I don't think I've tried a vegan version yet.

Well my breakfast this morning was cold (leftover) uncle ben's herb and wild rice with veganaise and tobasco sauce mixed in, a drizzle of low-sodium V8, sprinkled with onion salt. Yum!

Well, it is unusual, in that you're the first person I've connected with who does this, still, it's not gross to me.

This reminds me of when I used to eat chocolate milkshakes or frosties and dipped my fries in them. It was really good!

peanut butter and pickles is bomb! has to be bread and butter pickles, though - it only works with sweet ones. I used to think my brothers were so gross when they'd do this... they're so happy they recruited me to the dark side.

bananas with sweet chili sauce
apples with spicy orange sauce
and I mix spicy bbq sauce with honey mustard for my fries. (although that's not really weird, if you can get past the color of it.)

I don't like the sweet pickles, I use dill or other sour pickles.

I remember the first time I had this; I was a little girl and my family was helping people move. There were a bunch of hungry kids and all they had was a jar in the fridge with a few pickles and a bit of peanut butter in the bottom of the jar. So, they put them together on the few pieces of bread they had and viola!

I used to drink pickle juice from the jars and also lick the rabbit's salt lick as a child, so not much seems odd to me really.

I've never tried that, but now I really, really want a Frosty. They need to make a vegan version, that's probably the only ice cream that I miss, besides Phish Food, but chocolate Frosty's are the only plain ones without candy and flavors and stuff mixed in

YES! I want vegan versions of McDonald's seasonal shakes too. I miss shamrock shakes!!

Same here. I put salt or salty condiments on everything.

A few times a year I have to have it... peanut butter & ketchup sandwich on fresh white bread.

Yes, I know.

I'm sensitive, & I'd like to stay that way ~JK~

I share your affinity for pickle juice AND salt licks. I used to lick the big purple salt blocks that we had on the farm for cows. Seemed perfectly normal...and tasty.

That sounds worth trying... Maybe will try that combination (PB and onions) on the pizza, if I get around to thinking of something that will work with that, haha.

Ooooh, that sounds nummy. Next time I've got some vegan mint ice cream handy, gonna try that.

And it's not weird to me that you'd find cheese and PB good together. Many vegan cheeze sauces contain tahini or nut butters. So rich and fatty.

Oooh. Been meaning to try making some kind of a curry with bananas sometime. That's not my own idea, though, I've seen it done on a cooking show and saw it in an Indian recipe book I had out from the library.

My blood pressure's also always been on the low end of normal, or a bit below sometimes, and I used to take that as a license to eat as much salt as I wanted (and I used to eat A LOT, before I moved out on my own). It's a mistake to do that, though, as a high salt intake causes your body to lose calcium. Salt (as well as sugar and animal protein) makes your blood acidic, and to get it back to normal, your body takes calcium from your bones to make your blood more alkaline again. It's not as problematic if you consume lots of calcium (eat a variety of greens, beans, lentils, soy products, almonds and almond butter), but many people don't. Pair a low calcium intake with a high salt, sugar, and/or animal product-heavy diet and that's a recipe for future disaster for your bones.
