Lunar New Year Eats
This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.
I LOVE a holiday. ANY HOLIDAY! Especially if it involves special foods. Yesterday, I celebrated the Year of the Pig with good luck foods.
For dinner, I whipped up a simple stir-fry with Korean rice cakes (for prosperity!), broccoli, squash, and mushrooms. I used gochujang, ginger, and soy sauce to season. I love, love, love these chewy little rice cakes, but I so often forget to cook with them. I keep a bag in my deep freezer at all times.
On the side, I steamed some Nasoya Thai-Basil Vegetable Dumplings (for success!). These pre-made dumplings are vegan and super-convenient. I also keep these stashed in the deep freezer.
I read that you’re also supposed to eat oranges (for good health!) on the Lunar New Year. So my dessert was a naval orange and some orange dark chocolate from Wei Joyful (this amazing chocolate was in my February Goddess Provisions box). Btw, Maynard totally thought this orange was a ball! Silly dog. He was pretty disappointed when I ate it.
