25 EPIC Vegan Recipes for Chinese New Year

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

Happy Chinese New Year! According to ancient legend, a fearsome beast called Nian (which also means “year” in Mandarin) terrorized the lands and villages of the Chinese people at the end of each year. He was said to eat a whole group of children in a single bite with his ferocious sharp teeth. In order to ward away this evil, the Chinese wore bright red and set off firecrackers to scare Nian away. This is how the Chinese came to celebrate the beginning of each lunar new year.

 

Did you know? Chinese New Year falls on a different date every year because the holiday follows the lunar calendar. The new year starts on the second new moon after the winter solstice.

The names of the recipes look fabulous and I really wanted to try some, but beware, this webpage has a TON going on and my meager internet can\'t handle the bandwidth for bells, whistles, ads, etc etc. I\'m going to try to recreate my own version of the recipes with just the names to go on, since I can\'t load any page. Well, I did load page 1 but it took 8 minutes and I\'m not waiting 8 minutes for each of 25 recipes.

Totally an answer to a deep wish to make vegan Chinese dishes with all the cool gadgets my kids gave me for Christmas including a bamboo steamer and a dumpling press!!

More accurate to wish Happy Lunar New Year as there are millions people other from south east Asia countries celebrate this event too :)
