25 EPIC Vegan Recipes for Chinese New Year


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.

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!!
