Menu Ideas for Vegetarian Chinese New Year
Last year I made radish cake, nian gao and sticky rice. Any suggestion for items to add to my menu this year would be greatly appreciated?
Is this for a dinner party or a more casual meal?
You can always make Buddha's Delight. Here is one recipe: http://chinesefood.about.com/od/chine...
I know some kind of noodle dish is traditional. I like this easy vegetable chow mein recipe (http://www.recipezaar.com/Vegetable-C...) but there are many out there to choose from .
If your feeling ambitious, you might want to try Chinese Bean Curd Skin Rolls. I been brave enough to attempt this recipe yet. http://www.recipezaar.com/Chinese-Bea...
I don't know if it is appropriate for New Year's, but I love Barbara Tropp's Pan-Fried Scallion & Chive Bread (Chong Yu Bing) and apparently chives symbolize eternity. http://www.recipezaar.com/pan-fried-s...
And for dessert, you can always do almond cookies.
These are great. Thanks. It's just for me and my husband, so it's not going to be a for a big group.
