First up we have delicious Thai Lettuce Wraps with Ginger Lime Satay from Kristen at The Endless Meal.
And because I love Thai food we have some lovely Thai Spring Rolls from Compass And Fork.
Crisp Honey Shrimp with Candied Walnuts is definitely a favored recipe for the Chinese New Year table. We have 4 Sons ‘R’ Us to thank for this yumminess.
Noshtastic offers the next beautiful dish. Here we have a gluten free version of P.F. Chang’s Beef a La Sichuan recipe.
This Soy Ginger Lemon Chicken from Sugar and Soul is another great option for your Chinese New Year menu.
Spicy Cashew Chicken is offered from The View from Great Island as another option for your Chinese Feast. I actually substituted tofu for this one. 😉
Fried Rice, anyone? If you are going to have it then it should be a good one! Try out this Crab Fried Rice from Siam Sunset Restaurant. Thank you PKP Way.
Here I get more decadent and offer a link to the amazing Maggie over at Omnivore’s Cookbook. You simply must visit her site and see all of the delights but pick just ONE cookie (if you can) to round out this Asian feast. I am in for the Quinoa Sesame Brittle.
For sure Chinese New Year is not about small dainty meals. The food is plentiful and some foods hit on the really healthy part of the spectrum and some are far on the other side. choose wisely and remember, if it is not delicious then do not eat it! I am in for the Quinoa Sesame Brittle.
