Foodie Friday: Recipes That Celebrate Chinese New Year

( Via: Vogue )

The Lunar New Year begins tomorrow. It's a colorful and happy time of year that is celebrated with food, family and friends. It is the year of The Rooster, which would not be my favorite animal! A run in with a rooster as a child, has given me a life long phobia of birds. But I do enjoy Chinese food, and a good Dragon Dance.  Take out - not so much. Here's a roundup that promises to be celebration worthy!

HERE: 20 Recipes For The New Year

Kung Pao Chicken
This recipe promises to be lighter and fresher than your local Chinese joint. There are many ingredients, but it is simple to put it together.

Chinese Salad Spring Rolls
How is this for a light lunch? Easy to make, healthy and oh so colorful.

Pomegranate Sesame Chicken with Ginger Rice Pilaf
The flavors of pomegranate, soy, and sesame are simple yet bright. The addition of fresh ginger to the rice adds depth. What a beautiful celebratory dish!

Char Siu
This recipe surprised me. At first glance I thought it was barbecue "something." In fact it is pork shoulder cooked with honey and wine. 

Quick and Easy Kimchi Ramen
A nostalgic dish that just happens to use a package of instant noodles! Clean out the pantry, or send this recipe to your college coed. It's quick, easy and said to be delish.
The Woks Of Life 

Homemade Spicy Ramen With Tofu
And for the adventurous cook, this recipe calls for making your own noodles! If your local store does not carry Asian food, Amazon does! Get your Miso here and the Sambel Chili Paste here.
Pinch Of Yum

Chocolate Covered Toasted Sesame Fortune Cookies
Don't you just love the fun of a Fortune Cookie? Even the bad ones are good. How thoughtful it would be to make up your own fortunes!!
Half Baked Harvest

Shiitake-and-Scallion Lo Mein
Asian street food is often served in Banana leaves, to make it easier to eat on the go. Aren't these beautiful? They would make a pretty platter for a crowd.
Food and Wine

Ginger Soy Red Snapper In Papillote
If there is one good luck food to be found on every Chinese table, it's fish. My friend, Sara prepared a fish dish in Papillote for New Years Eve.  It is quite a special preparation. Just add steamed rice!

 Chinese Chicken Salad With Sesame Garlic Vinaigrette
What a beautiful and colorful dish, right? Mandarin oranges compliment all of the green.

Fried Rice with Shrimp and Broccolini

I feel a little flu-like today. I just want a big bowl of this now!

Made with Asian mushrooms, Chinese cabbage, toasted peanuts, and more, these look delicious. I think they would be fun to make, too!

Siu Mai With Sticky Rice
These are actually steamed dumplings, and said to be a Chinese Dim Sum Desert. They look good, but would never be a substitute for cake to me!
China Sichuan Food  

Chinese Sesame Peanut Brittle
I just love Peanut Brittle, but haven't had it in years. This recipe, with only 4 ingredients, seems simple to make.

Lotus and Ginger Salad
Isn't this gorgeous? Though I have never heard of lotus, it looks as if it would be so worth the effort. How unique!

Caramelized Scallop Miang
What a beautiful and sophisticated appetizer! The trimmings like shredded coconut and roasted peanut pieces, are impressive.
