We love Chinese New Year! We are all about the red, superstitions, and the celebrations with food! You probably already know that you shouldn’t be cleaning, bathing, or crying on this year’s Lunar New Year so what else there to do? EAT!

Traditionally Chinese food isn’t famous for its vegetarian and vegan options but we found 5 amazing recipes that will help you bring in the Year of the Rat!

Vegan Kung Pao Lentils

You really can’t celebrate Chinese New Year without lots of rice! We love this recipe because it reminds us of all the deep-fried deliciousness of fried rice or veggies but with a bit of a twist.


Citrus Baked Orange Tempeh

Tempeh is a fantastic alternative to meat. It’s rich with protein, vitamins, and minerals and is satisfyingly filling! We often use it in our Asian stir-fry dishes instead of meat for a delicious vegan alternative.



Vegan Golden Sesame Balles


Now, this is something we could snack on all day long! Such simple ingredients and we bet we could make a big batch and put them in the freezer to enjoy for the rest of the month!


Chinese Cucumber Salad

The thing about Chinese food is there can be a lot of rice and fried foods. So we love this recipe as a bit of a palate cleanser between the other dishes.


Shiitake Wonton Soup

Yes! It wouldn’t truly be a Chinese feast without Wonton Soup! But this one is made with those delicious shiitake mushrooms instead of the traditional meat filling. Yum!
