With the Asian New Year just around the corner, I'd like to share some of my favorite Asian vegan and vegetarian dishes with you. As I've mentioned many times, there is a tradition of abstaining from meat from the day before the new year through the day after. With as many vegetarians as I have in my house, I always find myself coming up with new variations on Vietnamese dishes. 

So whether are looking for vegetarian dishes to fill 3 days or 365, you'll find plenty of inspiration in this post. Enjoy!

*My very sweet 17-year-old sister-in-law Sunny bought these adorable shoes for baby Aria on her recent trip to China last month and I wanted to share it with you.

Chuc Mung Nam Moi! (Year of the Dragon) Recipe

Chúc Mừng Năm Mới (Happy New Year!)! For Vietnamese and many Asian people, tomorrow will be Tết, the beginning of the Year of the Dragon.

If you'd like to celebrate, here are a few Asian dishes I cooked and shared on the website throughout the year. The weather isn't that great in the Bay Area, so I probably won't step outside (i still haven't lost the baby weight so I don't think I would fit in an ao dai -traditional Vietnamese dress). I hope this year brings you a lot of joyful moments, good health and of course great food!
