A Dozen Vegan New Year's Holiday Dishes

Growing up, we never celebrated New Year's the traditional American way. Our Mom was a Teetotaler, and so there were no New Year's Parties, and we really didn't do the New Year's traditional feast, either. We waited for the New Year to ring in (sometimes at Church, sometimes watching the ball drop on T.V.), then would sleep late on New Year's Day - and spend a quiet day relaxing.

As a result, I was grown up before I even found out that many Americans had a traditional menu for the holiday. Pork; Black-Eyed Peas; Greens, Sauerkraut or Cabbage; and Cornbread! Who knew?! ; )

So, here are my favorite recipes for dishes with those ingredients - a few traditional, some remarkably non-traditional.

Whether your family celebrates the New Year in a traditional or non-traditional way, I hope you enjoy these recipes & have a wonderful New Year!

  3. There aren't traditional NY dishes in Australia either, so I have only recently discovered the American ones! These look great for any time of year to me :)

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
