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 :)
