Today, millions of people around the world will celebrate Chinese New Year. Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays; in China, it is known as “Spring Festival.” This year, Year of the Dragon, we’re celebrating the only mythological and “free spirit” of the Chinese Zodiac. Intense!
If you’re looking to celebrate tonight – or any night – and would like a little help in the kitchen, VH Sauces offer a quick, easy and tasty solution for bringing a little culture into your cuisine. Tonight, why not try out Hoisin Meatballs with Pineapple or Spring Rolls with Hoisin Dip for some Chinese New Year inspired meals. VH Sauces helps my family create healthy, delicious meals on the fly – perfect for those weekday nights when I’m craving take-out but want a more nutritious (and wallet-friendly) option. Plus, I love that the boys are introduced to different tastes and textures – they love almost every Asian cuisine I make, especially if it’s liberally doused in delicious VH Sauce!
To celebrate Chinese New Year tonight, we’re doing a little “East Meets West” with Honey Garlic Chicken Wings! I simply marinate the wings in the cooking sauce for 2 hours, and then bake them at 400 degrees Celcius until done. I’ll also reduce extra cooking sauce on the stove until it’s thick and sticky, and then baste the wings when they come out of the oven. YUM!
Of course, if you’re on the go and don’t have time to deal with pots, pans and dishes, do try VH Steamers. They’re Asian-inspired meals ready in less than 5 minutes and steamed to perfection! Available in Kung Pao Chicken, Shanghai Ginger Beef (my fave!), Honey Sesame Chicken, Chicken Teriyaki, Thai Chicken and Shrimp (think I’d love this too – a must try!) and Zesty Orange Chicken, they’re quick and tasty, perfect for lunch at the office or busy school nights.
