Celebrate Chinese New Year with some Asian inspired vegetable dishes

Chinese New Year is considered a major holiday for the Chinese and is celebrated on the first day of the Chinese calendar – January 31st in 2014 – the celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year's Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar – in 2014, January 30th – to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar.

The source of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions. Traditionally, the festival was a time to honour deities as well as ancestors. Chinese New Year is celebrated in countries and territories with significant Chinese populations, as well as by Chinese populations anywhere. In China, it is also known as the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name.
