This is my 2nd New Years eating no meat, but my first one as a vegan. I'm looking for something that will make my omni family happy. I'd like one that uses all clean ingredients, and no fake meats. Would love to have it include cabbage as my hubby usually makes ham and cabbage or just cooks a ham. Maybe something with black eyed peas, although I think my daughter may bulk (home from college- but heck she eats it or starves, lol). Would also love for it to work in a crockpot, although I'm fine with stovetop too.

Would love to hear your ideas. I have lots of cookbooks so let me know your favorites and maybe I'll end up having the recipe.

Thanks in advance. I've got to get working on this and fast.

You don't COOK anything. You mix up cocktails for New Years and let someone else do the cooking.

But seriously, golabki (galumpki). It's stuffed cabbage rolls cooked over the stove.

Or you could do little finger sammiches? Maybe teeny reubens with saurkraut and vegan russsian dressing. The recipe from VWaV is awesome.

Black-eyed peas are eaten on New Years Day for good luck. :) There is a black-eyed pea recipe in Appetite for Reduction.

I'm making Thai Chick-Un Pizza from Eat, Drink and Be Vegan and probably a salad of some sort. Probably not really what you're looking for though.

unless you're the designated chef for a large japanese family, in which case you're screwed!!

we make traditional foods, i haven't gotten the menu down yet but i have some basics; we don't do the cook-three-days'-worth old school thing, but we do have specific food that's needed.... like black beans and mochi are required.

We'll be having:
- fried mochi wrapped in nori (classic),
- namasu (salad with daikon and carrots and etc with sweet vinegar)
- this sweet recipe i got off japanese tv the other day with frozen tofu wrapped in konbu and simmered in a shoyu sauce.....
- we'll have some sort of sushi, even though i could do without it, because the family goes nuts for sushi

and i still have to figure out the black beans. not sure what to do, usually they're sweet, but i saw a recipe the other day that used boiled peanuts instead of the black beans, i might try that.

there's more, probably homemade pickles.

i think this year on new year's eve we'll also do the noodles-at-midnite-thing, along with the brazilian thing of grapes at midnight. we'll be stuffing our pie holes at midnight, it'll be great!


As for your own new year- Pierogies!!! along with haluski!! everyone loves pierogies. and your cabbage problem gets solved right there.

Here's what I did a few New Year's Eves ago:
http://elizaveganpage.blogspot.com/2008/12/black-eyed-peas-with-okra-and-sweet.html

Not sure what I'm doing this year; maybe a more "traditional" approach, like Susan's recipe from FatFreeVegan:

Torque I didn't know about the grapes or noodles. Fun! I love food traditions like these. So this is my menu for tomorrow:

Nye
Early dinner: peanut butter buckwheat soba noodles
Nighttime party food: Texas caviar & Stromboli
Midnight: grapes

Dinner on new years day:
Lentil & spinach stew
Cabbage salad (probably with apple & pecans)

I'm definitely making Joanna's Hoppin' John cakes for breakfast, because its really the only way my bf will eat black-eyed peas (and they are delicious!!). Damn though, that recipe Desdemona linked to would be perfect too because I have okra and sweet potatoes to use up! maybe I will make both. Otherwise I have no idea whats for dinner.

Ok - My family decided on something I made last night for dinner. My daughter was seriously drooling over my dinner. Guess she shouldn't have turned down having some of my dinner before she found out what it was. I made mushrooms and garlic sauted in olive oil and then had it over angel hair spagetti. I get this at my local hole in the wall Italian restaurant and it's so good. Last night was my first night recreating it myself. It was fabulous. I never thought we would decide on Italian, but I'm fine with that. Hubby and my daughter are out picking up the ingredients and grabbing a loaf of Italian bread. I hope they find some without milk or eggs. I told them to try the bakery section.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions. I really appreciate it.

I always eat black eyed peas and cabbage on New Years, it's a tradition. Black eyed peas for luck, cabbage for cash (some do collards).
I usually cook the black eyed peas with ro-tel tomatoes and serve it on brown rice, and sautee the cabbage with onions and garlic (or make it into a soup in the crock pot with vegetable stock). Not fancy, I know, but tasty.

I just made Vegan Hoppin' John from a recipe I found on VegWeb. I can't wait for lunch in 30 minutes. It smells wonderful.

Today I'm going to make the tangerine tofu with chipotle adobe beans and coconut rice along with some steamed spinach (tangerine tofu and chipotle bean recipes from VCON). I've made this combo several times before and I love it. I wanted to make the potato and chickpea enchiladas for NY but I've got a cold and didn't feel like walking down to Kensington market after I got off work yesterday to get tomatillos, I just wanted to get home. But I'm really happy that I'm making something special that I love anyway.

So, you should eat black eye beans for New Years to get good luck for the next year? I had no idea, so great to learn new traditions like this :)

I was lucky enough to be a guest at a dinner party last night, but I won't tell you what I had since lots of it wasn't vegan...sorry...I'll be a better grrl next year, promise...

But today i made wonderful sandwiches on super-great sourdouch all-rye bread, with coarse tahini, leftover roasted sweet potatoes and pumpkin, pear and avocado. Beats the crepe out of any pizza pie I've ever had, vegan or not.

happy happy 2011!
