Elevating Lunar New Year with Dishes Residents Will Love

As we welcome the Year of the Dragon in 2024, it's the perfect time to spice things up on your menu and get residents excited for the upcoming Lunar New Year celebrations.

Here are some heartwarming and nutritious food ideas for residents that will make this Chinese New Year a truly special and nourishing experience.

  1. Herb-Infused Chicken Soup with Goji Berries: Kick off the New Year festivities with a bowl of comforting herb-infused chicken soup. Loaded with nourishing herbs like ginseng and goji berries, this soup is not only delicious but also full of antioxidants and immune-boosting properties. The warmth and depth of flavour make it an ideal starter for your Lunar New Year celebration.

  2. Sesame Ginger Glazed Salmon: Upgrade the classic fish dish with a sesame ginger glaze. Salmon, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, supports heart health and cognitive function. The sesame and ginger add a burst of flavour while promoting digestion, making this a delightful and nutritious main course that caters to the dietary needs of residents.

  3. Quinoa Fried "Rice" with Mixed Vegetables: Give a healthy spin to a classic Lunar New Year dish by substituting quinoa for rice. Packed with protein and fibre, quinoa provides a nutritious base for a vegetable-loaded fried "rice." Add a variety of colourful vegetables and lean protein for a well-balanced and satisfying meal that's easy on the digestive system.

  4. Red Date and Walnut Sweet Soup: Wrap up the New Year feast with a dessert that's both sweet and nutritious. A sweet soup made with red dates and walnuts is not only a delightful way to end the meal but also provides a dose of antioxidants, fibre, and essential minerals. It's a symbol of good health and prosperity, making it a fitting conclusion to the Lunar New Year celebration.

Adding these delicious recipes to your menu will not only tantalise residents taste buds, but also contribute to a vibrant and joyous celebration.

May the Year of the Dragon bring prosperity, good health, and happiness to all!
