New Year’s Foods for Good Luck

lentil-recipe

Start the New Year of right with a “good luck” meal! Some foods are symbols of good luck—especially when it comes to the New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day holidays. If you’re looking for a few good luck foods, check out these family-friendly options.

Lentils

With a shape that’s believed to look like Roman coins, lentils are a symbol of wealth and prosperity for the New Year. Cook the lentils, let them cool and add them to a festive holiday day salad. Mix the lentils with greens (which are also a lucky New Year’s food), add raisins or dried cranberries and sprinkle slivers of almonds or pecans in. Top with your favorite dressing or serve it fresh as-is.

Soba Noodles

These Japanese noodles symbolize a long life, as long as you don’t break them. Add soba noodles in to your favorite soup recipe or mix them with sautéed veggies!

Pork

Like lentils, pork is also a New Year’s symbol of wealth and prosperity. If you’re not in the mood to cook a fancy foodie fest after a long week of holiday prep, try a pork sandwich instead. Pulled pork or roasted pork sandwiches are casual options for a fun family meal.
