Piggy Yee Sang for Chinese New Year 2019

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!

We welcomed the Year of the Pig with this awesome Piggy Yee Sang. On the first day of CNY, we usually have vegetarian food, so this is a simple vegetarian yee sang which the kids put together (while mummy and Grandma were cooking) to usher in the Lunar New Year. How adorable!

Year of the Pig Yee Sang

CNY Day 1 Vegetarian Lunch  - Jai, stir fried leeks, braised mushrooms with broccoli.

Toss to a prosperous new year

Braised mushrooms with broccoli  and fatt choy (vegetarian) with a piggy touch (you can make pig snouts using carrots)

Piggy Yee Sang
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Serves 5-6

1/3 radish, peeled and julienned
1 carrot, peeled and julienned
2 blueberries
Peanuts, crushed
Fish biscuit, or any other crackers
Grapes, washed and cut in half
1 mandarin orange, peeled and separated into segments

For the dressing
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp honey

1. Arrange the lettuce on the plate. Then, using the radish, form an oval shape for the pig face. Use the julienned carrot to make the ears. Cut off one thin slice of carrot from the thick end, and use an oval cutter to cut the snout. Use smaller circles to cut two holes to complete the snout.

2. Place blueberries for pig's eyes. Arrange grapes and mandarin oranges. Pour over peanuts and fish biscuit/crackers as well as dressing before tossing. Enjoy!

Note: You can use a julienne peeler which you can get from Daiso.
