For your New Year’s spread, try a hummus-style lentil dip. Lentils resemble coins, and coins signify wealth. Prosperity for the gold!
First, delicious. Second, ditto on the coin resemblance. You could make these as a side dish with greens and bacon, or puree them with some olive oil and salt for a light and simple dip.
Pork is purportedly the luckiest food! Pigs represent progress and prosperity. Wrap some in a blanket so some of that prosperity rubs off!
They look like paper money (there seems to be a hangup in the lucky superstitions department), but I always think it behooves a girl to eat some kale. Especially if you’re on the pork train.
And don’t forget the festive AND fortune-bearing champagne punch. This one is made with pomegranates. Luck is yummy.
