The vegetarian potstickers for Chinese New Year were sponsored by Ling Ling, all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
Chinese New Year is on February 5th
And 2019 is the Year of the Pig according to the Chinese zodiac. The Pig is the twelfth sign in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. In China, the Pig is not thought to be a smart animal due to its nature. However, on the positive side, it is believed it can bring wealth.
In China, the new year celebration is of high importance. We like to embrace this celebration at home as a way to learn about other cultures while enjoying a good meal and practicing some of the rituals that bring good fortune.
Our menu includes authentic vegetarian potstickers!
We decided to purchase the Ling Ling brand because it has authentic flavors and their products made with high quality, clean ingredients like freshly sourced vegetables and savory proteins.
We found the Ling Ling brand at our local supermarket and purchased the vegetarian potstickers with cabbage, tofu, and garlic. We also added a bag of the free-range chicken & vegetable potstickers too. You can find both products in the freezer aisle.
The package of potstickers includes the Ling Ling’s signature dipping sauce which is the perfect pairing as it has a pleasant smokey nutty flavor. You do not have to buy or prepare any additional sauce which makes this product convenient and cost-effective.
The vegetarian potstickers are easy to make, follow the instructions in the package and a few minutes later you can enjoy authentic potstickers freshly made at home. Buy them today!
