VH Brings Chinese New Year to your home


Chinese food is one of my ultimate comfort foods – when I was a kid it was an amazing treat when we’d have Chinese food for dinner and I’ve loved it ever since!

As an adult, I still really enjoy Chinese meals and I appreciate them even more now that I can make them myself. The best part is that VH Sauces help make it easy, even for the novice cook like me!

I’ve also developed a real taste for fusion foods, so when I saw the recipe for Hoisin Chicken Pizza, I knew that I was going to have to make it to celebrate Chinese New Year!

When I saw the recipe on the VH website, I knew it was the perfect recipe to try because it looked both really easy and really tasty! As always, however, I decided to change it up a little bit to put my own twist on dish! Broccoli is something we don’t enjoy (so much so that I even find the word hard to spell!) so I decided to substitute spinach for broccoli. I also decided to top our pizza with a cheddar/mozzarella mix to change up the flavours.

Here’s what I used (yes, that’s all that I needed!)

The result? Absolutely amazing! The depth of flavour that Garlic Hoisin sauce elevates this dish so much that it is almost beyond description! I love garlic and it works so well with hoisin (which I adore!). The sweet and crispy flavour of the red pepper merries with the sauce while the chicken provides a perfect compliment to everything. I was worried that substituting the spinach might cause a problem, but it has a crispy texture as well so it really added to the dish. The only thing I learned was that next time I won’t use a whole-wheat crust (or I won’t get distracted and will take it out a minute sooner!).

Because I love having dip with my pizza, I had some VH Plum Sauce and the sweetness of the sauce really worked well against the flavours and textures of the pizza. I will definitely be making this dish again!

The VH website has so many great ideas for Chinese New Year – because it runs for 15 days, I plan on making Hoisin Chicken Salad and Orange Ginger Meatballs as well! Check out the VH website and their Facebook page for a number of awesome meal ideas!
