You can find all our posts on Chinese New Year HERERenri, (literally Human Day), the 7th day of the Chinese New Year, is considered the day human beings were created, and is therefore everybody's common birthday, where everyone is considered one year older.
We decided to celebrate Renri with longevity noodles. These long noodles represent long life, and are often eaten on birthdays and for special occasions. The key is to do your best not to break the noodles when picking them up to eat, since the longer the noodle is, the longer your life should be.
We just cooked the noodles in a mixture of mushroom broth, soya sauce, oyster sauce and sesame oil. Mixed those with chopped green onions and sliced mushrooms - simple and good.
