Banish bad vibes with these lucky recipes from Food Network.
Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day when anything bad can happen. To combat any negative vibes that might come your way, we rounded up a list of seven (lucky number!) dishes featuring lucky ingredients that you can make. One should be plenty for some positive energy, but feel free to make all seven if you’re feeling extra superstitious!
Ring-shaped foods are symbolic of coming full circle in some cultures. Make Ina Garten’s Cinnamon Baked Doughnuts (pictured above) for a fall-flavored breakfast.
Roasted Whole Fish
In Chinese culture fish is symbolic of abundance and serving one whole is the ultimate display of the notion. Amanda Freitag’s Herb-Stuffed Whole Fish is ultra-elegant.
The Japanese believe that soba noodles signify good luck and longevity. Get a large helping of both with generous portions of these Cold Peanut Soba Noodles with Chicken.
Green is the color of money so it only makes sense that eating more of the color would bring you prosperity, right? Even if you don’t totally buy into the idea, this Braised Chard with Dried Cranberries is a dish we can all get behind.
Round cakes are considered lucky because they symbolize coming full circle. We recommend this Concord Grape Layer Cake for its added level of luck: grapes.
In the American South, black eyed peas symbolize wealth because according to folklore they saved the south from famine. Myth or not, this Black-Eyed Pea Soup is sure to hit the spot.
Cornbread is the color of gold, symbolizing wealth. We recommend making this Cornbread Chili Poke Bake for extra good luck.
