Luxury vegetarian recipes for Valentine's Day
Starter: seasonal salad
Set the tone for the evening with a luxurious creamy Jerusalem artichoke soup, or make the most of the short but sweet blood orange season with a warm winter salad of artichokes and feta. For a lighter bite, serve a delicious dip such as beetroot & mint or courgette & tahini, with plenty of spicy za’atar croutons to share.
Main course: easy veggie bakes
Pull out all the stops with a decadent treat of truffled parsnip & brioche pudding with hazelnut & thyme butter, or wrap halloumi into crispy filo pastry parcels and serve with a sweet potato tahini mash. For an aesthetically enticing vegan option, these falafels with spicy tomato & cashew sauce are sure to impress. Short on time? Dress up a pack of shop-bought ravioli with artichokes, leek and lemon for a memorable meal in minutes.
Dessert: indulgent puds
End on a high note with something sweet. Our site stats show you're fans of a fondant – add a zingy twist with our chocolate lime fondants or go for a gooey toffee pudding. For a fruity favourite, try our individual Chinon apple tarts, or add an exotic flavour with our vegan-friendly chai coconut & mango creams.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to tuck into an indulgent breakfast in bed. Serve up a bright and bold brunch of griddled cornbread with devilled eggs & avocado or spinach baked eggs with parmesan & tomato toasts. For the sweet-toothed, our chocolate-filled pancakes with caramelised banana or pink-hued porridge with beetroot, apple & cranberry compote are sure to satisfy. If you’re vegan, our tofu brekkie pancakes will set the day off to a good start.
