Luxury vegetarian ideas for Valentine’s Day

Start in style

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.

More stunning starters…
Beetroot patties
Chilli broad bean fritters with homemade labneh
Baked goat’s cheese with hazelnut crust & balsamic onions

The main event

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.

More mouth-watering mains…
Sticky tempeh, mango & lime noodle salad
Golden-glazed carrot, mushroom & hazelnut tart
Beetroot orzotto

Indulge in dessert

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.

More delicious desserts…
Rhubarb & ginger crumble
Floating islands with caramel sauce
Black forest brownies

Brilliant brunches

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.

More breakfasts & brunches…
Almond & raspberry cruffins
Eggy spelt bread with orange cheese & raspberries
Homemade crumpets with burnt honey butter
