6 Romantic Recipes to Share
Ahhh, the day of love is upon us. If you’re showering your soulmate in love, or just showing some self-love, there’s never been a better day to indulge in these romantic recipes to share (or eat for yourself, I’m not one to judge). Valentine’s Day has traditionally been a way to keep the owners of fancy restaurants in business, but the truth is, Valentine’s Days are better spent at home.
So if you’re looking for a last minute meal of love for the evening, or just a meal to love any time of the year, here’s what you should be cooking.
It’s never too late to start the day the romantic way. These crepes will woo even the hardest of hearts, with fresh local berry compote, and a plant-based base so anyone can eat them happily. You’ll want to kick off the day with these in bed, or have them later for dessert… Or both ;)
For those who prefer a brekky on the go, this bagel is still perfectly made with love. Using everyone’s favourite fresh, local seasonal berries (grown right here on the Sunshine Coast), try this recipe for a delicious breakfast ready in less time than it takes to brew a cup of coffee.
If you can’t take your lover to Paris this Valentine’s Day, bring Paris home with a perfectly cooked baguette. A simply perfect staple that can easily be prepared earlier, or the baguette becomes a fun activity to do together. Either way, you need this on your table, or picnic rug, or wherever you plan on spending the day.
Nothing is nicer than compound butter on a beautifully cooked steak. Paired with red wine, it’s the ultimate date night meal, right? This homemade roasted garlic & herb compound butter elevates even the most simple of dishes to a whole new level, and there’s never been a better time to impress.
We all know the movie plot. Boy kisses girl, girl kisses boy, the single spaghetti strand gets shorter and shorter… They say Italian is the language of love and if their pasta is anything to go by, then I wholeheartedly agree. Throw together a plate of this plant-based bolognese this evening and you’ll be seeing roses.
Sure, you could dive head first into a decadent dessert, or you could keep it simple and sweet with a chocolate truffle. This healthy take on dark chocolate can balance out the eating of the day in just the right way.
And if all else fails? A glass of organic red wine, to finish off the eve just right.
