Easy Valentine's Day Recipes
23. January 2024
Show your loved one how much you care by treating them to a romantic home-cooked meal this Valentine’s Day on February 14. We suggest keeping things as simple as possible so choose a menu that does not require hours of slaving in the kitchen so you can spend more time together.
Score extra brownie points by thinking about the presentation. For example, a few snipped herbs or a little drizzle of soy sauce around the plate will give that cheffy finish.
Try our easy Valentine menu ideas below. Use the handy button on the recipe to set it for 2 portions to give you the right amount of ingredients for dinner à deux… but don’t forget to buy the champagne and chocolate truffles!
Valentine Starters Ideas
For a sumptuous and elegant starter, Spicy Breadcrumbed Prawns with Edamame Dip is deceptively simple to make and you can make the dip in advance and keep it covered in the fridge.
Our Carrot and coriander soup is made extra luxurious with a topping of creamy burrata and almonds. If you want something that’s hands on, make a pretty platter of Tomato and avocado bruschetta or Salmon tartare blinis to feed each other.
Valentine Main Course Ideas
A classic Valentine main course sure to steal their heart is Herby soy marinated steaks – just remember to check how your partner likes their steak cooked and leave time for it to rest before serving. A Creamy mushroom sauce with mustard and soy sauce provides an extra special touch.
Or if fish is the food of love for your partner, Tamari lemongrass and lime salmon with orange and cucumber salad is lovely and light, and the passionate pink colour will look beautiful. Or tempt them with our one-pan dish of Oven baked cataplana with mussels and prawns to share. Seafood is considered to have mood-boosting aphrodisiac properties!
Valentine Dessert Ideas
Of if things get hot, hot, hot - cool things down with an Ice Cream Sundae with Salted Butterscotch Sauce and Hazelnut Praline. Delicious!
Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️
