Date Night Meals for Valentine’s Day

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

Here we are again,

With amazing recipes for you…

It’s that loved-up time of year again. And there’s nothing like making a good meal for someone to show them who your heart belongs to – or that you desperately want to get back into their good books!

Even if you’re spending the day by yourself, become your own valentine – show yourself how amazing you think you are – and treat yourself to one of these tasty recipes below.

Slow Cooker Red Wine Beef Stew

This is one mighty scrumptious stew. Tender chunks of beef wading in delicious red wine sauce, with fresh vegetables bobbing alongside, it might become you’re new go-to heart warmer.

What’s more, to prepare it, you simply throw everything into your slow cooker. So while it’s doing all the hard work, you’re on the sofa with a glass of red wine (from a bottle you retrieved from your treasured wine cooler), getting to know your valentine’s favourite colour and why they detest the word moist.

(Oh, slow cookers are slow, so you might want to put the ingredients in around four to five hours before your date arrives.)

Prawn Etouffee Risotto

We know what you’re thinking: you don’t fancy making risotto, not on this day of days. It’s too difficult; and the rice might come out all mushy, or undercooked.

We hear you. We really do. You want your meal – your evening – to go as smoothly as possible.

With all that being said, please face those fears and make this amazing risotto. You’ll be so proud of yourself with your success; it will be a taste sensation. Fresh, salty, zingy, and warm, it’s such a delicious dish to wow someone with.

One piece of advice: be heavy-handed with the parmesan. It’s world-changing stuff.

Vegan, Gluten-free Lasagne

Want to know a secret? Lasagne is the anagram of satisfying. That’s totally false. We just made it up. But there’s nothing like a lasagne to leave us with that warm, satisfying feeling inside.

Here’s a perfect vegan and gluten-free lasagna recipe for you to enjoy. This particular recipe serves 10 to 12, so you should have (should have) plenty of leftovers to enjoy for a couple of days.

And you know what they say about overnight lasagne…

(No? It’s supposed to taste even better than it does fresh.)

Valentine’s Day Steak (and Lamb)

There’s something about cooking up a great steak that raises one’s profile, both in the kitchen and in the eyes of others. That may be why steak is one of the most popular dishes for people to make their special guest on Valentine’s Day.

So here are eight steak recipes for you to try. We’re spoiling you, we know.

But that’s not all: if lamb is your meat of choice, you’ll find eight lamb recipes there too.

You’re welcome.
