Whether you prefer to go-all-out-with-a-romantic-meal-at-home, or avoid Valentine’s Day all together (or maybe celebrate with a Valentine’s Day with your closest friends) a dinner still needs to be made. It’s up to you to pick out the restaurant if you’re going out, but if you’re staying in, may we suggest these menus?

Showstopper Valentine’s Day Dinner

Light the candles, make your mise en place, and wow your date with one of the most romantic meals out there.

1. Appetizer: Beet Apple Soup

Make your lover’s heart race with a warm bright pink soup.

Beet soup with coconut flakes and orange zest served in a white bowl on a wooden tray. Ginger, beets and sliced apples in background.

2. Entrée: Mushroom Bourguignon

Take a note from Julia Child and make a plant-based version of a French classic.

7. Dessert: Chocolate Raspberry Dump Cake

Nothing kills the mood like a huge pile of dishes after your dinner. Skip a couple pans by just mixing, baking and then eating this Chocolate Raspberry Cake with a spoon and vegan vanilla ice cream.
