Win Over Hearts in Your Kitchen: 8 Date-approved Recipes

Who doesn’t want a partner that can whip up a mean dinner, romantic breakfast-in-bed, or satisfy your midnight munchies?? If you’re on a mission to impress a special someone, start with one of these eight perfectly paired plant-based recipes, or even better, make them together:

  1. Creamy Tomato Soup + Grilled Cheese

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

Tomato soup and grilled cheese are the perfect pair, so why not share this plant-based meal with your better half?

  1. Paella + Tapas

Paella Rice Cooker Recipe

You don’t need to go to a fancy tapas restaurant to enjoy tapas. Grab your rice cooker and make this easy paella recipe. Combine with a selection of olives from the olive bar and a lit candle.  

  1. Taco Night

Vegan Taco Meat

Host your own Taco Tuesday. Start with the meat, then dice some tomatoes and onions to make your own pico de gallo. Make guacamole, or mix diced avocado with a bit of lime juice and sea salt. Take it to the next level by making pickled jalopenos, red onion and carrots. Just slice thinly, and soak in white vinegar for a minimum of 20 minutes. Assemble your own tacos so both of your taste preferences are met.

  1. Bourguiginon + Red Wine


This recipe calls for two cups of red wine. Feel free to divide the rest of the bottle between you both.   

  1. Chickpea Falafel Wrap + Hummus

Don’t let the fact that this is a wrap make you think it’s not impressive. Delicious homemade falafel, combined with homemade hummus, is a delicious, satisfying meal.

  1. Beer Braised Mushroom and Lentil Pie + Stout

In the awkward cusp between winter and summer, warm up on a chillier spring night with these portioned savory pies. Best paired with the stout you still have in your fridge.

  1. Pineapple Cashew Fried Rice + Sriracha


Grab your sriracha, and make a quick, good-for-you-both fried rice recipe.

  1. Risotto + Time
