Valentine's Day Plant-Based Dinner? Maybe?
Here are the key requirements the ultimate Valentine’s Day dinner should consist of:
It should be a special meal, different from what you normally cook or eat for dinner.
It shouldn’t take too much time or effort. You don’t want to be exhausted when you finally sit down to eat with your love.
In the same vein, this meal should have elements you can prepare ahead of time (like the day before) so you don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen the day of the event.
It should be decadent and indulgent with rich flavors and textures.
The meal should be plated with care so it looks as delicious as it tastes.
And finally, it shouldn’t be too heavy or hard to digest, as that will get in the way of other romantic post-dinner activities you might have planned.
Taking all these elements into consideration, you might be starting to see my point about plant-based dinners being perfect for Valentine’s Day. Although it might not seem like it at first glance, cooking a plant-based Valentine’s dinner is actually the perfect way to avoid that super heavy, uncomfortable, “let’s just sit on the couch vegetating for the rest of the night” feeling!
