Who said you and your significant other would need to jet off to Paris for a romantic evening filled with good food and romance? With the COVID-19 pandemic making it a little difficult to head outside and enjoy all the cute romantic things we were so accustomed to, spending evenings at home have become the norm. However, if you’re looking to sprinkle your evenings with a little romance, adding some candles, flirty music, and a delicious meal may just help you get into the mood.
Here are six romantic dinner ideas to try this week:
Nothing adds a touch of elegance to a dinner recipe, quite like an expensive fish and creme fraiche. Despite the price tag, salmon is a delicious and healthy protein that offers plenty of benefits, and this simple recipe is easy to make, adding wine and lemon for a delicious twist on a classic.
While Paris may hold the title for the most romantic city in the world, there’s nothing quite as romantic (and tasty) as sharing a delicious bowl of pasta. This recipe is bursting with flavour and offers a unique take on a classic with pine nuts, feta and mint, making a feature next to the star of the show – homemade pappardelle pasta.
A scrumptious choice when you’re celebrating romance and meatless Monday. This creamy vegetable pot pie is easy to make and contains ingredients you most likely have in your fridge. It’s also the perfect addition to your winter weeknight menu.
Food and wine are a match made in heaven, but food cooked in wine is heaven! If you’re looking to show off your seafood cooking skills, may we suggest this mouth-watering (and simple) mussel recipe? The best part is that this recipe takes around 10 minutes to make and feeds two people – perfect for those nights you want to spice things up, but you’re also in a rush.
Orzo pasta, crispy chicken thighs, Dijon mustard and mushrooms all come together to make a deliciously simple recipe that will elevate any date-night dinner. You won’t need to worry about washing too many dishes either, as this is a mouth-licking one-pot dish.
A good curry is always a great idea when trying to heat things up, and this creamy Thai beef and vegetable curry is sure to do the trick. This recipe serves four and will take approximately 35 minutes to complete – perfect for those busy nights and when you’re searching for something scrumptious to eat come lunchtime.
