For all of you lovebirds out there, now would be a good time to start planning your Valentine’s Day dinner menu: February 14 is coming very soon. Here are some Valentine’s day dinner ideas, from a modern kale caesar to my foolproof method for cooking steak, to a roasted cauliflower dish, to a perfect flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Impress your boo on valentine’s day, or any date night, with this easy, foodie menu!
This is the best kale salad recipe – it’s a copycat of the Barbuto (RIP) kale salad, loaded with fluffy greens and salty, garlicky breadcrumbs, and it’s perfect for a Valentine’s Day homemade dinner. It comes together quickly in a food processor and is great in the depths of winter as well as in warmer weather. This kale salad is the least sad kale salad you’ll ever have – it’s truly my favorite.
Here’s a recipe for a perfectly seared steak with rosemary butter. This is the easiest, most foolproof steak recipe — all you’re doing is pan searing it and topping it with butter and rosemary.
Inspired by chicken marbella from The Silver Palate, here is a vegetarian version of chicken marbella, using roasted cauliflower. It is sweet, salty and has some agrodolce vibes — sooo yummy! This could be a vegetarian main dish too if you’re not feeling the steak for your Valentine’s Day dinner.
To close out this Valentine’s Day dinner menu, make this flourless chocolate cake, which I call a fallen chocolate cake. It’s easy, gorgeous, rustic and elegant. Serve with ice cream. creme fraiche, or whipped coconut cream. This fallen chocolate olive oil cake will impress your boo without a doubt.
