Spice up your vegan Valentine's Day dinner at home with these Feisty Fiesta Recipes. And with this fiesta spread you can stay on track with your "Meatless Monday" habit!
I'm guessing that many happy couples will be spending tonight cuddled up inside. But "takeout" is so not romantic guys. Scoot in the kitchen with your valentine and whip up this vegan feisty fiesta feast together!...
Valentine's Day Dinner at home: Vegan Feisty Fiesta Feast
Sexy Tempeh Tacos - Light and healthy!
Cheezy Tofu Enchiladas (verde or rojo sauce) - warm cozy romantic comfort food.
Your entree can be paired with some California-inspired Tomato Mexican Rice and spicy salsa rojo. Add some of my party lemon guacamole, and my favorite Mexican side dish: sauteed sweet plantains. Also fun is my salsa verde or jalapeno poppers.
My idea of the perfect dinner salad for your spread: this Fiesta Salad with Zesty Lime-Agave Dressing. Or try a sweet/mild Avocado Beet Pea Shoot Salad.
Anytime I'm serving a Mexican spread I always like a big bowl of chopped citrus on the table. I marinate mandarins, oranges or grapefruit with black pepper, lime and a drizzle of agave...smells divine and you can add citrus to tacos, salads or nibble in between bites.
Another creative, protein-rich addition: my corn cake bean balls! I adore these as appetizers or as part of a tapas spread. You can even make mushroom bean balls too!
Craving soup and fiesta-style biscuits? Try my spicy Fiesta Jalapeno Carrot Ginger Soup with Cilantro Lime Agave Biscuits.
Pop by your favorite vegan-friendly grocery store and pick up vegan sour cream, vegan chipotle seitan sausages and even some fresh flour or corn tortillas. And don't forget the Daiya or Follow Your Heart vegan cheese to melt over your tacos, enchiladas, burritos or homemade nachos.
The perfect party bevie: White Fruity Fizz Sangria
Have a happy, love-filled fiesta!
