You Can’t Beet These Vegan Valentine’s Day Recipes

You Can’t Beet These Vegan Valentine’s Day Recipes

Rather than spending Valentine’s Day looking for parking, waiting in line to pick up food from restaurants, or ordering from pre-fixed limited menus, stay home and get creative in the kitchen with your significant other. It will be a romantic time and a food fight may or may not take place, depending on who decides to commit to the first chocolate smear or lettuce toss.

Given that February is American Heart Month, we thought we’d provide you with a few recipes that contain beets. We know that everyone is not a beet lover, but beets are juicy, red, and are great for nurturing the heart. They provide a rich, earthy flavor to dishes and you can even use their juice to finger-paint a Valentine’s Day card.

Here’s a little tip: always make a card from scratch. Take a piece of paper, fold it in half, write “I Love You” inside, and cut a thin beet slice into a heart for a cool stamp. We aren’t saying that this card is the key to unlocking the mysteries of love, but you can throw us a shout out if you do make this and things start heating up.
