Valentine’s Day, the holiday of love. And how do we show affection here at Plated? With food of course! We’ve got you covered with the ultimate Valentine’s Day menu no matter how you’re celebrating. Enjoy our recipes for fun and festive starters, show-stopping entrées, and sweet treats for dessert.
For a Romantic Evening With That Special Someone
Appetizer: Kale And Farro Salad
You can’t celebrate Valentine’s Day without at least one pink-colored food! Start the evening with one of our favorite kale salads that packs a sweet-and-savory, nutty, cheese-y flavor.
Entrée: Seared Steak
A fancy steak dinner for two without the waiters in white. Enjoy this decadent dish with a cheffy red wine jus and crispy roasted potatoes, but save room for dessert.
Dessert: Raspberry-Chocolate Mousse Tarts
Round out your V-Day meal with a no-bake treat that packs so much love into one little cup. Chocolate mousse, dark chocolate drizzle, raspberry jam, and candied pecans. Enough said.
For a Rom-Com Marathon with Friends
Appetizer: Charcuterie Board
No matter what the occasion, a charcuterie board is always a crowd-pleaser. Mix and match your ideal board (don’t forget red accents like dried berries and jam) and let everyone dig in.
If Valentine’s Day means a night in with friends, go DIY-style and let everyone build their own tacos. Try a spicy turkey filling or veg-friendly cauliflower—both with a loving accent from red onions.
Dessert: Raspberry Brownies
It’s not Valentine’s Day without chocolate. Classic brownies get cheffy with a swirl of raspberry jam and crunchy pecans that will have you going back for seconds.
For the Whole Family
Appetizer: Za’atar Carrot, Kale, and Bulgur Salad
Beets and white beans are a match made in heaven in this festive, veggie-centric salad. Two words: pink hummus. Need we say more?
Entrée: Truffled Grilled Cheese
After the kids sort through their homemade valentines dig into this oldie but goodie with a little flair. Who can say no to heart-shaped grilled cheese…with truffle oil?
Dessert: Chili-Dusted Frozen Hot Chocolate
This chocolate-lovers dessert puts a Plated spin on one of New York’s most iconic desserts: frozen hot chocolate and comes together in just a few steps.
