Valentines Day is just around the corner. Restaurants will be full of couples dining out. For a special evening for the two of you this Valentines Day why not surprise your partner with a delicious meal at home. Here are some of my top Romantic Dinner for Two ideas.
I love making my husband a special meal on Valentines Day, rather than going out to a restaurant. With some candlelight , soft dinner music & our best china our Valentines dinners at home have been really memorable.
To plan the Romantic Dinner for Two menus, I like to make one or two dishes that are really fragrant & combine these with a starter salad, a beautiful bottle of wine, and, of course, something decadent for dessert.
One of my favorite Romantic Dinners is this Indonesian Pineapple Curry over Cauliflower Rice, paired with either my Live Well Spinach Salad or a Papaya Avocado Salad. As the Indonesian Pineapple Curry is a bit on the spicy side, I’m going to treat us to a really nice bottle of Shiraz. This meal would also be delicious with a dry Chardonnay or Rose.
Romantic Dinner for Two Ideas
Indonesian Pineapple Curry
½ c. light coconut milk
½ c. Pineapple juice
4-5 tbsp. Asian Pineapple Sauce
1-2 TBSP curry powder (depending on your taste)
1 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tbsp. shredded coconut
16-20 oz. chicken, scallops, prawns or firm tofu
½ can water bamboo shoots
½ can baby corn
1 c. chopped fresh or canned pineapple
2 Romano tomatoes
3 c. fresh spinach
Stir the first 3 ingredients on medium heat until the sauce starts bubbling and then add in the remaining 3 ingredients. Set aside while you chop up your protein and vegetable
In a Wok or Skillet, Stir fry in 1 tbsp. Olive or coconut oil
16-20 oz. of chicken, lean pork, halibut, prawns, scallops, or firm tofu
When almost cooked, add in baby corn and bamboo shoots. Stir fry for 1-2 minutes then add in the sauce. Once reheated, add pineapple, cut up tomatoes, and finally add the fresh spinach on top. Stir fry just until the spinach starts to wilt. It should be bright green when you serve.
Serve just the way it is or over cauliflower, basmati, or brown rice.
