5 Great Vegan Date Night Dinner Ideas

Happy Friday! For me, Friday night is often date night. While going out to eat is fun, cooking together and eating at home is much more intimate. Cooking for someone else is also a great way to show your appreciation for your partner—and we all want to do that, don’t we?

My boyfriend isn’t vegan, but he is down to live in a vegan house, which is loving of him. Since I laid down that law, I also tend to be the one who cooks 5 or 6 nights of the week. Recently, my guy made a comment about how we  often cook and eat the same things week after week. Hm, what’s that, you don’t want peppered tempeh steaks for the third Friday in a row? Since that comment, I’ve been trying to upgrade my recipe repertoire. In doing mad recipe research, I thought I’d share some of my finds with you. You’re welcome.

Below is a rundown of 5 delicious vegan recipes from our friends across the interwebs. Tell me, what’s your go-to vegan date night dish?

Comfort food at its finest! These are adorable, easy, and very impressive. When cooking for someone else, you want to seem impressive.
