Valentine’s Day is so close and I feel like I dropped the ball on planning something for dinner Matt this year (I’m making him some Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats for breakfast so at least I have that going for me). Not that we do anything elaborate for Valentine’s Day – I don’t like flowers and chocolate isn’t always vegan Β – but I like to do at least a little something special for him. I wanted a dish I could make quickly but that still said “love” so I figured a red meal would do the trick.

Vegan Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Tomato sauce, while tasty, just seemed a little boring for Valentine’s Day so I went with red peppers. My Vegan Roasted Red Pepper SauceΒ is made with just a few basic ingredients and only takes about 10 minutes to make (depending on how fast you chop onions). Throw the sauce on some pasta, top with some fresh parsley and my vegan parmesan and you’re ready for a tasty Valentine’s Day dinner the whole family can enjoy.

    1. I made a box of pasta and it didn’t really cover all of it fully (at least for the type of pasta I used above) so I’d say maybe 3/4 of a box depending on how saucy you like your pasta. I like my pasta really saucy. πŸ™‚

  1. Mary Ellen this is lovely and would make a nice change for our working lunch. We don’t do anything for Valentines, never have really – but I do like playing with my food – so expect some red coloured heart shaped grub coming from my kitchen for the fun of it.

  2. Well this is the perfect way to say I love you! Especially in the super cute heart shaped bowl πŸ˜‰ I hate to admit that I’m not a huge fan of roasted red peppers, but I know if I add in extra nooch, I’ll love it =) Happy Galentine’s Day girl!

  3. I love this and I love how you don’t have tomatoes in it! So awesome! I know what you mean too- I didn’t feel entirely prepared this year either lol. Hope you enjoyed your Valentine’s day!
