While the holiday itself may be polarizing, we can probably all agree that love is worth celebrating – whether that love be for a partner, friends and family, or simply good food. And no celebration is complete without making and enjoying some of our favorite recipes – so in honor of this Saturday, we’ve created a gluten-free Valentine’s Day menu sure to delight you and your loved ones.
Fig and Goat Cheese Polenta Bites
This super-simple yet seriously delicious appetizer showcases creamy goat cheese, seasonal flavors like figs and walnuts, and ready-made Ancient Harvest Polenta for maximum ease – so you can spend less time preparing your meal, and more time enjoying your company.
This fresh and flavorful salad makes a delightful palate cleanser between richer courses. Ancient Harvest Tri-Color Harmony Blend Quinoa, meanwhile, adds substantial heft and intriguing texture.
Gluten-Free Spaghetti alla Carbonara
A nutritious take on an Italian classic, this Spaghetti alla Carbonara may lack gluten but definitely not decadent flavor. It only takes 20 minutes to make and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser – whether you are in fact serving a crowd, or just an intimate party of two.
Quinoa Almond Thumbprint Cookies with Roasted Strawberries
Nearly as ubiquitous as chocolate to Valentine’s Day, strawberries are a sweetly festive addition to the menu. Make these cookies ahead of time to serve on their own or alongside a scoop of gelato or sorbet for the perfect ending to a leisurely meal.
