|Meatless Monday Recipe Roundup: Make It a Vegan Valentine's Day|
|Written by Andrea Manitsas|
Nothing says "I love you" like "hey, I slaved over this dessert all day." Not that you'll need a whole day to create any of these vegan sweets (but who needs to know that?). Quick, simple, thoughtful and romantic, drop some dairy-free desserts of love off at mom's, woo your boo or nibble with your pals as you peruse OkCupid. It doesn't matter. The blogs are a flutter with sweets, so if you're feeling the love, put some into one of these scrumptuous vegan recipes. They'll taste all the better for it.
If breakfast in bed is your style, how about this Chocolate Bread Pudding Breakfast Cake from Family Fresh Cooking? It looks absolutely sinful while managing to be absolutely not.
There's something incredibly sexy about spoon-fed ice cream, no? Add to that the homemade factor, and we think you've got wow. Delightful Delicacies taught us how to make our own aptly-colored Red Raspberry Ice Cream this week, and we're stoked about it.
Cookies and truffles are the easiest to tote around and bestow your charm upon the world. (Who needs Valentines; hand out treats!) These Peanut Butter Cookies from The Incuisition are your simplest bet with a completely manageable recipe. Fancy it up a bit, and give out these Chocolate Black Bean Truffles from So Good & Tasty.
Get even more involved with this recipe from Rose, Water & Thyme for a Chocolate Tart with A Hazelnut Crust. Like she says, "Make this tart… it’s the perfect treat to either wallow in your sorrows or make someone tempted by your seductive ways."
