How to Make the Perfect Vegan Valentine’s Dinner

Jumpin’ Zach Flash, Oldiez 96.1

February is almost here. And, that not only means we are one more step closer to spring, it also means Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. It’s that time of the year when you scramble to get your sweetheart the perfect gift and figure out what to make for that splendid candlelit dinner. Now, I can’t help you with the gift part of things, but I can help you with an idea on what to make for a delicious dinner on Valentine’s Day. The dish I have in mind is extremely easy to make and it tastes great, too. Oh, and it’s vegan!

So, you’ve picked out the perfect gift, but you don’t have a lot of time to make the Valentine’s dinner. Don’t worry. Here is a nice vegan meal you can make in about 10 minutes.

All right, first you’ll need to buy two cans of dices tomatoes, two cans of Great Northern beans, a bag of pre-washed spinach and some pasta. Make sure you have some Italian seasoning, olive oil, garlic, onions and crushed red pepper (I prefer Avico Brand Utica Grind Crushed Red Pepper) on hand, too.

Now, here is the only time-consuming part of the meal. Cut up the onions and garlic and add to a large frying pan with olive oil. Let it cook a little. Then, add the two cans of tomatoes and the two cans of beans. Season to taste with crushed red pepper and Italian seasoning. Let it cook for about 3-4 minutes on high heat. Add the spinach (to taste). Wait until the spinach has wilted in the pan. Stir it up, and serve over your favorite pasta.

And, there you have it–the perfect vegan dinner for Valentine’s Day. See, I told you it was easy.
