Impress the fussiest of dates this Valentine’s Day

14th Feb 2019

If you’re looking to treat your ‘special spud’ this Valentine’s Day, but aren’t sure what to cook, we have a variety of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan recipes to suit almost every diet and create for a romantic meal for two.

We all know what it’s like to cook for a loved one who has a particular taste in food. It can often be a mine field to find recipes that suit different dietary requirements that don’t compromise on taste or flavour.

Whether your partner is going meat-free, trying to avoid wheat, or is cutting out meat, fish and dairy from their diet, potatoes are your secret weapon as they’re versatile, vegan and totally gluten-free and won’t require you to fork out for an expensive alternative.
