My vegan Valentine

Brunch recipes for the vegan (and vegan-curious) romantic.

Spend this Valentine’s Day cooking up a romantic brunch at home, together

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, many people are finalizing plans to celebrate their love over a romantic meal at one of Vancouver’s fine restaurants. Most places offer a set menu for this special night, limiting menu choices, and even dining times, in hopes of serving as many lovebirds as possible. This can be challenging for you if you have dietary concerns, not to mention less than enjoyable if you’re being rushed out the door.

Why not cook something special together at home? This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday—perfect for a cozy brunch for two. Try this deliciously romantic brunch menu, which is free of animal products, full of romance-enhancing foods and fun to make together.
