Vegan date night
Whip up a feast for two with this vegan mezze selection for date night. Start with pizza - cook Goodfellas Vegan Falafel Pizza and cut into strips. Top with finely chopped flat-leaf parsley and sliced spring onion.
For sticky veggie meatballs, cook Bird’s Eye Meat Free Swedish Style Balls. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and fry finely chopped garlic and red onion for 10 mins until softened. Add the cooked meatballs and drizzle with pomegranate molasses, toss until evenly coated. Tip onto a serving bowl, drizzle with a little coconut yoghurt and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.
Next, serve Aunt Bessie’s homestyle mini roasties with a spicy tomato sauce. Whilst the roasties are cooking, heat a little olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and cook finely sliced garlic and red chilli for 2 mins. Add tinned chopped tomatoes and a pinch of smoked paprika. Simmer for 10-15 mins. Serve the roast potatoes with the spicy tomato sauce, sprinkled with finely chopped parsley.
Finish the mezze with a bright pea dip and serve with warm flatbreads for dipping. Cook Bird’s Eye Garden Peas then blitz with a handful of coriander, lemon zest and a squeeze of juice, a drizzle of olive oil and a grind of black pepper to form a rough dip. Scatter with toasted pine nuts to serve.
