Hearty Valentine’s Day Recipes with Libby’s®

Roses are red, violets are blue, and Libby’s® Fruit and Vegetables are here for you!

 

With Valentine’s Day here and the stores filled with cards, flowers and treats, the pressure can build when thinking about what to do for dinner on this love-filled day.

 

While many may think the day should be made up of swanky restaurants, fancy cocktails, and a night full of dancing, we have a better idea – a home cooked, candle-lit dinner in the comfort of your own home!

 

Whether you’re cooking for friends, family or a significant other, keep the meal tasty with Libby’s® Canned Vegetables. Not only will you save yourself preparation time, you will create a delicious and nutritious meal that’s affordable.

 

Libby’s® ingredients make any dish easy to prepare, whether it’s a dip, salad, dinner or dessert. With the simple opening of a can, you can experience a great tasting meal packed with veggies that add flavour and nutrition.

 

Spread the food, spread the love…here are some simple tips to follow this Valentine’s Day when preparing your meal:

  • Keep it simple: At the end of the day, we want a meal that looks good and tastes great. Try making a few small, healthy dishes, like soup or salad. You may be surprised at how quickly you can whip together these simple and nutritious dishes.
  • For the main, keep it tame: Try preparing a main course that has easy preparation and familiar ingredients. A roast chicken with mixed vegetables atop a bed of whole grains is easy, delicious and nutritious.
  • Don’t over think it: Set the table nicely, dim the lights, savor the meal you prepared, and enjoy the company you have.
