Valentine’s Dinner for Two
In a season trademarked by bone-chilling temperatures and often icy attitudes, Valentine’s Day appears as a welcome reason to get warm and cozy with the one you love. While chocolates and cards are always appreciated on this holiday, we know the real way to your special someone’s heart is through a home-cooked meal. This year, make a reservation for two at your dining room table and let some of our favorite tomato-inspired dishes lead the way.
Get into the sharing mood with our Sautéed Mexican Mussels with Chorizo and Tequila recipe as your appetizer. This delicious seafood dish, from our chef partner Chef Shannon Bard, is perfected by a few diced Backyard Farms Tomatoes on the Vine.
For your main course, twirl the night away with a hearty plate of Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Tomato Mushroom Sauce. Chef Mary Ann Esposito cooks fresh Backyard Farms Tomatoes on the Vine with mushrooms and corn for this recipe, rather than resorting to canned sauce. Sprinkle on a little Parmigiano Reggiano cheese to top off this romantic Italian dish.
Finally, what could be a better way for two fools in love to wrap up the night than this Tomato Fool recipe? Chef Rayment of the Seaport Hotel blew us away with this unique dessert, using Backyard Farms Tomaotes on the Vine along with a mix of flavors. Sweet yet tangy, this creamy yogurt will leave you both with a smile.
You can be sure that you’re off to a good start this Valentine’s Day with these delicious recipes using fresh tomatoes. We’ll leave the rest of the plan to steal their heart up to you!
