2. Spinach, artichoke and caramelised leek tart

It's quite astounding what you can do with six ingredients. Thank you veggie much.


3. Saffron and pea risotto

Those delicate strands of flavour are worth more than their weight in gold and give this ambrosial risotto tons of extra oooh factor.


4. Chill-roasted tofu with pomegranate relish

Perfect pomegranate jewels really brighten up this spicy dish.


5. Sweet potato vichyssoise

We can't stop saying vichyssoise... it just sounds so cheffy. And this creamy chilled soup is topped with ginger-kissed pumpkin seeds. Oh stop it, you.


6. Beetroot and mozzarella hearts

Show you're intending to stick around by putting these beetroots down. Aww.


7. White mushroom pizza

Fungus might not seem immediately romantic, agreed, but this white mushroom pizza is adoration personified.


8. S'mores

Indoor s'mores, to be precise. Chocolate and marshmallow in one melting pot eaten with digestive biscuits. Give us more. Lots more.
