Vegan Aphrodisiacs

The Kiss, by Gustav Klimt

Valentine's Day is one of my all-time favorite holidays. I can't think of anything better or more beautiful to celebrate than love in all its forms.

Despite the fact that it's not normally a food-centric occasion, there are some foods known to have some wonderfully romantic aphrodisiac properties. Here are a few yummy vegan recipes featuring these inspiring ingredients. Try them for your next romantic dinner, today or any day!

Chocolate: Raw Chocolate Avocado Pudding
Asparagus: Asparagus & White Bean Pesto Tart
Coffee: Mascarpone Clouds
Basil: Basil-Mint Pesto
Grapes: Red & Green Grape Granitas with Muscat
Strawberries: Strawberry-Banana Crepes
Artichokes: Globe Artichokes in lemon and garlic
Ginger: Ginger Snap Cocktail
Black Beans: Black Beans & Quinoa with Chipotle Raspberry Sauce
Rosemary: Oranges Poached in Riesling & Rosemary Syrup
Pine Nuts: Pignoli-Almond Cookies
Figs: Roasted figs with aromatic couscous
Libations: Vanilla Pecan Bourbon Balls 

and of course...

Avocados: Avocado & Mango Salad with Passion Fruit Vinaigrette

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
