You probably know that oysters are an aphrodisiac, but as a vegetarian, that doesn't do you much good. Here are some vegetarian aphrodisiacs to consider for Valentine's day or some other occasion for a romantic meal.
A deliciously smooth, raw soup.
Quinoa is quick and easy to prepare, and it adds a subtle but wonderful flavor to vegetables.
When you cook your own beans, they are one of the healthiest things out there, and they are delicious with just a pinch of salt. They are also wonderful paired with feta and toasted walnuts, as in this simple bean salad.
Warm "bacon" contrasts nicely with crisp lettuce and ripe tomato, and makes a delicious, nutritious vegan sandwich.
Chilled soups are wonderful in the summertime, and they tend to be incredibly easy to prepare. This spicy, creamy avocado soup is no exception.
Is it a dip or a condiment? That depends - are you eating it as a snack with tortilla chips or on top of a sandwich or burrito? Either way, guacamole is delicious, nutritious, and full of the good kind of fat.
You can either make these burritos yourself or put the ingredients on the table and let everyone build their own.
Smoky and fresh tasting thanks to orange and lime juice.
Whether you're on the run or just don't feel like cooking something, a vegetarian sandwich is just the thing: quick, easy, and as healthy as you care to make it.
