Dinner for two or four is the perfect occasion to try out new and inventive ideas. And this vegetarian menu is a flavourful option to dish up. The main event, a simple baked tomato risotto with goat cheese and spinach, accompanied by a colourful and protein-rich salad is the perfect follow-up to the crispy tofu starter. So, grab a bottle of chilled white wine, sit down with your Valentine, and enjoy a little something different tonight.
