How to prepare a healthy plant-based romantic dinner for two


A romantic dinner requires a special setting. Not only scented candles, rose petals or romantic music can help build the atmosphere of love and romance. What appears on the table is also essential. When preparing a romantic dinner, pay attention to plants that have aroma, taste, and appearance that will make it an unforgettable evening.


It is good if dinner for two not only looks beautiful and tastes delicious, but is also healthy. Don’t think that healthy meals are “boring” and non-aromatic. There are many ideas on how to prepare dishes that not only create the right atmosphere but also your well-being.

Health properties

It can be a great idea to prepare a light vegetable salad. For its preparation, it is worth using vegetables and fruits, which, apart from being of high nutritional value, have been recognized as natural aphrodisiacs for many years. Appropriately selected spices may also be useful, as they will enrich the taste and aroma of our dishes.

  • Figs

They can be served fresh or dried. If you decide on the second version, you should look for dried fruit that does not contain sugar, oil, and preservatives. Figs are characterized by a high content of calcium, which is why they are especially recommended for people on a vegan or lactose-free diet. In addition, they are a source of potassium and dietary fiber. It is worth adding them, for example, to a salad, because are considered natural aphrodisiac.

  • Strawberries

They are a rich source of vitamin C as well as dietary fiber. As a result, they have a positive effect on the appearance of the skin (vitamin C is essential for collagen synthesis) and protect the body against the harmful effects of oxidative stress. The presence of dietary fiber means that they have a positive effect on the functioning of the intestines. Interestingly, strawberries are considered an aphrodisiac – especially in combination with chocolate (preferably bitter), which also belongs to products with aphrodisiac properties.

  • Asparagus

If you prepare a romantic dinner in the summer, pay attention to asparagus. They are a valued aphrodisiac, especially in French cuisine. In addition, they are a good source of vitamin K, vitamin C, folate, and also antioxidants.

  • Pumpkin

If a romantic dinner takes place in the fall months, you can use a pumpkin to prepare it. It is considered a symbol of fertility, abundance and longevity. Both its flesh and seeds are valuable, as they abound in zinc – a mineral that has a beneficial effect on libido and male fertility. We can also find large amounts of beta-carotene responsible for the beautiful appearance of the skin, the proper functioning of the eye and immune system.

  • Bananas

If you plan to prepare a fruit salad or fruit in chocolate, bananas will be a good choice. They are a source of tryptophan, which is essential for the production of the “happiness hormone” or serotonin. In addition, they provide potassium – an element important for the smooth functioning of the heart.

  • Spices

When preparing romantic menu spices with health-promoting and aphrodisiac properties may also be useful. These include cinnamon, which in addition to being an aphrodisiac, helps maintain normal blood glucose levels. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect. Other spices treated as aphrodisiacs include, among others ginger, savory, vanilla, lovage and cardamom.


Culinary properties

How can we use individual aphrodisiacs to prepare a romantic plant dinner? Some examples are given below.

  • Figs – fresh fruit can be used to prepare a delicious and healthy salad. You can add arugula, avocado, mozzarella cheese, and a sauce made with olive oil, honey, and your favorite spices. You can also try a different set, with walnuts and goat cheese.
  • Strawberries – they can be served both as an addition to salads and in the form of fruit dipped in chocolate (preferably bitter). We can prepare the salad by combining fruit with lamb’s lettuce, ricotta cheese, and almond flakes.
  • Asparagus – it’s a good idea to use them to prepare an aromatic cream soup. You can add a little nutmeg to it, which is also classified as an aphrodisiac.
  • Cinnamon – perfect as an addition to romantic desserts (e.g. baked apples) and hot drinks.


If you want a romantic dinner to be both delicious and healthy, it’s a good idea to choose ingredients that are also classified as natural aphrodisiacs. Instead of heavy and fatty dishes, it is worth choosing, for example, light salads, soups, creams, or properly composed desserts. Remember that the spices we use to prepare a romantic dinner are also important. Some of them have been classified as natural aphrodisiacs for years, which is worth using.
