Valentine’s day with Merchant Gourmet

Valentine’s day with Merchant Gourmet

Whether you’re spending it with your partner, gal pal or little brother – Valentine’s Day should be filled with love and for us, love means food! Save spending your wages on extravagant gifts this year and spend time cooking in the kitchen. We’ve rounded up a whole day of dishes to keep you and your loved one full of happiness this Valentine’s day.


Breakfast in Bed

Glorious Grains and Sweet Potato Waffles

Impress any guest by making your own waffles using our Simply Cooked Glorious Grains. Add the toppings of your choice, whether it be sweet, savoury or both!


Beluga Lentil Breakfast Burger

Burgers are great at any time of day but we think they’re extra special served first thing in the morning by the one you love. Not many people could resist this beluga lentil treat, served with a kiss!


Lunchin’ with Love

Freekeh Tabbouleh, Halloumi and Pomegranate

Whip up a quick salad for your lunch to leave more time for Valentine’s fun! This Freekeh Tabbouleh takes no time at all and the pomegranate seeds add an extra special topping of pink sparkle.


Stuffed poached peppers with Indian Flavoured Rice & Lentils

These stuffed peppers are fabulous for personalising with the filling of your choice. Add mixed rice & lentils, veggies and spices for a dish you’re proud to serve.


Dinner Date

Smoked paprika, Chorizo and Garlic King Prawns with Spanish Grains and Aioli

Our Smoky-Style Grains need minimal ingredients added to make this authentic Spanish classic. Even more good news, very little washing up!


Mushroom Wellington with Chestnuts and Porcini Sauce

These super indulgent stuffed mushrooms are a fabulous showstopper to serve your guest, without all the hard work! They’re much simpler than they look and taste even better over a glass of your favourite vino.


Dessert Island

Molten Chocolate, Chestnut and Dulce De Leche Mousse with Ice cream and Brandy

It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without a little chocolate, would it? This is the ultimate melt-in the-middle-pud AND it’s gluten-free!


Rosewater & Strawberry Quinoa Pudding with Vanilla Topped Cream

These mini pots will make the perfect finishing touch to your day of indulging. Not too heavy, not too sweet, the hint of rosewater will make up for that bouquet of flowers you ‘forgot’ to pick up!
