A while back I received a question from a Sugar user who was looking for a romantic dinner that didn't break the caloric bank. I decided to share the recipes of the dinner I will be making for my hubbie and me to share. The dishes are easy to make, tasty, light, and complement each other nicely.
Spiced Scallops with Balsamic-Braised Cabbage: The main course features scallops, a food I love but rarely cook, making this dish special. The red cabbage adds color and nutrients to the plate.
Mediterranean Couscous: I love whole wheat couscous and this dish features my fave carb. Easy and quick to make this side dish pairs nicely with spicy seafood.
Arugula-Pomegranate Salad: Adding sliced Bosc pears and goat cheese to arugula and pomegranate makes this salad sing. The vinaigrette is simple and light on olive oil, which makes it lower in calories.
Flourless Chocolate Cake: I have never met a flourless chocolate cake that I didn't like. This cake is truly guiltless and a great way to end a meal.
