Spice Things Up with this Vegan Valentine’s Day Meal
If your sweetheart is looking to heat things up in your relationship (yeah we dig that Kelly Clarkson jam too), add some spice to the night with Vevan P’Jack! This creamy, zesty cheese adds a little something extra to every dish and lets your main squeeze know they’re extra special too.

Main: Our Ratatouille Bake w/ P’Jack-Melts skillet dish is both impressive looking and impressively easy! Find your freshest produce – zucchinis, eggplants, and tomatoes (oh my!) – and simply slice and arrange them in a spiral design with our P’Jack-Melts before drenching them in a rich marinara and baking for one hour.
Side: Whip up a side of our Easy Cheesy Biscuits made with P’Jack-Melts for a super satisfying combo! Consider halving this Fresh Fiesta Cobb Salad for right-sized side salads.
