The most love-filled day of the year is nearly here! There’s nothing more romantic than a home-cooked dinner for two, flickering candlelight and all. Our tool of choice to help us prep our Valentine’s Day feast this year? The Panasonic 3 in 1 Steam Oven, which boasts powerful high-density steam that can be used alone or in combination with grill or microwave cooking to create quick, easy, convenient and mood-setting meals for two. Here’s what’s on our steamy Panasonic 3 in 1 Steam Oven menu this Valentine’s Day:
steamed mussels with garlic. Move over oysters, ancient Grecians placed mussels among seafoods that were emblems of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Scientifically speaking, these little bivalves provide lean protein, essential for sustained energy for a night of passion, as well as manganese, iron, selenium and zinc—all essential for a healthy libido. In this shellfish dish, mussels steamed by the Panasonic 3 in 1 Steam Oven mingle in perfect harmony with garlic and a nice, dry white wine.
apricot nectar chicken. In the English court of King James I, apricots were commonly served as an aphrodisiac treat. While on the other side of the world, Australian aboriginals used the fruit in various ways to stimulate desire. In our home, we’re using our Panasonic 3 in 1 Steam Oven to whip up a delicious chicken dinner using both dried apricots and apricot nectar for a double dose of love.
italian almond tart. We’re skipping the chocolate in favour of almonds, regarded through antiquity as fertility symbols. Poets and scribes believed the aroma of almond aroused passion in females. Today, researchers say these not-quite-nuts provide high doses of vitamin E, magnesium and fibre, which all contribute to an aphrodisiac effect. All of that said, we’re hoping this Italian almond tart recipe, ready courtesy of the Panasonic 3 in 1 Steam Oven in less than 30 minutes provides a dose of Valentine’s Day amore!
These and many other steamy recipes (think snacks, soups, sides and beyond) are available in the handy cook book that comes with every Panasonic 3 in 1 Steam Oven. Find out how you could win one of your very own, below! —Noa Nichol
