February is the month of LOVE.

Whether you like Valentine’s day or not, it’s always nice to show the ones you love that you care…on any day of the week and it doesn’t have to cost the earth. A simple, thoughtful idea is to cook them a meal. It doesn't matter whether it’s your husband, wife, mum, children or friend. A home-cooked meal with their favourite drink and good conversation is always appreciated. How can Thermos UK help? Well, we have some recipe inspiration for you!

For over a year now, Thermos UK have been running a monthly recipe competition with our social media followers. Each month, recipes are submitted to us and, at the end of the month, we post them on our Facebook and Instagram page, asking our lovely followers to vote for their favourite. The creator of the recipe with the most votes gets to pick two FREE products from our website. In addition, a recipe card is made to go out with all orders and ALL recipes are featured on our website.

Here are three simple recipes that won in our monthly competition that will be perfect for some quality time with a loved one.

Enya's Spiced Sweet Potato & Blue Cheese Ciabatta

This recipe was the last winner of 2022. A delicious vegetarian dish with rich flavours to tickle the taste buds. It only has nine ingredients and takes around 30 minutes to prepare and cook. Ideal when you don’t have a lot of time after a long day at work.

Holly's Coq Au Vin Van

Holly is all about van life and this recipe was inspired by outdoor cooking. It’s one of those recipes where you can throw everything into one pan and let all the flavours combine. This recipe was a HIT on our social media pages with lots of our followers keen to try it. So much so, it won October’s competition last year. If you’re thinking of a romantic night under the stars, this could be the recipe for you.

Ashleen’s Carrot and Thyme Soup

Personally, we think there is nothing cuter than matching Thermos UK food flasks...just saying! Why not fill them with this delicious soup which won September’s recipe competition and head to your favourite place for a walk and some soup al fresco? This soup literally has five ingredients, it’s super easy and super tasty!
