When I was growing up, the Super Bowl was all about Texas chili and nachos topped with lots of meat. I’ve become a vegetarian since then, but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped enjoying hearty, delicious Super Bowl food, and you don’t have to either.
From dips to meatless chilis to double-bean nachos, we’ve got you covered on ideas for the vegetarians at the party this year. Full screen Recipe by Cookie and Kate
Here I have linked the recipes for
some of my personal favorite recipe sites for each, but you can put your own spin on any of these. Appetizers/Snacks Crispy baked potato wedges Potatoes. Need I say more?? Spinach and artichoke dip There are plenty of ways to make this classic, but here is one of my faves. Double bean nachos These are easy and quick to throw together and delicious. I leave off the lettuce and add jalapeños. Cheesy jalapeño corn dip (vegan) This recipe is completely vegan. If you want the cheese, you can use regular cheese instead of vegan cheese, which is what I do because I am a cheese fiend. Full screen Recipe by Minimalist Baker 7-layer dip (vegan) Give me ALL the layers of tastiness. Again, if you are a dairy-eater, you can easily just use regular cheese for this one, too. Guacamole I live in Spain and I cannot tell you how disappointing what they consider guacamole is. Just smushed-up avocado. No, sir. That’s just the beginning. Did you know that America consumes about 8 million POUNDS of guac on Super Bowl Sunday? Do it right, y'all. Jen’s personal recipe: Ingredients (amount dependent on how much guac you want): Avocados (smashed well, not chunky), chopped onions, minced garlic, diced tomatoes (fresh, not canned), chopped jalapeños, lime juice, bunch cilantro, sea salt, black pepper : Smash the avocados with a fork and then add in the veggies and seasonings and mix together. Add lime juice from lime. Taste and see if it needs more of anything. That’s it! Recipe Baked jalapeño poppers I haven’t tried these with the chips on top, but it sounds good! Main Dishes Vegetarian Chili I love Cookie and Kate’s recipes. For this one, I leave out the carrots and celery because I’m not big on those veggies being in a chili. Red peppers, onions, and beans are a must for any good chili though! Vegan meatballs Thank goodness for meatless meatball options. Spinach Artichoke Enchiladas Or just anything-enchiladas is a good idea, any time. This homemade red sauce though…drool! I make it all the time and put it on all kinds of other foods, from tacos to nachos, even taco salads! Vegetarian stuffed peppers Bell peppers are delicious all on their own, but stuff ‘em with some Mexican flavors and they improve ten-fold. Desserts
Okay, so most desserts are already vegetarian, but I just love food and couldn’t resist sharing these, too.
Chocolate peanutbutter bars Anything with chocolate and PB is going to be good, and these have the added benefit of being no-bake! Reese’s Footballs Again, I say…chocolate and PB!!!
