Delicious Vegan Super Bowl Finger Food!
If you haven’t tried cauliflower buffalo wings, have you even really lived?! Smothered in hot sauce, one bite of this spicy treat will have you reaching for more! Not only is this dish incredibly easy to make (it doesn’t require any frying!), it’s also incredibly nutritious! Cauliflower is packed with much-need vitamins and minerals: vitamin C, fiber, potassium, cancer-fighting compounds — the list goes on! Please your grumbling belly *and* nourish your body by throwing together a batch of this delicious dish. Add a few sticks of celery on the side and a generous portion of vegan ranch dressing and you’ll be well on your way to enjoying your new favorite meal!
This delicious recipe for savory mini burgers from The Minimalist Baker should be at the very top of your game day menu! Requiring only seven ingredients, each of these hearty sliders are loaded with over four grams of protein! With such ingredients as kidney beans, quinoa, mushrooms, and onions, this dish is sure to hit all the right spots! And you can always stack on extra protein by topping them off with a few pieces of vegan bacon!
This dairy-free take on a truly classic dish will win over even your nonvegan friends! The creamy blend of artichoke hearts, spinach, and cashews make *the* perfect dip to go with your favorite brand of tortilla chips. Plus, the mouthwatering dip is low-cholesterol and low-fat — allowing you to indulge guilt-free!
Another must-have for the big game is a bowl of warm, chunky chili. This hearty recipe from Oh She Glows is soy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, and refined sugar-free, and it even includes a separate recipe for homemade cashew sour cream! Eat it as is or with tortilla chips–just don’t be surprised if you have to go back for a second helping!
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind dish to serve at your Super Bowl party, *this* is it! A mash-up between a quesadilla and a pizza, the Pizzadilla is pure marinara, (faux) cheesy goodness wrapped snug in a tortilla. Get creative with your toppings and throw in some vegan sausage, vegan bacon, olives — whatever you fancy! Just be prepared to share because your friends are DEF going to want a slice!
Aptly dubbed the “best guacamole ever,” this recipe is an absolute no-brainer as far as party staples are concerned. What sets this guac recipe apart from all of the others is its tasty array of seasonings and the fact that it’s chock-full of grape tomatoes and corn. Yum!
Refreshing Vegan Super Bowl Drinks!
It’s not a party until you’ve got a fresh cup of freshly squeezed lemonade on deck! And a few sips of this Cretan specialty will have you dreaming of the breathtaking islands of Greece! It’s a delightful concoction of Raki (a popular alcoholic beverage and national drink of Crete), mint, and lemons, and is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser — just drink responsibly!
The Minimalist Bakers have outdone themselves yet again! Requiring only three ingredients (yes, three ingredients!), this margarita recipe can be whipped up in under 15 minutes! It’s naturally sweet and tangy — what’s not to enjoy?!
If you’re a fan of red wine, you should definitely whip up a pitcher (or two?!) of this authentic Spanish sangria! This recipe is super easy to make and only calls for five ingredients: red wine, oranges, orange liqueur, apples, and Prosecco. The only hard part of making it will be having to wait four hours for it to chill!
This is the perfect beverage for you to sip on throughout the morning of Super Bowl Sunday! And if you’ve never tried kombucha, you should definitely make it a point to try out this recipe from Emilie Eats ASAP! For the newcomers, kombucha reigns supreme as far as healthy drinks go because it aids in digestion and helps to promote a healthy gut. Just top off this blend of strawberry kombucha, vegan-friendly champagne (or sparkling cider), and orange juice with a few strawberries and you’ll have a drink fit to impress any guest!
