It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal. ~ Joaquin…
Super Bowl Sunday isn’t just about football, it’s also about food. And whether you’re hosting game day or you’re bringing food somewhere else, our delicious round-up of vegan party food snacks, meals, and desserts will get you the W.
6 Vegan Snacks That Will Get You On The Board in the
It’s important to keep your energy up through the first half so you can cheer your heart out for your team in the fourth quarter! Well, that’s the excuse you can say to yourself when you can’t stop reaching for the snack table with these delicious first-half appetizers. So, let’s get started!
1. Easy Perfect Hummus
The number of things that would taste delicious dipped in this hummus is similar number to how many players there are on a professional football team. Point is, whether you prefer carrots, crackers, or french fries in your hummus, our recipe will still work like a great passing play. Our version of hummus also happens to be lower in fat, salt, and price than grocery store hummus. And about as easy to make as it is to buy! Whip up a batch of delicious hummus with our quick recipe: EASY HUMMUS!
2. Can’t Stop Eating this Bean Dip
This is the kind of bean dip that you will selfishly hide in the other room so other people will stop eating it. We certainly won’t judge if you do. But, if you bring this bean dip and let other people eat it, we guarantee you’ll be the MVP of the night. Get the recipe here: “Can’t Stop Eating This Bean Dip”
3. Nacho Cheese Sauce
This cheese sauce is just as effective as a snack as a really good kicker is in those crucial moments of a game. It’s cheesy, creamy, filling, and actually healthy. No one is going to believe that carrots, potatoes, and nutritional yeast could taste so good on chips (or whatever you like to dip in your cheese). So whether this is your Mahomes or Kittle of snacks, you’re going to wish you made a second batch! Get ready and get a cheesy batch made: Vegan Nacho Cheese Sauce
4. Smoky Jalapeno Black Bean Dip
Our friend Brandi over at The Vegan 8 makes this Vegan Oil-free Smoky Jalapeno Black Bean Dip. It’s a perfect party dip! So easy and delicious, and basically fat-free. Dairy-free and gluten-free, too! (And, this might be really good with that Nacho Cheese Sauce. Just sayin’!) https://thevegan8.com/2015/10/05/smoky-jalapeno-black-bean-dip/
5. Loaded Sweet Potatoes
A loaded sweet potato is like getting that crucial extra point after a touchdown; the touchdown itself is great, but that extra point takes it right over the top. We love sweet potatoes, and they will always taste amazing just plain and simple. But, when you load it up with delicious ingredients, it takes it right over the top. https://www.fullofbeans.us/sweet-potatoes-at-the-ready/
6. Vegan Dilly Pesto Salad
Becky at Glue and Glitter serves up this Vegan pesto potato salad with rich, dill pesto instead of mayo – a definite crowd-pleaser, whether you’re vegan or not! The perfect addition to the game day table! https://www.glueandglitter.com/2015/12/28/dilly-pesto-potato-salad/
6 Halftime Meals That Are Better Than A Pep Talk From Coach
Let’s be real, halftime was made for people watching the game to take a break and eat an actual meal. Okay, maybe it was to give the players time to re-group, but it still works as a food break. And as satisfying as our snacks were, our halftime selection is even better than a pep talk from the coach.
1. Black Bean Burgers
The vegan black bean burger is an easy and healthy way to satisfy the burger craving and can be as versatile as the classic beef burger without the fat, cholesterol, and guilt. Plus, if your team is struggling, digging into these burgers will make it all better! This is something you’ll want to have prepared ahead of time so that the burgers are ready cooking game time – just like the offensive line! Check out the recipe Right Here!
2. Vegan Curry “Chicken” Salad
Some people prefer defense, and other people prefer offense. Some people prefer sandwiches, and other people just don’t know what they’re missing. Our vegan curried chicken salad is the cruelty-free way to bring your sandwich to the next level. Its base of creamy cannelloni beans makes it a winner in any league. Think of it as going from college football sandwiches to NFL sandwiches. And we know NFL-level sandwich making. https://www.fullofbeans.us/vegan-chicken-salad/
3. Fat-free Vegan Baked Beans
These baked beans will make you think of that perfect summer barbecue. Except, just like football, these baked beans should happen all year long. Our fat-free baked beans are healthier for you than typical baked beans but still satisfy the craving. Paired with some amazing cornbread it will get you to the end zone! Are you ready for Baked Beans?
4. Black Bean and Veggie Enchiladas
Our enchiladas could easily feed an entire football team. Okay, maybe just the offensive line. Well, it depends on how hungry they are. Point is, this batch of enchiladas are easy to put together and great when trying to feed a large group. (But if you are making them for a football team, consider making two batches!) https://www.fullofbeans.us/veggie-enchiladas/
5. Best Vegan Chili (seriously, it really is)
This chili is that crucial two-point conversion that puts one team just a little bit ahead of the other. In our personal opinion, no matter how many meat-based chilis our vegan chili is put up against, ours will still be just a little bit ahead of the others. The recipe is super easy, and super delicious. Perfect for Super Bowl Sunday! The BEST Vegan Chili Ever!
6. Seven Layer Taco Dip
Second Half Desserts That Deserve A Victory Lap
Whether your team is losing and you need some dessert to make it feel better, or your team is winning and you need some dessert to celebrate, our vegan cake and cookies will hit the spot.
1. One Bowl Chocolate Cakes
Think of our chocolate cake like that running back who never fails. He makes everything look easy and when he gets that TD, it’s more delicious than you can even believe. Except these chocolate cakes don’t just look easy to make, they are actually that easy. All you need to mix these together are a handful of ingredients, and one mixing bowl. Sprinkle a little confectioner’s sugar on top when they’re done baking and you’ll have the touchdown of cakes. https://www.fullofbeans.us/one-bowl-vegan-chocolate-cake/
2. Gluten-free Peanut butter Cookies
These peanut butter cookies are like that 90-yard Hail Mary pass all the way down the field to take the victory. Particularly if you are the one who brought the cookies to game-day. Even if everything else goes horribly wrong, these cookies will win the day. And with the exception of those with peanut allergies (sorry, guys), these cookies will cover every other dietary restriction.
