Delicious Vegan Recipes for Super Bowl Sunday Parties
If you’re like me, watching the Super Bowl includes a huge party. But I’m the only vegan among my friends and family who sit together and enjoy those famous commercials.
Because I’m the only vegan, it’s important that I showcase some of the best foods veganism has to offer, as I want to impress my non-vegan friends.
Here are some great vegan recipes I’m bringing to my Super Bowl party this year.
Buffalo Chickpea Game-Day Sub
This chickpea sub is sure to impress. I don’t love my foods super spicy, so I keep the Buffalo sauce to a minimum. If you’re not into a sub, you can mash the chickpeas, add in some delicious vegan chick’n (shred it first!) or jackfruit, and enjoy it as a dip. It’s so easy to make!
Vegan Barbecue Pulled Pork
This is an insanely creative way to enjoy that pulled pork taste without harming any little piggies. Instead of the typical jackfruit, this recipe uses oyster mushrooms for an awesome texture and taste. One of my friends happens to be allergic to jackfruit, so preparing this is one of my favorite—and quick—ways to ensure he can enjoy the food I make.
Vegan Spinach and Artichoke Dip
What is a party without dip? This awesome spinach-artichoke dip pairs well with pita chips or pumpernickel bread (my preference) and is an easy, quick snack for friends who like to munch throughout the game. Even if your team is losing, this dip is sure to bring a smile to your face.
Vegan Street Corn Nachos
Nachos, please! I couldn’t imagine a sporting event without nachos. When we made this in the Mercy For Animals test kitchen, it took us—three people—all of five minutes to eat! As one of those people, I can personally guarantee you’ll love this, and if you hate cilantro, it’s optional. (If you don’t love this, don’t @me.)
You should always have more than one dip at a party, right? I have at least two so I’m sure my guests can choose the one they like more. This simple queso dip is reminiscent of those old Totino’s chips-and-cheese boxes (am I aging myself?) but without any animal products. It’s a win for nostalgia and good food!
These are my go-to event snacks! I’ve made them for barbecues, birthday parties, and even holiday parties. In the past, I always used Gardein ready-made meatballs, but since the creation of the Beyond Burger, I’ve used that too. For variety, swap meatballs for vegan sausage and add some chopped peppers. YUM!
Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
MFA’s peanut butter pie tastes as good as it looks. This six-ingredient recipe uses many of the things vegans stock in their pantries. It is perfect for celebrating when your team wins or for emotionally eating when it loses (guilty!). The presentation alone will make your non-vegan friends drool.
Vegan No Bake Cheesecake
If your friends don’t like peanut butter and chocolate (maybe get some new friends… kidding!), this no-bake vegan cheesecake will hit the spot. I love this with a simple strawberry compote, but you can use any fruit you want. You can even have a cheesecake-topping bar to let your friends choose!
So there you have it. Your Super Bowl party will be one to remember. Now here’s hoping the team you’re rooting for wins!
