I’m not a sporty person. I have no idea whose team is doing what, but I do know that there’s a big sports ball match coming up soon. And I know that a lot of snacks are consumed when people are watching said match. Since I am a snack fan – and chances that while I’m might not be watching a game, I will probably be snacking in front of something on the television – I thought I’d share some of my favorite nibbles for parties and gatherings.
10 Vegan Snack Recipes for Game Day
It seems that spicy snacks and sports go hand-in-hand. Buffalo Cauliflower Bites have become one of my favorite party snacks, and they’re one that both vegans and omnivores can’t get enough of.
My recipe for Seitan Skewers with Chimichurri and Jalapeno Lime Aioli may look a little to time consuming for game day snacking, but the seitan can be made ahead of time, or store-bought seitan can be used instead.
These Mustard-Coated Oven Fries are highly addictive, so you may want to make a double batch.
Super Bowl Sunday is a big day for avocados. It’s estimated that 80 million pounds of avocados are consumed each year at this time. That’s a whole lotta guacamole! Avocado Salsa Verde combines everyone’s favorite dip with salsa verde for an extra tasty treat.
My Easy-Peasy Five Layer Dip has become my go-to snack for parities. It’s so popular that omnivore friends have made this vegan version for their own parties because they know it tasts so good. My guests always expect this dip when I throw a party, and I’m now afraid that if I don’t make it, there will be an uprising!
What’s a party without chips? Kale chip newbies may initially turn up their noses at the green snack, but I have won over may naysayers with these tasty snacks. Green Goddess Kale Chips and Cheesy Kale Chips are both favorites with my friends.
Tomato Tartlets might seem a little too fancy for sports-related gatherings, but they’re super tasty, and they’re sure to impress your guests.
If you’re in the mood for a heartier snack, Chipotle Tempeh Pizza is the way to go. The heat of the chipotle peppers is cooled down by the herbed cashew cheese, and the tempeh gives each slice a hearty bite.
