Vegan snack recipes will please all of your friends at your game day viewing party, whether you're watching the Super Bowl, the Puppy Bowl, or the Kitten bowl. They're perfect for movie night and girls' night in, too.
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 nibbles for parties and gatherings. These are some of my favorite vegan snack recipes.
Before I get to the recipes, I want to announce my third cookbook! The Big Book of Vegan Cooking is now available for preorder! It's packed with 175 (yes, 175!) recipes! I’ve included a few easy recipes for those new to plant-based cooking and a bunch of veganized omnivore favorites, as well as some fun dishes I created myself.
In addition to recipes, I’ve included lists of ingredients and equipment to have on hand, as well as tips on how to go vegan, for those who are new to this way of life. I’ve also included a starter menu plan and sample party menus.
