When I plan ahead for vegan recipes for the Super Bowl and other parties, I consider a lot of variables. First, and foremost, who are my guests or where am I going to watch the BIG GAME. Most often than not, I enjoy entertaining for a variety of reasons. One, I can control the food options, which means I make it so I can eat. And, I try to make my vegan and carnivore guests happy.
Although the majority of the time I serve only vegan options, that fool my friends, I always have people bring a dish, regardless of its origin to share. From time to time, though, they bring shrimp, cheese, and meat which sits right next to my beautiful veggies dishes.
But, vegan recipes for the Super Bowl can be healthy, vegan, and make everyone at your party happy.
For instance, you can easily create Appetizer Boards and Platters to Please a Crowd and Vegan Bruschetta (pictured above). Not only does it supply a variety of vegetables, grilled and raw, but the hummus it’s a great dip for the center.
MY FAVORITE VEGAN SUPER BOWL RECIPES CAN BE PREPPED AHEAD
Regardless if you are hosting or attending a party, and of the below vegan recipes are perfect for any crowd. Any time I attend a party and bring a vegan dish, it seems to disappear from the table more often than the other food at the table. As a result, I generally bring two dishes, so I can guarantee I can eat something before my dish vanishes.
These little meatballs, though simple to make, are so tasty, you won’t believe how fast they disappear from the crockpot. And, the meat-eaters are the first to eat and rave about how yummy they are. I absolutely LOVE my crockpot, I actually own two. And, since I have two crockpots, I make a Vegan Chili Recipe to put in the other one.
Even though this recipe has alternative meat, it can be made without it as well. Since it is made it the crockpot, it is the perfect dish to take to a party or keep on warm on your buffet table at home.
But, if you don’t have a crockpot, and you want a more gourmet chili, may I suggest my Vegan White Bean Chili that clearly stands apart from other chili recipes. In fact, this one is so popular with my friends, they ask for it when I come to a party.
My new favorite vegan recipes for the Super Bowl is definitely tater tot nachos. Although these are homemade tater tots, Alexia tater tots are low in fat, vegan, and quick to heat in the oven. Top with your favorite nacho toppings, and watch the crowd go wild.
With only 76 calories a serving, and made of all veggies, this artichoke spinach dip is a favorite vegan recipe for the Super Bowl. Served with whole-grain crackers or vegetables, it won’t last long on the table. You can make this dip ahead of time, and heat it right before your guests arrive.
Regardless of my Super Bowl Day menu, I always make a big batch of Skinny Nacho “Cheese” Sauce not only to have for a dip, but it also goes in the Skinny “Cheesy” Spinach Artichoke Dip…Fat-Free and Fabulous and my Skinny Chili ‘Cheese’ Dip. So, one nacho cheese recipe prepares three different appetizers.
When in doubt, combine chili and Skinny Nacho “Cheese” Sauce to make a spectacular chili cheese dip. Again, this crockpot dip can be made ahead of time and kept warm in the crockpot.
And, since vegan recipes for the Super Bowl are all about dips and finger foods, how about a beautiful greek dip?
Mostly raw, this dish takes minutes to put together. Serve with pita chips or fresh veggies, and watch it disappear before your eyes. Usually, I make a double batch because my friends love this dip.
Another great ingredient to use for vegan super bowl recipes is mushrooms. Some easy mushroom favorite, you are sure to enjoy are all easy to make, and bring along to your party.
Bite-sized and delicious, these savory little gems can be made ahead of time and heated in mini muffin pans in minutes. Make sure you make a lot of these; they go quickly.
Another mushroom favorite everyone loves is Oil-Free Rosemary and Thyme Mushroom Bruschetta.
Simple, yet elegant, these little bruschetta bites have incredible flavor. With very few ingredients, this mushroom appetizer can also be made ahead of time and quickly thrown together at the last minute.
Because we love all things hot at my house, here are a few of our favorite vegan Super Bowl recipe for the spicy!
Although chicken wings are on most menus for the Super Bowl, I make vegan buffalo tempeh strips instead. Served with a yummy, tangy vegan bleu cheese dressing, these babies are a crowd stopper! And if you like it hot and sassy, the next recipe should be right up your alley.
Tangy and spicy, these baked cauliflower bites are so good, you will be coming back for more. The breading is gluten-free, and the sauce is homemade spicy goodness.
Simple and of so spicy, this pepper jelly recipe is so simple it requires little to no planning. Made with Skinny Vegan Cream Cheese, all you need is your favorite pepper jelly and some crackers. Of course, store-bought vegan cream cheese can be substituted for the homemade version. Trader Joes, for example, carries a great pepper jelly.
Who doesn’t love 7 layered taco dip? If you are hosting kids, they love this dip with tortilla chips or veggies. It looks and tastes just like the real deal! And if you are having a Mexican theme for your party, don’t forget the Skinny Pico de Gallo.
Although most people serve salsa, I prefer homemade pico de gallo. It goes with Skinny Nacho “Cheese” Sauce, Skinny Chili ‘Cheese’ Dip, and it’s great on Vegan Chili Recipe and Skinny Vegan Potato Skins.
These little bite-sized treats are easy to make and beautiful on a plate. All you need is some vegan pastry dough, hummus, cucumber, onion, tomato, and a kalamata olive.
Or, if you would like to offer a variety of Mediterranean flavors on one plate, try making a tray full of vegan goodies.
Filled with hummus, olives, grape tomatoes, artichokes, tabouli, cucumbers, and pit bread for dipping.
And last, but not least, don’t forget the guests with a sweet tooth. So, offer a little chocolate love to your guests while they watch the Super Bowl.
What a great way to clean the palate and cheer on your favorite team. These bite-sized chocolate-dipped strawberries are perfect finger food for your guests. Not only can they be made in advance, but they are also easy to make. And if strawberries aren’t your thing, try some Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls.
Pop my version of a peanut butter cup in your mouth. With half the calories and less fat and sugar, even Super Bowl dessert can be enjoyed by all.
If you are hosting the Super Bowl or any event, put your mind at ease and make one or more vegan recipes for the Super Bowl. You won’t be disappointed.
