Vegan Snacks for Game Day
Street-Cart Pretzels from NYC Vegan by Michael Suchman and Ethan Ciment – Soft pretzels are always a sports fan favorite, and thanks to this recipe you don’t have to travel to a stadium to snack on them!
Baked Vegetable Pakoras from Vegan Richa’s Everyday Kitchen by Richa Hingle – These pakoras make a delicious and quick snack. Chop up the vegetables, fold in the chickpea flour and spices, and bake. And then comes the hardest part—waiting.
Plantain Chips with Orange Aioli from Vegan Mexico by Jason Wyrick – Plantain chips, which are basically potato chips made with plantains, are common all throughout Central America. Crema de ajo is a fusion of Mediterranean garlic dips, like aioli and toum, with the Yucatecan twist of sour orange juice. It pairs perfect with plantain chips.
Roasted Poblano Guacamole from Vegan Tacos by Jason Wyrick. Guacamole is always a game day favorite, and this guac is so good that could be a food ambassador for avocados everywhere. It has complexity and depth from the roasted poblano garlic paste, creaminess from the avocado, and brightness from the fresh lime.
Classic Hummus from Everyday Vegan Eats by Zsu Dever. Hummus can be a vegan’s best friend, and it’s always a crowd pleaser at parties. Zsu has a secret trick to ensure her hummus comes out smooth and silky, making restaurant-quality hummus an everyday possibility.
Sriracha Tempeh Sliders with Vegan Ranch Dressing from The Lusty Vegan by Ayinde Howell and Zoe Eisenberg – These little sandwiches are perfect for parties, and you can replace the sriracha with BBQ sauce if it’s too hot you.
White Bean and Spinach Quesadillas from Cook the Pantry by Robin Robertson – Frozen spinach and canned white beans combine with garlic and spices to make a delectable filling for these hearty quesadillas. No cheese needed. Serve with your favorite salsa.
BBQ Jack Sandwiches from Cook the Pantry by Robin Robertson – If your game day guests are in the mood for something more hearty than a snack, you can’t go wrong with these sandwiches. Even omnivores will agree that jackfruit makes an excellent sandwich filling.
Spinach Artichoke Pizza from Everyday Vegan Eats by Zsu Dever – This incredible pie tastes just like spinach-artchoke dip spread over a pizza. With the added optional vegan cheese, it is extra ooey and gooey – just like pizza should be!
