Favorite Plant-Based Super Bowl Recipes

Whether you're in to win it, or just love a reason to have a party, Super Bowl parties are always as much about the food as they are about the game. Don't get called for a personal foul by serving up foods that contain lots of unhealthy beef, pork, chicken, and cheese. This year, sack all the unhealthy and unkind dishes that give Super Bowl parties a bad name and cook up some crowd-pleasers using some of our favorite plant-based recipes instead. Oh, and don't worry about getting benched in the kitchen or needing to call in special teams, these are all fairly simple to make and serve, so let's get to it!

BBQ Jackfruit Nachos

BBQ Jackfruit Nachos take your average nachos up a notch. Tender, spiced jackfruit, crunchy coleslaw, salsa, and cashew sour cream will have all your guests coming back for seconds–and thirds, so make a big batch of these and watch them disappear.

Fully Loaded Vegan Potato Skins: Gameday demands decadent, loaded potato skins. Made with coconut “bacon”, store-bought vegan cheese, and dairy-free sour cream, these hearty spuds leave nothing on the field.

stuffed mushrooms

Walnut and Kale Stuffed Mushrooms: It's just not a party without a platter of sizzling, crispy stuffed mushrooms. Making them with super-healthy ingredients takes the shame out of going back for seconds…and thirds.

Sausage and Pepper Calzones: With so many options for ingredients and fillings, nothing is lost by making calzones vegan. Sausage and Pepper Calzones is just one tasty way to go. Stuff them with your favorite ingredients and enjoy them your way.

Buffalo Cauliflower

Buffalo Cauliflower: Superbowl fans alone are responsible for the consumption of over one billion wings during this annual sports-fest. If you could get the heat and flavor without the cruelty, wouldn’t that feel better?

Wheatball Subs: Seitan is made from wheat flour and found in most healthy grocery stores. When you mix it with familiar flavors, you've got a healthy and meat-free meatball.

Tempeh and Peppers

Tempeh & Peppers: This healthy and cruelty-free version of sausage and peppers will definitely fake out any opponents. We use all the authentic flavorings that make this dish a family favorite but send the greasy sausage to the sidelines.

Tempeh Reuben: Heart-healthy tempeh replaces mounds of corned beef here. Add creamy avocado, sauerkraut, and a quick vegan dressing, and your guests might be rushing to get seconds instead of passing the plate to the others.

sweet potato black bean chili

Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili: Chili is a staple at Super Bowl parties, and this one is vibrant with fresh flavors. It's hearty enough to be the superstar on its own or team it up with baked potatoes for a twist. The only way you can fumble this recipe is by not making enough!

Super Duper Simple Nachos: In a survey this year, nachos were ranked number one, not wings, as the number Super Bowl finger food. Chips can be a blank canvas for your favorite toppings, so you won't even need a playbook to whip these up in a jiffy.

So pull a quarterback sneak at this year's party and serve up some super-delicious vegan Super Bowl snacks. I bet the other team won't even know what hit 'em.
