Game day is almost here -- are you ready? Just because the commercials will be full of junk food doesn't mean you have to wreck your diet. I have 2 menus that are loaded with healthy, vegan party foods that bring the flavor and competition. Your guests won't have a clue that they're vegan, they'll be too busy digging in. Choose your own Super Bowl spread for a day of fun and delicious flavor.
Chili Bar Throwdown!
It's a battle of the Red and White with a chili throwdown. You can make both versions ahead of time and just reheat game day. You can even set up 2 Slow Cookers for hassle-free food; let guests help themselves.
Serve up with a full toppings bar: Guacamole, Pico de Gallo, Crumbly Gluten-Free Cornbread, Nacho "Geez!" Sauce, radish slices, roasted pepper strips, minced onion, charred corn kernels. Just leave room for the ultimate dessert: Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bars. You'll have your guests going bananas for these vegan treats!
Stuffed and Loaded!
It's a battle of the Stuffed Potatoes. In one corner we have traditional Russets with a Broccoli "Geezy!" stuffing. In the other corner, we have Sweet Potatoes with a Southwestern-inspired filling.
Serve with even more potato love from two types of baked fries.
Plus two versions of hummus that do double-duty: Great as appetizers for dipping fresh veggies and whole wheat pita. Also great as creamy toppers for your Stuffed Spuds.
Finish on a light note with kicked up vegan Mexican Chocolate sauce and some healthy, fresh fruit.
