Are you ready for some football? Whether you’re cheering for the Falcons or Patriots , the commercials, or maybe you’re more into the Kitten Bowl – it’s ALL about the food! Full disclosure, as any long suffering Bills fan will tell you, we are NOT rooting for the Patriots. But no matter your team, it’s fun to serve team themed treats for the Super Bowl.
In the South it’s all about the Sweet Tea so toast the Falcons with Sweet Tea Bourbon Cocktails or its non-alcoholic version.
Boiled Peanuts are a great Atlanta snack to have on hand as you cheer on the Falcons. And how about these main meal ideas turned vegan:
Southern Vegan Chicken Sandwiches
Fish Sliders with Spicy Mango Slaw
Southern Black Eyed Pea Burgers
If you’re a Patriots fan there’s nothing like New England Baked Beans or Hearts of Palm Lobster Rolls
And there’s always chili at my Super bowl Parties. Check out all the chili recipes at the DairyFreeGina website like Pineapple Chili and Pumpkin Chili to name a few exotic ones.
Nachos anyone? Try my dairy free Sweet Potato Loaded Nachos topped with all of your favorites – mine include olives, hot pepper rings, salsa, avocado, black beans, Daiya cheese- add these and anything else you like.
Pizza – try a dairy free, gluten free version using GFJules Pizza Mix. Making pizza is so easy with this mix and it tastes oh so yummy. I love topping my pizza with a variety of veggies and Daiya cheese.
And if you’re having pizza you have to have wings. And yes I’m from the birthplace of wings and the team that went to the Super Bowl 4x and lost, but don’t remind me of that—instead try Vegan Buffalo Wings. Your guests will never know how healthy this version is.
Our friends at Canyon Bakehouse have a fun Football Brownie recipe to help you end the night. Just be sure to use dairy free frosting to keep it safe.
Even if your team doesn’t win you’ll be a winner when you bring all these dairy free faves to the party you host or attend. Remember, if you are attending a Super Bowl party, be sure to bring your favorite dairy free dishes to ensure there’s something for you to safely eat. Keep your allergy safe dishes on a separate end of the table and bring utensils to avoid cross contamination. If you’re at a party and you are unsure of the ingredients in a dish, don’t eat it. Stick with the food you brought. It’s always better to play safe than sorry. After all, you want to be well to discuss the commercials the next day.
