What Do Vegans Eat on Game Day?
Game day delights need to score with everyone, no matter which team they support. These winning recipes will please vegans and non-vegans alike!
Cheesy Vegan Nachos
If nachos are your ticket, make them with Cashew Cheddar Cheese Sauce or Nutvetta. If you prefer almonds to cashews, make your nachos using Not-So Cheese Sauce. For a unique twist on traditional nachos, try Six Layer Tempeh Nachos.
Two vegan starters that always score big on any field are Mushroom Palmiers and Stuffed Mushrooms. Additionally, since every time-out needs a good dip and cheeseball, don’t forget the Artichoke & Spinach Dip and Walnut Encrusted Cheeseball. If your home team includes some of the “I like it hot” crowd, wow them with Mango Sriracha Cauliflower Nuggets.
Make-A-Head Game Day Meals
For no interference make-a-head meals try Tess’ Tempeh Chili or Glenn’s Enchilada Casserole. You won’t be flipping a coin when you have guacamole and cashew cream ready for your guests. For the non-traditionalist, try a Potato Bar or Living Lasagna.
Game Day Vegan Burgers
Game Day Vegan Pizza
If you like pizza, make a marvelous Tofu & Spinach Galette. You can also make your own pizza with store bought dairy-free dough, vegan cheese shreds and the toppings of your choice. Or, purchase frozen prepared vegan pizzas like those offered by Daiya, Tofurky and Amy’s brands. Whatever you serve, be sure to have sides of fresh cut veggies salsa & sour cream for your cheering crowd.
