5 Vegan Game Day Snacks for Your Super Bowl Sunday Party (Or Any Party Day)

Whether you bleed team colors or you’re more of a ‘yay sports ball’ type, the Super Bowl (or any other game day) is a great excuse to get together with friends, catch up, (maybe) watch some football, and eat great food. 

Contrary to much advertising, your big game potluck table does not need to be limited to deep-fried, meat-based, and cheese-soaked options. Vegans, vegetarians, and the generally health-conscious can have fun too—and you’ll probably head home feeling a whole lot better than that guy who polished off a couple pounds of boneless wings to wash down his light beer.

To help you put together the ultimate Super Bowl snack spread, we’ve gathered up five of our favorite plant-based, vegan, and gluten-free recipes made with JOI nutbases. We can’t guarantee the right team will win, but hey, good snacks can go a long way. EnJOI!

Vegan Queso Made with JOI: A Crave-Worth Plant-Based Snack from the Kitchen of The Naked Bite’s Chef Amber 

Our friend Chef Amber from plant-forward healthy eating advocates The Naked Bite has come up with a silky smooth, decadent, and savory Vegan Queso that will win over the most stalwart meat-lovers. Better buy a second bag of tortilla chips.

Vegan Snack Attack: A Healthy and Indulgent French Onion Dip Made with JOI


French Onion Dip Made with JOI is creamy, savory, decadent, a little addicting, and definitely about to become one of your regular cravings. We highly recommend a bright and healthy crudité platter to go along with this dip (because we’re fancy), but crackers or good ol’ potato chips are equally delicious pairings.


Creamy Vegan Ranch Dressing


Is there anything ranch doesn’t go with? Okay, there’s lots actually, but when you’ve had a half-time snack attack hit and need something savory, that goes up for debate. This
Creamy Vegan Ranch is a great option for dipping raw veggies, pretzels, chips, or yes—boneless wings. Dunk away!   


Coconut JOI Pops


It’s hard to resist a popsicle, but it’s easy to be turned off by the sugar content of most traditional freezy pop options.
Coconut JOI Pops are a perfect easy-to-make, easy-to-customize mid-game nibble for when you just need a little bite of something sweet. 


Mouth-Watering Banana Bread

It’s not a complete game day spread without some dessert—and this vegan, gluten-free Mouth-Watering Banana Bread will not disappoint. Decadent but not too heavy, it’s a perfect just-decadent-enough option to cap off your game day grazing. We will not judge if you choose to top it with our Vegan Chocolate Frosting.

The Only Vegan Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce You'll Ever Need

The following recipe post was created by Emily of Eat or Drink. Eat or Drink is an allergy-friendly food and lifestyle blog with a focus on eating and living without gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, or peanuts. Emily is a consumer of JOI and quickly fell in love with our product. With her passion for recipe creation Emily wanted to create something special just for JOI. 

What really got me excited about JOI was all the possibilities. Apart from the obvious delicious nut milk it can make, I saw it as a jumping off point for so many vegan or dairy free recipes. I quickly put it to the test in my standard Alfredo sauce recipe. Normally I would have to fuss around with soaking nuts overnight and then make sure my blender got them completely smooth. With JOI I just added a couple spoonfuls and out came delicious, savory, creamy vegan goodness. From there I decided to try something a little different, and oh boy is it good.

This Vegan Pumpkin Alfredo Sauce is incredible. The JOI makes it so incredibly creamy and of course easy to make. I had to stop myself from eating it all with a spoon before I even cooked pasta. And while it does go perfect with pasta, it’s really great on anything. You could even grab a bag of chips, and boom, it’s a delicious dip. This Alfredo Sauce has a warming combination of flavors between the garlic, pumpkin, nutmeg, and pepper. To round it all out and add a cheesy tang I added a little bit of apple cider vinegar. Trust me, you’ll want a double batch of this sauce.

 


Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Yields: 3 Cups Sauce

Ingredients:

1 - 15 oz. can pure pumpkin puree

2/3 cup water

4 tablespoons JOI cashew nutbase

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions: 


In a blender, blend all ingredients starting on medium and working your way up to high. Scrape down sides if necessary. Blend until smooth and creamy.


This sauce can be used on pasta, vegetables, spaghetti squash, zoodles, and even as a dip.


Notes: 

If you are heating the sauce in a pot with pasta or other warm dishes you may need to add a small amount of water to loosen it up while heating.
