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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
