Attending a Super bowl party is like going into a battle of the ages for vegans. Because, if you really think about it, what traditional sports food is vegan friendly? And the answer to that question is practically nothing, nada, zilch, ZERO!
Let’s break it down, shall we? Pretend you have been chosen by your friends to host the Super Bowl party, aka, you’re the friend with the best T.V. Now, one of your friends is vegan; what would you make him or her?
You can’t serve them pizza, mozzarella sticks, buttered pretzels, creamy dips, or a cheese plate; all of those contain dairy, a no-no for vegans. You can’t serve them mini hot dogs, buffalo wings, or a cold cut platter; all of those contain meat, another no-no for vegans.
But wait, you can always serve them veggies and dip, right? Sorry to burst you bubble, but no. The reason for this is because almost every vegetable dip on the market contains dairy or eggs.
So what are you going to serve your vegan friend? Well, your best bet is to just make something that is vegan friendly in your own kitchen. Yes, this takes some time and work, but you wouldn’t want your friend to feel left out of the fun, right?…
…Don’t answer that.
Here are some great vegan friendly Super Bowl recipes.
