With the Super Bowl fast approaching, rivalries are par for the course. Fighting over the gameday menu, however, is utterly bad form. Fortunately, these three vegan favorites make it easy to create a coffee table spread that will have everyone sated — even if their team can’t quite hack it.
Baked Vietnamese Fries
What happens when you add cilantro, basil, sweet chili sauce, and vegan mayo to fries? As Vegan Richa reveals, you get some of the best loaded potatoes in the world. Cashew cream, bean sprouts, and toasted nuts give this one a smooth base to complement the kick while adding some protein to boot.
Peanut Chickpea Burgers (Also Gluten-free)
These burgers take chickpeas, peanuts, lime, and oats to new heights and bring your guests along for the ride. You can follow Anja Cass’ recipe or try the Deryn Macey version — both require less than 30 minutes and grill up quite beautifully. Best of all, they appeal to both celiac disease sufferers and carnivores who might be wary about tackling unfamiliar spreads.
‘Cheesy,’ ‘Bacony’ Stuffed Mushrooms
Bacon and cheese are two of the main things meat-eaters gripe about when trying vegan fare. This easy recipe satisfies everyone, including pigs and cows. Unlike some alternatives, you also don’t have to spend time running nuts through a blender or slicing and grilling eggplant to get the cream cheese and bacon substitutes — both are readily available in regular stores.
