Delicious & Easy Recipes For Vegan Game Day Snacks
Whether you’re a football, baseball, basketball, or cricket fan, there’s always a new sport to watch every season—and that calls for a celebratory watch party! If you ascribe to a plant-based or vegan lifestyle, however, typical game day snacks can be more disappointing than seeing your favorite team lose. Lucky for you, we have some easy game day snack ideas that are not only vegan and plant-based, but are sure to win the hearts of all your friends, no matter what diet (or team!) they love.
Vegan Cheese Board
As far as easy game day snacks to make, cheese boards are one of the most popular. They’re so simple but beautiful to look at—and eat. Start by picking a few of your favorite vegan cheeses. Maybe add a soft one, an aged one, an herb-one, or an aged one. As you add the rest of the ingredients, add pops of color—like green grapes to contrast yellow or white cheeses, or red grapes. Colorful jams are another idea—just so long as it’s not all the same color! And don’t forget the dips and spreads, such as…
Vegan Spinach Dip
This dip is so creamy, it can stand on its own as one of your vegan game day snacks or go with a charcuterie board. It’s a really simple process too—just sautee some onions, garlic, and spinach in a pan. Then add a tasty mixture of vegan cream cheese and mayo. You can even make your own vegan cream cheese with cashews if you want to go extra-fancy. For presentation, serve it in a bread bowl using gluten-free or plant-based bread.
The Best Guacamole
This is another one of our winning vegan snack ideas. All you need are some avocados, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, jalapeno peppers, garlic, limes, and sea salt. This recipe relies on the freshness of the ingredients—make sure you get ripe avocados, red tomatoes, and freshly-picked cilantro. Mash everything up, mix it together, and voila—you’ve got delicious guacamole ready in minutes!
Plant Snacks’ Chips and Crackers
Of course, none of these recipes would be complete without some delicious chips and crackers to go with them. One of the best easy vegan snacks are Plant Snacks’ own Tortilla Chips and Plant Thins—a plant-based cracker alternative. Though they may be vegan, they are mighty in flavor. They come in classic tastes like Lime, Nacho, Cheddar, and Sea Salt—perfect to stack on a cheese board or scoop up dip or guacamole with. And they take no preparation whatsoever—just order a bag, open it, and boom—instant snack!
The best part is, Plant Snacks are just as healthy as they are tasty. They have three grams of protein and fiber per serving, along with ingredients like whole ground corn and sunflower oil. You and your non-vegan friends won’t even be able to tell the difference between Plant Snacks and regular chips.
