The Super Bowl is next weekend. I’m not much of a football fan during the regular season (baseball girl over here), but I do enjoy the festivities around football playoffs and especially the Super Bowl. The only problem is… I don’t want to leave my seat during the game in case I miss something major. And I don’t want to get up during the commercials for obvious reasons, so it ends up being a sitting-fest with so much delicious food within reach! (I usually get up during the sports commentary – that’s the least entertaining for me)!
My Soft Pretzels w. IPA Beer Cheese Dip has become my go-to potluck recipe for watching sports, but I always like to bring a healthy dish along with that indulgent deliciousness. The easiest option is carrots, pretzels, and my favorite (usually store-bought) hummus. It’s so easy and yet it’s usually a pretty major hit with the crowd. Pretzels and hummus is one of the absolute tastiest combinations after all!
If you’re looking for something a little more involved and filling, however, try one of these healthy Super Bowl appetizer recipes that err on the side of lower in fat or lower in calories than most traditional game day food. Don’t be fooled, however, they certainly aren’t lower in flavor by any means. Nor are they difficult to make! I’ve noted those that are good for certain dietary restrictions as well (i.e. vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free). Since there are usually a lot of people at parties, somebody always need something…
Roasted Cauliflower Hummus | Vegan, Gluten Free
Tomatillo + Quinoa Guacamole Dip | Vegetarian, Gluten Free
Roasted Red Bell Pepper Toasts | Vegetarian
Sweet Potato Hummus | Vegan, Gluten Free
7 Layer Sweet Potato Bean Dip | Vegan, Gluten Free
Make one of these recipes? I’d love to see how it turned out.
