Planning a party for this Sunday’s Super Bowl rematch between the New England Patriots and New York Giants? Don’t forget your vegetarian guests while preparing the menu! Even if you and your friends typically eat meat, adding a few vegetarian options can dramatically shrink the footprint of your party. So, get creative in the kitchen, and try one of these five vegetarian recipes that are sure to be a hit at your game-day fiesta.
1. Vegetable Spring Rolls
Spring rolls are perfect for the light-snackers at your party, and they can be prepared the night before to cut back on prep time.
Head to your local grocer, and find a package of pre-made spring roll pastry. Fill with sautéed vegetables like carrots, beans and cabbage for an Asian-inspired snack.
For step-by-step instructions, check out this easy and authentic spring roll recipe from Edible Garden blogger Nags.
Serve your spring rolls with soy sauce, or add an unexpected Southern touch by whipping up some spicy barbecue dip.
To prepare your dip, simply combine one cup of prepared barbecue sauce with 1/2 cup of honey, four tablespoons of hot sauce and one tablespoon of crushed red chili peppers for a sweet and spicy bite.
Whip up the whole recipe the night before, and place on serving trays on game day.
