Superbowl party-goers across America are gearing up for some serious snacking this Sunday. Whether you’re hosting your own smorgasbord, or kicking in a dish for someone else’s, chances are your local grocery store is brimming with “all-American” options to help you feed the masses. But before you battle it out for the last jar of cheese dip, check out some of our favorite recipes for a crowd pleasing game day spread.
Ginger Lime Chicken Wings: Skip the store-bought wings and preservative-laden marinades. These flavor-packed wings are naturally sweetened with maple syrup, and get a kick from ginger and lime juice. Because they are baked instead of breaded and fried, they also have a fraction of the calories.
Greek Yogurt Black Bean Dip*: Creamy, savory, and protein-rich, this simple dip is a sure-fire crowd pleaser.
Chipotle Guacamole*: Spice up this party staple with smoky chipotle using this simple, flavorful, and nutrient-rich guac recipe. Serve with carrots and broccoli for a satisfying crunch and an extra nutrient boost.
Mexican Crab Cakes: It’s a finger-food fiesta with these simple but showstopping crab cakes.
Carrot and Quinoa Superfood Hummus*: Hummus gets a makeover when Jennie swaps out garbanzo beans for cooked quinoa, for a more IBS-friendly, fiber-filled dip.
No-Bake Energy Bites: Go nutty with these super fast sweet treats. Almonds, walnuts and hemp seeds provide protein and healthy fat to keep you powered through the fireworks at Katy Perry’s halftime show, and chocolate will hit all the notes to make the crowd roar.
Grass-Fed Sausage Patties: Pack your party with protein with these lean, green patties. Form them into footballs for a festive twist.
Salmon and Sweet Potato Sliders: Who needs buns when you have vitamin-rich sweet potatoes? These salmon sliders are sweet, savory and scrumptious.
Double Chocolate Maple Bacon Cookies: Chocolate? Maple? Bacon? Need we say more? No, but we’re going to anyway. It just gets better with these sweet treats that are also grain-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and naturally-sweetened. They’re sure to satisfy the sweet tooth of every guest, regardless of their dietary restrictions!
Cheddar Parmesan Biscuits: These low-FODMAP, gluten-free biscuits are a rich, cheesy treat for anyone with digestive sensitivities.
Cucumber Canapes: Avocado, smoked salmon and cooling cucumber make these quick bites simple but satisfying.
*For Dipping: Try our Multigrain Roti or Tri-Colored Turmeric Roasted Potatoes and Broccoli.
Fun Fact: Did you know that Superbowl is second only to Thanksgiving for the most food consumed in a single day by Americans. It’s estimated that we will consume over 1 billion chicken wings, 11 million pounds of chips, and 4 million pizzas this Sunday.
