While we’d love for you to consider dropping animal products completely and checking out our 10 yummy Super Bowl vegan recipes, we understand that there are others out there not yet ready to make that next big leap. So for all you awesome vegetarians out there (or for those looking to try it), this one is for you!

Here are our picks for some of the best and easiest to prepare vegetarian recipes for the Super Bowl:


Mushroom Caps for Super Bowl appetizers

Fried Olives

Fried Olives can make a huge statement and offer an appealing and appetizing dish as your guests begin to arrive. The recipe is very simple and calls for 50 pitted green olives, drained and dried, 1 cup flour, 2 eggs, beaten, 1 container of Panko breadcrumbs (Japanese style, white not wheat), and 1 cup olive oil. Heat olive oil in a frying pan or a deep fat fryer, dip olives in flour, then eggs and breadcrumbs until thoroughly coated. Fry in oil until golden brown, turning as necessary. Drain on a paper towel or paper bag to remove excess oil. Serve at room temp. for an awesome pre-game appetizer.

Artichoke Feta Bruchetta

This recipe is easy to bite into, delivers on taste, and no one will notice that it is not just vegetarian but vegan-friendly. The ingredients include sourdough bread, garlic cloves, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, white beans, lemon zest, parsely, and vegan feta cheese. A full recipe can be found at SheKnows Miso Vegan.

Apple-stuffed Mushroom Caps

Who would have ever thought of putting apple in mushrooms? I’m not sure who came up with this dish, but it sure is a winner. This recipe makes for 1 ½ dozen stuffed mushrooms. You’ll need: 18 mushrooms, 3 tbsp finely chopped celery, 1 tbsp butter (opt for a vegan version), ½ cup finely chopped apple, 2 tbsp dry breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp finely chopped walnuts, 1 tbsp crumbled blue-cheese, 1 tbsp minced fresh parsley, 2 tsp lemon juice. Remove stems from mushroom caps, then set aside half of the stems and discard leftovers or save for another use. Mince stems and set aside. Saute minced mushrooms and celery in a small skillet with butter. In a separate bowl mix apple, breadcrumbs, walnuts, blue-cheese, parsley and lemon-juice. Place mushroom caps on a greased baking sheet and stuff with apple mixture. Bake for 15-20 minutes (or until mushrooms are tender) at 375 degrees.

Main Vegetarian Super Bowl Dishes

Chili and Garlic Super Bowl recipe

PETA’s Kickoff ‘Chik’n’

PETA has put out a list of their top vegetarian food picks for the super bowl and at the top of the list was this delectable dish. It isn’t a dish that is perfect for everyday as it still uses processed foods, but for a once in a while treat or a party finger food, it works extremely well. The best part of all is that no chicken’s were harmed to make the recipe. It calls for Gardein vegan ‘Chik’n’ strips, mustard, flour, onion powder, pepper, garlic powder, salt, water and canola oil.

Seitan Chili

The best thing about Seitan Chili is that it can be made in approximately 15-20 minutes or you can make it in a slow-cooker all day long. Either way it is bound to turn out delicious. You will need 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 large onion, chopped, 1 large carrot, chopped, 1 large green bell pepper or 2 poblano peppers, seeded, chopped, 4 garlic cloves, minced, 1 to 2 tablespoons chili powder, to taste, 2 tablespoons chipotle in adobo sauce, finely chopped, 1 (28-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes (do not drain), 1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce, 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed, drained, 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed, drained, 2 cups shredded seitan, 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped (leaves only). In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, carrot and pepper until softened. Add in garlic, chipotle, and chili powder stirring to coat veggies. Cook an additional minute before adding tomatoes, tomato sauce, beans, and seitan. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in cilantro after removing from heat. Serve hot by itself in bowls or with multi-grain nacho chips.

Vegetarian Dips for the Super Bowl

Super Bowl dips

Dips are a great tradition for super bowl parties because you can serve them with chips, crackers or veggie trays.

Spinach and Artichoke Dip

No party is complete without spinach and artichoke dip. This recipe takes about 30 minutes and requires a food processor so time management is important when you get ready to serve this divine dip. To make a quick and easy spinach and artichoke dip for your super bowl party you will need; ½ c fresh spinach, ¾ cup Parmesan or soy Parmesan, 2 cups marinated artichoke hearts, drained, ¼ tsp pepper, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 cup mozzarella or vegan mozzarella, grated, oil. Combine everything except ¼ cup Parmesan in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Oil a small baking and pour mixture into it. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and sprinkle leftover Parmesan over top of mixture. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Cool for five minutes and then serve. This dip is delicious with big, uncooked, white mushrooms.

Vegan Planet’s Guacamame

Vegan Planet offers a play on the traditional guacamole dip served at parties with a recipe for Guacamame, a creamy dip that is low in carbs and high in protein. Guacamame uses cooked edamame, ripe avocado, green chilies, fresh lime juice, onion, garlic and cumin. Vegan Planet suggests that it be served with sliced raw vegetables, but multi-grain nacho chips also work well with this dip. Visit Vegan Planet for the full recipe.

Creamy White Bean Veggie Dip

This recipe is so simple to make you might find yourself making it all the time and not just for a special occasion like the super bowl. You will need; 1 15-ounce can of cannellini beans, rinsed and drained, 2 cloves garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 3 tablespoons plain nonfat Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh dill, 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste, fresh dill sprigs for garnish. Place all ingredients except the dill sprigs in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add garnish and serve with veggies, chips, or as a dip for PETA’s Kickoff ‘Chik’n’.

Vegetarian Desserts for the Super Bowl

Super Bowl desserts

There are two important rules for serving up vegetarian desserts for the super bowl; they must be quick to make and deliver on taste. These two desserts live up to both rules.

Sweet Mexican Tortilla Chips

Making a snack-like dessert from tortilla chips is one of the simplest recipes to follow. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut 4 flour tortilla shells like a pizza into 6 slices. Use an additional tortilla or two for each extra person at your party. Lay tortilla slices on a baking sheet and drizzle with 2 tbsps melted margarine. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon. Bake for 10 minutes or until at desired crispness. Serve warm or cooled.

Watermelon Granita with Champagne

End your super bowl party with a classy vegetarian dessert like watermelon granita with champagne. It is sure to be a hit and will make guests want to come back to any party you have with the hopes that you will be serving it. This recipe needs to be made in advance so keep that in mind for your time management. To make this dish you will need; 2 pounds watermelon, seeded and cubed, ½ cup white sugar, 1 cup of champagne, and 4 slices or more of watermelon (one for each guest). Place watermelon cubes and sugar in a blender. Blend for approximately 1 minute. Stir in champagne. Pour mixture into a plastic container and place in freezer. Using a fork stir the mixture in the freezer every 30 minutes for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer and stir well with a fork until it is at the desired consistency. Serve in ice-cream bowls with a watermelon slice as garnish.
