Game-Time Snacks: Veggie Takes on Traditional Treats

Gearing up for the big game? As you plan your Super Bowl snacks, consider adding some veggie versions that combine traditional flavors with the benefits of plant-based nutrition. Dr. Erin Campbell of the UR Program for Nutrition in Medicine shares some tasty alternatives worth a try.hummus dip with fresh vegetables

  • Are wings your thing? Why not try Buffalo Cauliflower Bites? These baked, meatless treats are simple to prepare and full of flavor. And you can make them mild or spiced up with extra sauce.
  • Craving a crunch? How about a batch of Sriracha Roasted Chickpeas? Roast this two-ingredient treat ahead of time so they’re ready when you are.
  • Are you a big dipper? Whip up Spinach Ranch Dip a day or two before your bash and serve it alongside a variety of fresh and colorful crudités like carrots sticks, radishes and cucumber slices.

Most importantly, recognize the value of having fun with family and friends as you cheer your favorite team on to victory.
