Who says you need beefy loaded nachos and buffalo wings to throw a crowd-wowing Super Bowl party? You can easily make meatless versions of game-day classics that carnivores and vegetarians alike will love (and don't forget the guacamole, snack mix, onion rings, and ice cream). Below are a few of our favorite party-worthy eats.
Wings Nobody will miss the meat when you serve up seitan hot wings. They're tender on the inside, crispy on the outside! Remember to cut up some celery sticks and pour a little bowl of your favorite creamy dressing, such as blue cheese or ranch.
Chili Adding seitan, mushrooms, and beans makes this ultimate vegan chili "meaty" and super-hearty (24 grams protein per serving!). You can prepare it a day or two ahead. In a hurry? Try ready-in-30-minutes poblano white chili (pictured below).
Stuffed Potatoes Fill them with whatever you like. We're partial to loaded red potatoes topped with veggie bacon, sour cream, Cheddar, and chives. Pick the smallest potatoes you can find—they make for the best finger food.
Sliders Mini-burgers are great for feeding a crowd. If you're short on time, go for frozen beefless sliders. Otherwise, make your own mushroom sliders (pictured below) or black bean and edamame sliders (our veg answer to Sloppy Joes!).
