8 Tasty Vegetarian Big Game Recipes

January 31, 2023

The most anticipated event of football season is just around the corner, and everyone is planning their Big Game event. From dogs and burgers to wings, meat often takes center field at sports-watching events, leaving vegans and vegetarians on the bench. That’s a party foul—so resolve to make a change in your snack lineup this year.

With a little help from the Primal Kitchen team and our delectable, no-dairy condiments & sauces, veggie fare can suit up and kick off any Big Game bash. Whether you’re leisurely lounging with a family member or two, partying potluck-style at a friend’s house, or hosting the whole team, these vegetarian and vegan recipes will be sure to please at your next football watch party.

Tackling Cleaned-up Classics

Sometimes, you want a comforting and familiar dish on the snack field (aka your sideboard or dining table). These ingenious twists on game day staples like wings and nachos offer an elevated, veggie-forward version of the stadium foods you crave. Make a batch for the whole bunch or whip up a smaller amount just for your plant-based MVPs.

Put Flavor on the Board

Without fries, your Big Game Day get-together might not score big points. Paired with our tasty, cleaned-up condiments, these crisp and crunchy staples are a major part of our shareable snack boards. Whether you fry ‘em old-school, crisp ‘em up in the air fryer, or dish ‘em up hot from the oven, these delicious potato sticks are the perfect partner for fresh veggies and dairy-free dips.

Frying Under the Radar

Last but definitely not least, there are the chips. An integral component of any game day party play, chips do double-duty as snack quarterbacks and dip-dunkers. Keep it basic with our savory, salty homemade potato chips or venture out-of-the-box with crunchy gluten-free penne chips paired with tangy, zesty Arrabbiata sauce.
