How to Throw an Awesome Vegetarian Super Bowl Party

I’m not a vegetarian, but wings aren’t exactly my thing. Plus, it’s a debbie downer to think about all the chickens it takes to feed the massive population of football-watching wing-eaters in our country. This year, we’re doing something different on SideDish. We’re helping you incorporate more veggies into your Super Bowl Sunday, so when Monday comes, you won’t feel so clogged up. See? We’re looking out for you. And you toilet. Fiber is necesito, my friends.

Here are some ideas we’ve gathered:

APPETIZERS

Quinoa pizza bites by Chocolate Covered Katie. A super cheesy alternative. (Or you could go with these roasted cherry tomato pizza poppers by Better Homes and Gardens.)

This beer cheese soup from Garden & Gun. It asks for a cup of chicken stock, but you can substitute it with vegetable.
