14 vegan Super Bowl recipes that will make even your meat-lover friends drool
The Super Bowl, as much as we love it, is not known for being especially vegan-friendly. For a lot of people, Super Bowl party snacks mean creamy dips, chicken wings, mini meatballs, and ALL the cheese. That’s all well and good, but if you’re vegan, you often find yourself pretty hungry.
To ensure that doesn’t happen, take some time to whip up your own vegan Super Bowl recipes (or just make one for that special vegan in your life!).

Some are a little more work-intensive than others, so pick whatever works for your Super Bowl Sunday schedule. Now, get ready to show everyone that you definitely don’t need cheese and meat to have a mouth-watering game day dish.
