We don't like football. I actually kind of hate it; I have my whole life. I would rather watch 24 hours of Billy Mays infomercials than watch a football game. I've always been like this, I can't help it.
I do love a "game day" menu though. A few weeks ago, when all the TV specials about game day food were on, and the internet started spewing food lists, I began to craaaave junk foods. I wanted all the fried mozzerella, wings, and dips my body could handle. Well, I decided to take a bit of a healthier approach, and try some recipes I'd been eyeing for a while for a Firefly marathon. It was entirely vegetarian, with several vegan dishes, but it was so hearty and delicious you couldn't possibly miss the meat.
BBQ Tofu Nachos--I didn't follow this recipe exactly, because I didn't feel like making another trip to the grocery story. (vegan if you don't add cheese)
Better Jalapeno Poppers-- Again, improvised with what I had, so my version wasn't this exact recipe.
Cauliflower "Wings" w/ Roasted Garlic & Feta Ranch-- I may start eating all my vegetables buffalo style. I was leery about the ketchup addition to the wing sauce, but it somehow worked and is delicious. I don't think I broke my califlower into large enough pieces. They were really good, but a little overcooked following this recipe. I wanted some crunch left. Next time, I will probably do ten minutes and ten minutes (instead of 20 and 10.) Depending on your wing sauce, the cauliflower is vegan. (Ranch recipe tomorrow.)
Baked Veggie Eggrolls--Super simple and easy, vegan as long as your wrappers don't have egg. (The ones I can find at my store all have egg, so it's just vegetarian.) Recipe later this week.
