10 Vegan Game Day Snacks Everyone Will Enjoy

While our eyes are glued to the big game on Super Bowl Sunday, we’re just as fixated on the game-day grub. And there’s no better game-day food than nachos. Chips. Beans. Cheese. Salsa. Guac. No doubt, this combination is good, but there is so much more within the realm of snacks to re-excite our taste buds. This year, our snacks aren’t missing out on the action. Not into comfort food? We’ve got the healthy hacks to keep you rallying well into overtime.

Vegan Super Bowl drinks

You’ll need something to wash down all the delectable eats below, and water doesn’t cut it (at least for the spectators … we hope the athletes are hydrating). Our vegan beer guide is a must-have reference while stocking up at the store, but we also like to have a variety for guests who don’t drink or simply prefer a different kind of alcohol. 

Hard kombucha such as Booch Craft is a great move that appeals to a wide range of tastes. For no-ABV beverages, regular kombucha (we love Rowdy Mermaid), canned mocktails from AVEC, and non-alcoholic beers by Athletic Brewing are always welcome.

Drinks in hand, here’s how to win your Super Bowl party with these 10 mouthwatering vegan snacks.

1 Vegan Cheeseburger Tater Tots

From cheeseburger spring rolls to cheeseburger tots, cheeseburgers have become more of a flavor than a distinct food item. These tots embody the burger with a cashew-based, silky cheddar cheese sauce, plant-based ground beef, pickle relish, raw white onions, and a well-aimed drizzle of ketchup and mustard. The only difference between these tots and a cheeseburger: you should eat one of them with a fork.

2 Vegan Pink Beet Hummus

We can’t name any NFL jerseys with a pink color scheme, but that doesn’t mean the hue should be banned from your table. This eye-popping hummus is naturally colored with beets and makes for a wholesome and satisfying dip for chips and veggie sticks.

3 Spicy Vegan Air-fried Buffalo Poppers

Not every Super Bowl item has to be deep-fried. These addictively good tofu bites are crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside, and just need a few minutes in the air fryer. Serve with vegan ranch or an extra dose of buffalo sauce.

5 Golden Vegan Jackfruit Empanadas

7 Baked Vegan Jalapeño Poppers

Warning: these will go fast. We highly recommend making a few more than you expect—at least two to three per guest. These mild peppers are fully loaded with vegan bacon-and-chives-spiked cream cheese then coated in a generous mound of bread crumbs, all drizzled with homemade sriracha aioli.

8 Vegan Bacon Cheddar Jalapeño Dip

Combine jalapeño-spiked cream cheese, vegan mayo, and fistfuls of vegan cheddar cheese into a wonderfully gooey and positively addictive game-day dip. A teaspoon of smoked sea salt adds smoky depth and counterbalances the decadent flavor profile. Serve with tortilla chips or stuff into mini bell peppers for individually portioned dips.
