Because your tastebuds also deserve a touchdown this Super Bowl Sunday, I’ve put together a roundup of some of my favorite plant based, vegan, and big batch super bowls from In My Bowl’s past to help you take your game day celebration to the next level. Spotlighting seasonal, vibrant, healthful, and budget friendly recipes, everyone munching’s a winner. May the odds be ever in your team’s favor, x
Tomato Basil Spaghetti Squash Bake // A healthful take on Chicago’s deep dish pizza casserole, this Tomato Basil Spaghetti Squash Bake spotlights those same Italian flavors, that overtly casual, comforting, casserole mentality, while utilizing seasonally available, all natural ingredients. Made with roasted and pulled spaghetti squash, a simple basil infused cashew ‘cheese’, fire roasted chunky tomatoes, and Italian seasoned and protein rich seitan, this vegan spaghetti squash bake is the perfect way to gather your friends around your television and table.
Creamy Pumpkin Mac N’ Cashew Cheese // Redefining cheesy, this simple vegan Mac is made with a silky and rich cashew sauce base, packed to the brim with B-vitamin and protein rich nutritional yeast, basil and sage, and dijon mustard. Paired with the warmth of cinnamon and nutmeg and the natural sweetness of the aptly neon orange pumpkin, say hello to not-so-stick-to-your ribs comfort.
Fire Roasted Squash ‘Spaghetti’ // A medley of spaghetti squash pasta, adorned with fire roasted tomatoes, briny and wrinkled black olives, wilted spinach, and creamy cannellini – think true game day perfection. We serve ours atop and alongside the crustiest sourdough – pro tip: make sure to slice it really thick for dunking.
Chunky Tomato Chili Fusili // A (very) budget friendly combination of dried lentils and brown rice, canned cannellini beans, and diced tomatoes, this Chunky Tomato Chili, tossed with whole wheat fusilli pasta, requires only minutes of chopping, simmering to dreamy perfection while you bop about doing your game day thing, making enough serve a hungry crowd and then some. Don’t forget the corny cornbread donuts!
Warm Tomato, White Bean, and Sourdough Salad // Made with crisped sourdough, the sweetest roasted cherry tomatoes, and a subtle hint of creamy coconut, I’m most drawn to the ease of the one-skillet meal, everything into the pot, made complete with vibrant vegetables, grains, fiber and plant based protein. I serve my vegan tomato sourdough salad alongside fresh arugula, lightly dressed with lemon juice and olive oil. Although you won’t find one on my plate – Andrew topped his with a runny fried egg.
