The 49th Super Bowl is this Sunday, with the Seattle Seahawks pitted against the New England Patriots. But, more important than the game, than the commercials, is what you serve at your party! (or take to someone’s party!) Today are a few vegetarian appetizers to go with the spirit of typical Super Bowl party eats…one has buffalo sauce and the other is chips, but both are a healthier versions! Follow the directions below for buffalo cauliflower steaks and my version of sweets and beets–sweet potato and beet chips!
Sriracha Buffalo Cauliflower Steaks:
1 head of cauliflower
1/4 Cup Sriracha Sauce
6 TBSP Butter
1/8 Cup White Vinegar
In a saucepan on the stove, melt and stir ingredients until butter is completely melted
Preheat oven to 375
Chop cauliflower into chunks and put in bowl
Pour Sriracha buffalo sauce over cauliflower and mix until chunks are coated
Pour into oven safe dish sprayed with cooking spray and bake in over for 30-40 minutes, or until the cauliflower is just starting to brown
Place on serving dish and serve along side of ranch or SEPO Sauce!
Sweets and Beets:
1 Sweet Potato
4 Rosemary sprigs
Salt and Pepper
Preheat oven to 400
Slice beets and sweet potato thinly, either using a knife or mandolin
Line rimmed cookie sheets with tin foil
Toss beets and sweet potato slices in EVOO, salt, pepper, and rosemary
Spread the sweets and beets in a single layer on cookie sheets (you will fill a few cookie sheets!)
Bake in oven until sweet potato and beet slices are just turning golden brown–do not let them burn!
Place in bowl to be shared with all!
