For those who aren’t huge football fans, the most appealing part about Super Bowl Sunday festivities is all the fun and delicious foods that come with it. But if you’re a vegetarian, or just trying to incorporate more veggies in your diet – you probably know all too well that the typical game-day menu includes staples like heavy dips, chili and chicken wings.
We’ve rounded up 6 colourful and vibrant vegetarian appetizers from the blogosphere to enjoy during the game this weekend. They’re so good, you just might have all the carnivores in the room on your team.

We love the vibrant, bold colour that purple cabbage lends to any dish, and they make perfect serving cups for this light and tasty Spicy Peanut Noodles. As our friend Debi puts it so colourfully, “The cabbage has some girth, so no worries if you want to lift, roll and stuff it in your face.” Amen!

This creamy dip made with seasonal vegetables like acorn squash and garlic is satisfying yet healthy so you can dig it without the guilt! We love it with dippers like fresh veggies like carrot sticks and celery, and it goes perfectly with a crusty baguette or two.

This is one salad that will be welcomed at any game-day party. Creamy blue cheese, hot sauce and crunchy celery pack a punch of flavour in this buffalo-style dish. Pro tip: for quick and easy potatoes, prick them with a skewer and microwave on high for eight minutes.
If you’re looking for ways to jazz up hummus, give this creative recipe a try. Stephanie from I Am A Food Blog uses Japanese white miso paste to give her dip some extra character.
