Half-Time Show Veggie Snack Attack

Okay, okay, you know what I mean. I’m sure there are a *few* of you out there to whom this whole football deal is an epic event. Honestly, it’s so far off my radar that if my entire blogroll weren’t doing “Superbowl Snacks!” posts I’d be completely clueless.

Oh, and my girlfriend is a Madonna-crazed fangirl ;) The half-time show is where it’s gonna be at around here.

These are pretty much on the *extreme health nutty* end of the Superbowl-snack-spectrum but I’ve gotten the feeling that there are some serious health foodies out there and I’m not the only one who will be avoiding buffalo wings and nachos (although if you want nachos…)

Happy munching and happy…superbowling? Yeah…clueless ;)

Chili-“Cheese” Cauliflower Popcorn

Chili-Cheese Cauliflower Popcorn- try it raw or roasted!

1 head cauliflower

1/2 cup (or more) nutritional yeast

1 tbsp chili powder

sprinkling of cayenne

1 tsp onion powder

sea salt, to taste

drizzle of olive oil (optional, omit for a lighter version).

These can be done raw or roasted. Remove leaves from cauliflower and break into popcorn-sized bites. Place in a large bowl and toss with spices and optional olive oil. Eat raw or roast at 400 for 30 minutes.

Carrot Fries with Simple-to-the-Max Guacamole

Roasted Carrot Fries with Simple-to-the-Max Guacamole

baby carrots

veggie broth, coconut oil, or organic butter

4 avocados

2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Chili Pepper Sauce

Preheat oven to 400. Give carrots a light coating of butter or oil. For an oil-free option, place in a baking pan and splash a little veggie broth over them. Or just dry roast. They are delicious any way you do it. Roast for 30-40 minutes. Mash avocados with Chili Sauce (told you it was simple!). Dip!

Goat Cheese Wraps with Salsa

Goat Cheese Wraps with Salsa

goat cheese slices (I found mine at Trader Joe’s)

collard greens

your favorite salsa (I’m obsessed with the Emerald Valley brand)

Place collard leaves on a plate and cut down either side of the stem. Keep the leaves and put away the stems to juice later if you wish. Cut each of the two leaves in half. Each collard green will give you 4 wraps. Place half a cheese slice (or half an ounce of sliced goat cheese) atop a collard wrap and roll. Secure with a toothpick. Dip in salsa.
