What are the best gluten-free snacks for Super Bowl Sunday? How about warming up your guests with a big pot of vegetarian chili, keeping them gathered around the big screen with a delicious bowl of rich caramelized onion dip, and getting everyone screaming and cheering with a piping hot homemade pizza! These snacks are made with whole foods that are naturally gluten-free, like cheeses, nuts, seeds, and veggies, so not only are they healthy, but everyone can enjoy them! Check out Foodista's favorite gluten-free Super Bowl snack recipes from around the web (including my Green, Yellow, and Black Gameday Potato Chips, pictured above) that will have your guests jumping out of their seats!
1. Yellow, Green and Black Super Bowl Potato Chips
I just baked up a batch of these to bring to my friend’s Super Bowl party. My ingredient list? Potatoes, eggs, extra virgin olive oil and sea salt. I also used some turmeric to give the potatoes a bright yellow color as well as some black and green sesame seeds to show my support for both teams! But, feel free to show your allegiance to the Pittsburgh Steelers with the black seeds and the Green Bay Packers with the green ones. These are delicious dipped in some of the caramelized onion dip, listed below!
2. Vegetarian Bean and Pumpkin Chili
This hearty soup features lots of hearty beans, chipotle chilies and pumpkin. Like most chili recipes, this tastes even better the day after, so feel free to make it ahead of time and warm it up over the stovetop for your guests. Delicious topped with bubbly cheese and served with warmed blue corn tortillas!
3. Gluten Free Pizza
This crispy pie crust calls for flaxseed, whole-grain gluten-free flour mix, salt, active-dry yeast, water, and extra virgin olive oil. Pile on some fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, and sweet cherry tomatoes and you have yourself a pizza party!
4. Caramelized Onion Dip
This creamy, flavorful dip features lots of deeply caramelized onions, sour cream and Greek yogurt. Looking for a healthier version? Just substitute low-fat sour cream and low-fat Greek yogurt for the full fat versions. Note: Most dairy products are gluten free, but some yogurts and cheeses have traces of the protein, so make sure to check out the labels.
5. Buckeyes I
This sweet treat is a real crowd pleaser and naturally gluten free-- not some version of an original that tastes much better. No special gluten-free flour or baking mix necessary, just peanut butter, chocolate, butter and sugar. Again, as with the onion dip, just make sure to check the ingredient labels. To represent the team colors, try inserting green, black and yellow toothpicks into the peanut butter balls, or top them off with some team color sprinkles (No one needs to know the original name for the recipe.... Just call them Gameday Peanut Butter Balls!)
