SUPER BOWL SUNDAY!!! It’s almost Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!! It’s that time to get down and dirty with friends and family. It’s time to scream at the TV or the radio, (or even at the other side’s fans)! It’s time to EAT, and drink, AND EAT!!! But wait! You’re vegan and you never have many options at your friends’ parties. Throwing your own Super Bowl party will ensure that you can make vegan food for you and your guests! If you only have time for one super vegan Super Bowl snack, be sure you make this, and if you’re not throwing your own party, bring it to the party you’re going to!
This is my vegan take on a 7 layer dip! Usually 2 things stop a vegan from eating the traditional 7 layer dip: the cheese and the sour cream. Luckily, I found great cheese substitutes, and make a pretty damn good vegan sour cream:
Ok, so, first give yourself 3-4 hours of prepping for the sour cream. You’ll need a cup of cashew halves soaked in water for 3-4 hours. Then once that’s done, throw those cashews in a blender or food processor and purée those nuts after they are nice and creamy add some non-flavored almond milk, tofu, chickpeas, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and a little hot sauce (the hot sauce is optional, I just like my food with a little added kick), and blend that mixture all together until it is mixed to your liking and consistency.
Now that your sour cream is made, all you need is a platter. Then start with laying down your vegan refried beans (which you can purchase at the store), then you lay down guacamole (you can make your own or buy from a store), then lay down black olives and top that layer with your sour cream mixture. After the sour cream, you lay down some chopped tomatoes, then top that with your shredded vegan cheese (I use almond brand but Diaya is also pretty good. I also use both the shredded cheddar and mozzarella style).
After the cheese, I top that with a little bit of cilantro (optional) and then I dive in with my chips and enjoy the hell out of the game!!!!
Sour Cream Ingredients
1 cup soaked cashews
1/2 cup chickpeas
1/2 block extra firm tofu
1/4 cup vegan cream cheese
1/2 lemon for juice
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cans of black sliced olives
2 tomatoes chopped and diced
Vegan sour cream mixture
1/2 bag of almond mozzarella cheese
1/2 bag of almond cheddar cheese
Cilantro (optional, and to your liking)
Feel free to add to or subtract from these layers. 7 is always fun, but rice can be added making an 8 and so much more can be added to make a 12 layer dip! The choice is yours! Just make sure you don’t eat it all while preparing it so you can save some for your friends and the game! Peace, Love, Grub!
