Game day is not only for sports, it’s for eating! These delicious Vegan Game Day Snacks are perfect for vegans looking to enjoy tasty food to rival any omnivore fare!
Are you obsessed with sports as I am? Or are you only in it for the tasty food? Either way, I know you’re doing to love to partake in all of these vegan game day snacks.
Whether it’s football, basketball, soccer or almost any other sport, I love a good game and a good spread of food.
Just because I don’t eat the “normal” foods that others do during games, doesn’t mean I won’t be having food that’s just as tasty. From buffalo sauce to cheesy dips – I’ve got you covered!
1. Buffalo Quinoa Balls
I’ve been obsessed with just about anything buffalo inspired since I was in college. Instead of having wings, I came up with an appetizer that gives me that spicy kick without any meat.
My Buffalo Quinoa Balls with ranch are absolutely delicious and are a hit at every party I bring them to. Everyone is so intrigued and think they are so delicious that they’re one of the first things to go!
2. Vegan Chipotle Queso
What’s could be better than a little queso at game time? My Vegan Chipotle Queso is so delicious people won’t even know it’s made with cashews and not real cheese.
This is one of my favorite snacks ever and another treat that is a hit at parties. If you’re having a lot of people over think about making 2 batches – it goes fast!
3. Popcorn Tofu with Siracha Dipping Sauce
Who needs popcorn chicken when you can have something that tastes just as good without the chicken? My Popcorn Tofu is delicious and both adult and kid approved.
I make this in both the air fryer and the oven so you can use either. Don’t forget to make some extra sauce – people will dip everything in it!
4. Vegan Ranch Pasta Salad
What’s a party without a little pasta? My Vegan Ranch Pasta Salad is one of the most popular recipes on my site – for good reason.
It’s yummy, easy to make, and a perfect side dish for any game day.
5. Vegan Port Wine Cheese Ball
I usually make my Vegan Port Wine Cheese Ball for the holiday parties but I think this would be a great addition to any sporting event.
Another one of my cheeses that you wouldn’t know it was vegan. Plus it goes perfectly with wine or beer so it’s a win-win for all!
6. Walnut Meat Tacos
I’ve had so much great feedback on my Walnut Meat Tacos. Ominvoers and vegans alike think these are delicious.
These would be a perfect vegan game day snack if you’re looking for something “meaty” without the meat. The walnut meat can be made the day ahead for easier set up too.
7. Cheesy Potatoes
Two things I love to eat when watching sports are cheese and potatoes so these Cheesy Potatoes are the best of both worlds.
While they’re originally made for an air fryer, I have instructions for baking too and they are just as delightful.
8. Jackfruit Chili
Chili is a staple at a lot of football games so I thought I’d add my Jackfruit Chili to the list as well.
It’s a savory treat that is really easy to make – just throw into a crockpot and you’re good to go a few hours later.
9. Buffalo Chickpea Tacos
How could I have a list of vegan game day snacks without at least two buffalo recipes? These Buffalo Chickpea Tacos (from Vegan Richa’s cookbook) are extra tasty!
10. Vegan Crab Cakes
This is another recipe from one of my cookbook reviews. These Vegan Crab Cakes (from the book Veganize It) are made of hearts of palm but are very similar to traditional crab cakes thanks to some Old Bay seasoning.
I’ve made these into little sliders before and would be another tasty option for game time.
