Healthy Super Bowl Snacks sounds impossible, but there are really good options out there. The Super Bowl is this Sunday, and I love to eat healthy, and I love a good party, so this blog will be a fun one.
There is a blog with 50 different ideas, but I thought I’d narrow it down to three. And if you want to know of some healthy cocktails to pair alongside, I have a blog here with Low Calorie Options.
Here are the different recipes for my Top 3 choices of snacks:
You can buy this at the store, but having a homemade hummus is definitely more delicious, healthy and impressive, right? Plus, you can add many toppings to make it fun. I like fresh parsley leaves and pomegranates.
The recipe from the blog:
115-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
¼cupolive oil, plus more for serving
2tablespoonsfresh lemon juice
2tablespoonstahini (sesame seed paste; optional)
In a food processor, puree the chickpeas and garlic with olive oil, lemon juice, tahini (if using), cumin, and ¾ teaspoon salt until smooth and creamy. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to achieve the desired consistency.
Transfer to a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the paprika before serving.
1cuploosely packed fresh parsley leaves and tender stems, finely chopped
¼teaspooncrushed red pepper
¼teaspoonfreshly ground black pepper
1 ¾cupsplain whole-milk Greek yogurt
Place garlic and salt in a medium bowl. Stir, lightly mashing, until a paste forms. Whisk in vinegar. Add oregano, parsley, oil, crushed red pepper, and black pepper; stir until well combined.
Pour out any excess liquid from yogurt and stir until smooth. Transfer yogurt to a large serving bowl. Set aside 2 tablespoons chimichurri. Gently fold remaining chimichurri into yogurt in 2 batches until streaked but not fully combined. Swirl in reserved 2 tablespoons chimichurri on top.
A slow cooker is a great option for a football game party, even if it’s just you and your spouse! It can sit there for hours and there is no worry about food spoiling. You can eat it whenever you are hungry and it can be saved for later. Perfect.
The blog has the recipe as follows:
1medium red onion, chopped
1green bell pepper, chopped
4garlic cloves, chopped
2teaspoonsunsweetened cocoa powder
kosher salt and black pepper
128-ouncecan fire-roasted diced tomatoes
115.5-ouncecan black beans, rinsed
115.5-ouncecan kidney beans, rinsed
1medium sweet potato (about 8 ounces), peeled and cut into 1⁄2-inch pieces
sour cream, sliced scallions, sliced radishes, and tortilla chips, for serving
In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the onion, bell pepper, garlic, chili powder, cumin, cocoa, cinnamon, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
Add the tomatoes (and their liquid), beans, sweet potato, and 1 cup water.
Cover and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender and the chili has thickened, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total recipe time).
Serve the chili with the sour cream, scallions, radishes, and tortilla chips.
