My partner, Woody and I hosted our first ever Super Bowl Party this past Sunday. We had the party at our house and made it exclusively vegan food only! The Patriots were playing the Giants and since we live in Boston it was of utmost importance to watch the game! We opened the party to any of our friends so long as only vegan food was brought. It was a a total success. We had over 22 people there from 6pm-11pm! Most people stayed till the very end. Everyone that showed up was vegan ranging from new vegans to folks who had been vegan for over 15 years. We even had a few amazing local animal rights heroes who work or who have worked for great groups like The Humane League, Farm Sanctuary, and Humane Society of the United States. Some people were more interested in the company while others were die-hard football fans. Either way though, in the end the food was the night's winner.
Great group of people and great food! Check out the group shot below with everyone crammed into our living room. I think that's the most people we've ever had in one room at once! A few faces are missing as some folks were in the dining room still grazing.
Baked ziti with seitan and chocolate pate!
Fresh veggies, chocolate peanut butter desserts, and pigs in a blanket!

Baked ziti, dehydrated onion rings, Teese Mozz sticks, and Oreos
All about the presentation! Pudding shooters and soup bowls
Get in my belly!
Pigs in a blanket. Just get veggie hot dogs and chop them into 9 pieces per dog then take Crescent Roll dough and wrap it around and bake for about 10 minutes! Serve with ketchup, mustard, and bbq sauce.
Spinach dip in a bread bowl with low-fat Wheat Thins. Get the Knorr dry veggie mix pack and follow directions. Use vegan sour cream and mayo. For extra thickness add a can of artichoke hearts and some red onion. Shaw's bread bowls are vegan.
Baked ziti with seitan!
Potato salad: red potatoes boiled for about 10 mins, cooled, then add vegan mayo and sour cream,raw red onions, raw celery, salt pepper, garlic powder, mustard, and some paprika for presentation.
Chips, olives, jalapenos, melted Daiya, chili, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, and salsa
Two crockpots: one for chili and one for melted Pepperjack Daiya vegan cheese. It helps to add veggie broth to Daiya to liquify it a bit and to keep it from burning
Missing from the pictures: cupcakes, brownies, kale salad, pretzels, other types of chips, Twizzlers, cookies, and cous cous salad.
