Super Superbowl Snacks

Sports fan or not, the Superbowl is a classic time for friends and family to get together. Perhaps you’re cheering for a specific team or player…. Or if watching the game isn’t your thing, perhaps you’ll be watching for the hundreds of commercials debuting during the prime time spot. Either way, who doesn’t love an excuse for a gathering?

I love hosting and the prep before the party is a great way to spend some time in the kitchen with my family and create some fun meals and snacks for everyone to enjoy. For an occasion like this, I typically tap into my vault of favorite appetizers that always get rave reviews.  If you’re hosting at your house, or taking a dish to a friends’, here are some simple, yet delicious, recipes that you can show off.

Enjoy the game!

Quinoa & Chickpea Salad

Sometimes the hardest part of preparing a lunch or dinner meal is figuring out what you’re in the mood for. When in doubt, my go-to is a quinoa bowl full of my favorite foods. In this case, I put together chickpeas, kidney beans, carrots, and celery. A simple combination that satisfies my craving for a healthy, filling lunch that keeps me happy all afternoon.

To top it off, I put together an easy dressing with ingredients I had on hand. I love balsamic vinegar and with a dash of salt, pepper and oregano, I was able to add just the right amount of flavor.
