10 Delicious Football Party Recipes -- that happen to be VEGAN

Silk is launching a new campaign this fall to encourage everyone to #SidelineMeat during Monday night football games.

It's good for the planet, it's good for our bodies, and it can taste just as delicious too! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut, when I started thinking about all the traditional football party food and what I might transform into a meat-free + dairy-free dish, I realized it wasn't going to be that easy. Most football party food that comes to mind is super meat heavy (ground beef, pepperoni, chicken), covered in melted cheese, and then topped with more meat. Right?! Cheese dip, potato skins with bacon and cheese, pork sliders, chili, pepperoni pizza, buffalo chicken bites with ranch... are you hungry yet?

Well, I've created a new recipe that you're going to love and then I've also gathered my favorite vegan football party recipes from around the web... so you don't have to look any further for dairy-free, meatless options for your next get together!

1) Jalapeno Corn Avocado Toast

This appetizer is super creamy thanks to the avocado and Silk cashewmilk and is filled with healthy fat and fiber to keep you satisfied. The jalapenos, corn, and spicy mustard take this avocado toast to the next level -- and make it more football party worthy. You could also serve it more as a guac/dip alongside tortilla chips!
