What's your favorite Super Bowl snack?
Super Bowl -- for me the best part is the food!
I admit, I'm not much of a football fan. During the regular season I'll watch a game or two with my husband, but I'm not really INTO it. However when it comes to the Super Bowl, my excitement matches his -- not so much for the game, but for the tasty food!
Who doesn't love the traditional game day snacks like a great bowl of chili piled high with cheese or plate full of spicy chicken wings? I certainly do, but sometimes I'd like to serve something different -- does a Super Bowl party have to have a Tex-Mex theme? Of course not!
I like to serve food that is a bit unexpected but still easy to make and absolutely delicious! For instance this year I'm swapping out the chili for a savory Muffuletta - a sandwich made with a large round Italian loaf layered with olive tapenade and cured meats and cheese (yummy!), and I'm replacing the chicken wings with stuffed mushrooms. Both of these items take a little bit of preparation but are actually much easier to make!
And instead of predictable tortilla chips and salsa, I like to make one of my favorite recipes for any kind of party or get-together. It's Rosemary White Bean Dip - a creamy spread that is sort of like hummus but with a Mediterranean flair.
Assorted Veggies are Easy & Healthy
Healthy & Gluten Free
Not only is this dip tasty, it's filling because the white beans are packed with protein! And, it's gluten-free when served with assorted raw veggies! I love it with toasted French bread rounds or pita chips, but it's equally delicious with baby carrots, broccoli or sliced red peppers. And if you really want to get fancy, add peppery radishes, sliced summer squash or zucchini.
Perfect for Parties
Rosemary White Bean Dip will be a hit on game day, at a casual get-together or even a trendy cocktail party. And serving this rich, garlicky, herby spread will make your friends think you've got mad cooking skills!
