The Super Bowl is almost here! There are tons to look forward to, whether you’re cheering for the Buccaneers or the Chiefs or watching The Weeknd’s halftime show. However, we’re of course most excited about the food! The best part of the Super Bowl is munching on delicious finger food. Traditionally, finger food entails lots of meat and cheeses- but there are plenty of alternatives! Keep reading below for a roundup of plant-based finger foods perfect for your vegan Super Bowl evening.

Prepare Vegan Nachos using Nutritional Yeast, Vegan Cheese or Modern Crumble
These days there are so many cheese alternatives that we can make nachos for everyone. One of the cheese replacements we recommend is Blacksheep Vegan Cheeze (Available at our Modern Wellness Bars), they have an excellent Jalapeño Veddar cheese.
