Andrew Hugh Purcell

We know what you’re thinking: healthy and Super Bowl? An oxymoron, right? But believe it or not, you can enjoy these delicious versions of all your Super Bowl favorites—Buffalo wings, chips and dips, burgers, BBQ, and more—without feeling like you overdid it at the end of the evening, whether you’re looking for plant-based, lower-fat, less salt, or higher fiber.

  • Recipe

    Grilled Buffalo Wings

    These wings are grilled, not fried, but still dunked in the butter-hot sauce combo for that classic Buffalo wing flavor.

    Smoky BBQ Pork Tenderloin

    This savory barbecued pork is made from a leaner cut than the usual pulled pork. Try pairing it with baked beans or slicing it thin for sandwiches.

    Vegetarian Reubens

    You won’t miss the meat in these vegetarian sandwiches. Pastrami-spiced roasted mushrooms and garlicky spinach are layered with Emmentaler cheese, rye-flavored sauerkraut, and a creamy Greek yogurt Russian sauce for an unforgettable sandwich that even meat eaters will adore.

    Taco Slaw

  • Recipe

    Umami Bomb Mushroom Burgers

    This is an exceptionally "meaty" veggie burger, thanks to the deep, savory flavor in the mushrooms and soy sauce, the richness of the cashews, and the pleasantly chewy texture of the rice. Even meat-eaters will be satisfied by this one. For a match made in heaven, top it with Miso Mayonnaise.

    Classic Guacamole

    Another decadent dip that's actually super-healthy, thanks to those miracle avocados.

    Spicy Slow-Cooker Veggie Chili with Summer Squash and Jalapeños

    This colorful chili is delicious with sour cream, diced avocados, and warm tortillas or lime-flavored tortilla chips. For less heat, omit the jalapeño.

    Cinnamon Toast Popcorn

    Tossed with toasty brown butter and cinnamon sugar, this popcorn is slightly sweet and super delicious. Adding milk powder to the melting butter creates brown bits for even more flavor.

    Roasted Red Pepper Dip

    Smoky and sultry, this is a sophisticated dip for pairing with Homemade Potato Chips (of course, they make store-bought ones taste better too). You can roast the peppers yourself or use jarred.

  • Recipe

    Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

    Yes, you can buy lower-fat baked chips, but they won't have the toasty flavor of homemade ones.

  • Recipe

    Oven Baked Onion Rings

    Tangy buttermilk and crushed baked potato chips make a flavorful coating for these big sweet onion rings that brown into a beautifully crunchy shell in the oven.

  • Recipe

    Chili Con Carne

    Too much salt isn't good for you, but too little makes for a bland meal. This robust Chili Con Carne strikes the right balance. With high-impact flavor elements—pure ground chile, freshly toasted and ground coriander and cumin seeds—you get maximum flavor without overdosing on the salt that's often added to packaged chili powder blends. Aromatic herbs and citrus punch up the flavor as well, making this a new favorite dish for game night—or any night.

  • Recipe

    Chipotle Black Bean Dip

    Beans provide the creaminess in this healthier-than-you-think dip, which has a smoky, spicy kick. Serve it with fresh-baked corn tortilla chips, homemade pita chips, or fresh vegetables for dipping.
