Meatless Monday: Curried Sweet Potato Chips
It’s almost the Super Bowl! (Woo hoo!) Which means it’s almost time to make a lot of food and use football as an excuse to stuff your face. Usually this day is dedicated to hot wings, chips and dip and various dishes that usually make your stomach hurt by the end of the game.
We’re all for football parties revolving around food, but want to give you some healthier game time options. All this week we’ll be writing about healthier super bowl snacks, in case you feel like rolling out a healthy spread this year.
Who knows how many of you are football fans, so if you couldn’t care less about the super bowl, consider these awesome anytime party snacks.
Our first recipe is simple and mimics potato chips (a game day favorite) gone healthy. All you need is sweet potatoes and some spices, and you’re set.
If you’re hosting a super bowl party but have no idea what’s going on, here’s the situation. It’s Super Bowl XLVII (making it the 47th super bowl) with the San Francisco 49ers playing the Baltimore Ravens. They’re facing off at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in New Orleans at 6:30 pm EST on Sunday, February 3rd.
If you’re not in the mood to host your own celebration, we will be showing the game with happy hour prices on beer and super bowl related food specials (stay tuned).
