The Super Bowl? I confess I’ve never watched it. Like, really, sat down on the couch and followed every play. I remember doing a TV segment on a morning show when I was the editor-in-chief of Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine. The subject was Super Bowl snacks, which was a breeze. Keeping up with the host on football terminology? Now that was a challenge!
I do, however, love to cook for the Super Bowl, which for me is just a wonderful reason to spend time with friends and eat fun finger foods together.
PLEASE NOTE: When I develop recipes for my cookbook and specifically for my blog, they are always gluten-free and dairy-free. They are often soy-free and peanut-free, too. However, when I develop gluten-free recipes for magazines, websites and brands (such as Food & Wine, the Food Network and Udi’s below), I don’t always have the choice to make the recipes dairy-free. When I do, I choose dairy-free all the way! That said, I’ve provided substitutes below, many of which appear in my new cookbook, Silvana’s Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Kitchen.
Here’s a crowd-cheering roundup of my top 10 Super Bowl recipes:
Dairy-free substitutes: 1) I have a dairy-free version of this recipe (which I love!) in my new cookbook
2) nonfat plain Greek yogurt= dairy-free Greek-style yogurt recipe from my new cookbook or store-bought dairy-free coconut yogurt
3) grated Parmesan= my dairy-free grated Parmesan recipe in my new cookbook
Dairy-free substitute: 1) Omit the cheese spread; instead, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and scatter over finely chopped garlic
2) Smear on some of my dairy-free ricotta recipe from my new cookbook stirred together with finely chopped garlic
