Super Bowls

DSC_0308If you’re looking for a healthier twist on the traditional Super Bowl feast you might want to check out this idea of a “Super Bowl” from Vintage Mixer. In lieu of chicken wings and pizza,  spread your table with ‘super foods’ like quinoa and sweet potatoes and everyone can make their own super bowl, topped with a generous amount of creamy avocado jalapeño lime dressing.  We ate these while the quinoa and roasted vegetables were still warm but you could served everything at room temperature.

The options for what to include in your bowls are endless.  I added:

  •  quinoa (brown rice or any grain you like is a good base)
  • roasted spiced sweet potatoes
  • roasted spiced chickpeas
  • roasted spiced corn
  • roasted vidalia onions
  • dried cranberries
  • diced carrots
  • diced snow peas
  • diced cucumber
  • avocado jalapeño lime dressing
  • feta

other ingredients that would be great:

  • micro greens and sprouts
  • nuts
  • a fried or boiled egg
  • roasted cauliflower or broccoli
  • edamame
  •  sunflower or sesame seeds
  • herbs like cilantro, parsley or basil
  • rotisserie chicken

To make the perfect creamy, spicy avocado jalapeño lime dressing: combine 1 medium avocado, 1 small jalapeño (with or without seeds depending on how much heat you like,) juice of 1 lime, 1 clove garlic salt and pepper to taste, 1 tablespoon honey, agave or maple syrup, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon cumin.
Puree everything in a blender or food processor until smooth.
