Fall is a great time for a house party with friends or family. Whether you’re gathering to watch your favorite football team or to celebrate the holidays, chances are everyone will be eating a lot of munchies.
@SweetSimpleVegan’s Vegan Filipino Barbecue
Being vegan doesn’t mean you have to give up good barbecue. Vegan blogger Jasmine Briones of @sweetsimplevegan offers a vegan spin on Filipino barbecue skewers. Traditionally, Filipino barbecue uses pork or chicken, but Briones’ vegan recipe uses soy curls instead.
The recipe also calls for vegan beef broth, vegan oyster sauce, and banana ketchup (which doesn’t taste like bananas but is made with them). You can substitute regular ketchup if you can’t find the banana kind.
@NikkiVegan’s 5-Minute Vegan Cream Cheese Dip
No party is complete without a cheese dip for guests to nosh on. Your guests will love this 5-minute Vegan Cream Cheese Dip from Nicole Vranjican's Nikki Vegan blog. Just mix an eight-ounce container of dairy-free cream cheese with apricot jam. Set the jam and the vegan cream cheese on the counter for a few minutes. It will be easier to mix if it is closer to room temperature.
Once everything is mixed, top it with dried apricots and a sprig of rosemary and serve with crackers. Your guests won’t be able to distinguish between your vegan dip and one that uses real dairy products.

You can serve the vegan taquitos alone or with salsa.

Let the poppers cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
@fancyplantsfoodie’s Spicy Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Wings
It’s hard to imagine a football watch party without wings, and @fancyplantsfoodie has a recipe for vegan buffalo wings made with cauliflowers that are much healthier than traditional buffalo wings. The cauliflower florets, or “wings,” are dipped in a batter made of plant milk, gluten-free flour, and spices before being baked in the oven for 20 minutes. These vegan-friendly wings can be served with a side of vegan garlic mayo.
