The Super Bowl is here and the parties are about to begin. 

Care New England has come up with five healthy recipes to make before the big game. 

“The infamous Super Bowl party is always notorious for piles of unhealthy foods because it’s quick and easy. However, it doesn’t have to be that way and you can stay on the path of healthy eating while enjoying the big game,” says Care New England. 

The Recipes: 

1. Baked Chicken Tenders with Creamy Avocado Dipping Sauce

Watching the game can be intense, so you need to have finger food that won’t get in the way. These chicken tenders hit the mark for easy snacking, taste great hot or cold, and go great with the creamy avocado sauce.

2. Roasted Red Pepper Spread

This hummus-like spread works well for a sandwich. Slather it over toast, top with arugula, cucumbers, and scallions for tasty bite-sized treats.

Place these sandwiches on a tray to have around when your guests get hungry between commercial breaks. Another option is to offer a bowl of the spread along with roasted veggies and pita triangles for another healthy snack.

4. Raw Zucchini Sushi Rolls

When you’re making traditional sushi rolls, you’ll use a large strip of nori. This raw version uses zucchini rather than nori. Soaked and blended cashew is recommended as a substitute for rice. Then add any of your favorite veggies like carrots or cucumber or radishes. Even avocado makes for a great roll.

5. Zucchini Fries with Sriracha Dipping Sauce

Sandwiches, sliders, and chicken tenders are great, but you need a side of fries to go with them! This recipe uses zucchini as the healthy alternative to the greasy version. Top it off with a spicy sriracha dipping sauce and you have a perfect addition to any of the other dishes you’ll be serving at you Super Bowl party.
