Welcome to our very first “Recipe Recap”! We see so many great recipes come through our feeds, and try to share as many as we can with our friends, but started to think there had to be a better way. So starting today, we will capture some of our favorite recipes from our members and other local influences in the New England culinary scene and post them right here.
With all of the excitement in the air — particularly in New England — we figured some Super Bowl-ready recipes would be just what everyone could use. Whether you are looking for a new addition to your table, or just some ideas to start, we’re sure at least one of the recipes below will come in handy.
What will you be serving at your Super Bowl party? Please share your favorite dishes with us in the comments below!
Super Bowl Salad
Are you looking to add something a little bit healthier to your table this year? This salad brings together all sorts of great ingredients — kidney beans, barley, peppers, black-eyed peas, and more — with minimal effort required.
Sweet Potato + Black Bean Chili
What’s a Super Bowl party without some chili, right? But if you feel like your table has enough meat on it already, this new take on chili offers up a great combination of flavors with a healthy dose of protein.
Chocolate Strawberry Footballs
Why settle for a plain old tray of cookies, when you could put out a tray of these festive treats? All it takes is a little bit of creativity, and you will be sure to satisfy just about every sweet tooth in the room.
Chocolate Beer Chili
Not sure if you can get away without serving up a chili made for the carnivores? No problem, this chili recipe will keep them happy. Made with bacon, beer, and chocolate — who will be able to resist?
Ginger-Soy Glazed Wings
It has been estimated that Americans would consume 1,250,000,000 chicken wings — or 1.25 billion — during this year’s big game. But you have to wonder how many of those will be as delicious as these Ginger-Soy Glazed Wings. A little bit sweet and a little bit savory, add a batch of these to your table and everyone may forget who they are rooting for in the game and start cheering your name instead.
Kickin’ Kale Salad
After any over-indulgence Sunday, you may want something a little bit lighter on your plate Monday. This substantial, and filling, salad is full of nutritious ingredients but doesn’t include one leaf of lettuce. All in all, it offers a clean start for a new week.
