10 Vegetarian Recipes for Game Day

It's the week of the big game!  For non-football people, that means an occasion to make a minimal bet on sports, especially exciting if they involve things other than the score.  It's an occasion to get together and watch a spectacle of a concert that lasts for about 10 minutes, as well as the commercials everyone will be discussing the next day.  And of course, if you're not that interested in the game, the best part about Super Bowl Sunday is the excuse to indulge in unlimited calories.  Now, this is a challenge for us vegetarians, because most of the traditional football food is either meat-based or topped with bacon.  A good host will know his or her audience and prepare an option or two that a non-meat eater will also enjoy.  If you are that host, or are comfortable enough to share this list with the person responsible for hosting your Super Bowl party, I have rounded up 10 vegetarian-friendly foods that will also go over well with the meat-eaters.
