Inclusive March Madness Recipes
A party isn’t a party unless there is something for everyone to enjoy. This March, choose inclusive snack options guaranteed to give every guest something to love. Or check out our menu here to see what we can whip up for your get-together.
Buffalo Cauliflower Wings
It’s no secret that buffalo wings have long been considered a classic, American game day staple. Now, with a helping of these spicy buffalo cauliflower wings, you don’t have to sacrifice your ideals to join in the fun!
At City Roots Hospitality, we take the utmost care in preparing our own fried buffalo cauliflower pops. Replicate that same crispy, mouthwatering treat by pairing this dish with a vegan blue cheese dip and topping each plate with fresh celery shavings.
Vegan “Salmon” Patties
Few appetizers are quite as impressive as a freshly prepared salmon patty. The fresh seafood flavor and delectable texture combine to create the perfect finger food, just as enjoyable on a game day as it is during a far more elegant event. By choosing this vegan option, you ensure that even guests with seafood allergies can enjoy the same level of flavor and sophistication as they cheer on their favorite players and teams.
Vegan Chips and Dip
You can’t go wrong with chips and dip; it’s a staple at almost every get-together, especially March Madness. This is one of those things you can quickly pick up at the store and throw together, as long as your dips are vegan. A hummus, guacamole, or avocado dip is best. We offer a perfectly made taro chip with a guacamole dip for your guests to enjoy.
Vegan Potato Salad
No homemade table spread is complete without a hefty serving of potato salad. Rather than relying on egg-based mayonnaise, select a vegan option and give every guest the same chance to enjoy this classic dish without fear of breaking their cruelty-free lifestyle. Ours comes with herb aioli.
As opposed to popular opinion, just because most alcohols are derived from plants does not mean that they are entirely vegan. Because many of the complicated filtering processes rely on animal products and by-products, a surprising number of beverages benefit from cruelty toward animals.
This March Madness, choose vegan alcohol options. In doing so, offer your guests the most compassionate beer, wine, and cocktails of the season!
The perfect game day can’t run on savory foods alone; complete your homemade table spread with sweet desserts.
City Roots Hospitality is always proud to present our green tea donuts, flavored with pistachios and rosemary and topped with a bright citrus glaze. On your table, have fun experimenting with different flavors in pursuit of your next favorite dessert!
Add the perfect sweet finish to every game day with fluffy, moist vegan cupcakes! For bonus points, use vegan food dyes to color each cupcake and its corresponding icing to match your favorite team’s colors.
Ready for a challenge? Follow the City Roots Hospitality tradition and consider pairing your cupcakes with unconventional ingredients, adding a complex flair fit to “wow” every guest. For our own cupcakes, we start with a red velvet batter, then use crispy beet chips to add a salty, earthy contrast to the usual sweetness.
Looking for a dessert option everyone will enjoy? Look no further than the simple combination of luxury chocolate, marshmallows, and crackers! This is a fun treat to have, as it’s incredibly fast to cook up in the oven. Our own are decadent bites that everyone loves.
