Lauren Kirchmaier, the plant-based blogger behind Flora & Vino, recently shared a snackin' staple that actually makes her a fan of football season: her sweet potato pesto poppers. The oil-free, gluten-free, vegan, and grain-free staple is a must-try for anyone at your gathering—plus, they're super easy to make. "They're a total 'game-changer'—sorry, I had to—when it comes to feeding you and your football fans," she writes. "You can whip up the pesto in advance, throw a pan of sweet pots in the oven just before halftime, assemble, and serve 'em warm on a giant platter."
If you're a fan of sweet potato toast, that's the base of this tasty mix, sliced and roasted. The comes the fun part: the topping. To pack in the green—and all sorts of flavor!—Kirchmaier creates her pesto out of a surprising secret ingredient: peas. Combined with hemp hearts for a nutty flavor, spinach, tahini, and other hearty ingredients, the final product is melt-in-your-mouth good—not to mention a serious game day win.
