This will be your new "go-to" game day side! So easy and so good - and it travels well.
- 2 pounds baby Yukon Gold or Red potatoes, halved, (quartered if large)
- 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. distilled white vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. kosher salt
- 2 Tbsp.chopped fresh chives (optional)
- Salt, to taste
Combine potatoes, 1 cup vinegar, and 1 Tbsp. kosher salt in a medium saucepan; add water to cover by 1". Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat, simmering until potatoes are tender, 20-25 minutes; drain and pat dry. (If you are going to another location with an oven: allow to cool and place in container for travel - next step may be completed when you arrive for maximum crispiness!) Preheat oven to 425 F. Place potatoes on greased baking sheet, and bake until browned and crisp, about 20 minutes. Check frequently, every 5 minutes, tossing potatoes each time. When potatoes are browned and crisp, remove from oven, and drizzle with remaining 2 Tbsp. vinegar. Serve topped with chives (optional) and salt to taste.

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Satisfying munchies that replicate the flavors of tailgating favorite Buffalo wings (and you don't need to tell anyone they are vegan!). The cauliflower is grilled or oven-roasted until browned and nutty, then tossed with a tangy sauce that can be as spicy as you like.
- 1 head cauliflower, broken into small florets
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup sweet paprika
- 1 Tbsp.garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp.smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp.cayenne pepper, or to taste
- 1/8 tsp.salt
- 3 Tbsp. water
Preheat the oven to 450°F or prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. Roast cauliflower on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet or place it on a grill rack and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, sweet paprika, garlic powder, smoked paprika, cayenne, salt and 3 tablespoons water together in a large bowl. Taste the sauce; if you'd like it hotter, add a bit more cayenne. Toss the cauliflower in the sauce until well coated and transfer to a platter.
