Bowl Time

Your Super Bowl party should be delicious!

Annabel Cohen
Special to the Jewish News


he Super Bowl is the U.S. spectator
sports event of the year with esti-
mates of nearly 100 million viewers.
Whether you're attending a football bash or
simply holing up at home in front of your
giant flat-screen, chances are there will be
food involved. This year's date: Feb. 6.
I think it would be great fun to serve
Super Bowl food in, well, bowls. Big bowls
of steamy, spicy chili (Texas-style: bean-free
with hunks of beef) or vegetarian with white
beans and Italian farro, a whole-wheat grain.
Add a big salad bowl of chopped greens and
vegetables with fresh herbs.
Another big bowl of sweet and sticky
chicken wings, another with crispy, seeded
lavash chips and a snack bowl brimming
with healthy, crunchy, roasted garbanzo
beans are unusual, yet fan-friendly eats that
will score big.

1 /4 cup lemon juice
1 11/2cups white wine

1 Tbsp. minced ginger
i/2 tsp. salt
1 /2 tsp. pepper
1 /2 cup soy sauce
1 /4 cup ketchup
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 cup brown sugar
1 /2 tsp. red pepper flakes
Cut wings into two at the joints (you will
end up with one half of the wings that look
like tiny drumsticks and another half that is
flatter and pointy). Cut off and discard wing
Place wings in large bowl. Add the mari-
nade ingredients and toss well. Place wings
in a large zipper bag and marinate them

several hours to overnight.
Preheat oven to 375E Spray a rimmed
baking sheet well with nonstick cooking
spray (or line with nonstick foil). Remove the
wings from the marinade and arrange on the
baking sheet. Bake for 20-minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the glaze ingredients
in a small saucepan over medium heat.
Cook, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved.
Set aside.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven
and carefully tip the pan to remove any col-
lected juices from the pan. Return to the
oven and brush the glaze over. Cook for 15
minutes, turn over the wings and brush the
glaze on the top. Return the pan to the oven
and cook until the wings are caramelized,
about 20-30 minutes more. Transfer to a
serving bowl and serve hot, warm or at room

Baked Seeded Lavash Chips
Serve these as-is or for dipping in your
favorite hummus, guacamole, salsa or other
dip. I make a lot because they're real crowd
Large rectangular or round lavash sand-
wich wraps or flour tortillas
Olive oil for brushing on lavash
Kosher salt to taste
One or more of the following toppings:
Granulated garlic
Poppy seeds
Flax seeds
Sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 400F. Line a rimmed baking
sheet with parchment or foil. Arrange one
lavash on the baking sheet.
Brush the top of each lavash lightly with
olive oil. Sprinkle very lightly with salt.
Sprinkle lightly with any, some, or all of
the "toppings." Bake for 5 minutes or until
lightly golden (different lavash brands are
of varied thicknesses, so they may need
more baking time). Allow to cool and break
into large pieces. Repeat with as many
lavash as you wish. LJ
