Full disclosure: this recipe was my husband's idea. When I'm having trouble brainstorming new recipes I turn to him because I know he'll be able to bounce ideas back and forth. Plus, who better to turn to for a football Sunday inspired recipe than THE sports fan in our household.

Although I’m certainly not the first person to think it, I decided to make an almond butter based sauce instead. Why not? I’d made a few version of an almond butter dipping sauce at my old job and
I love getting inspiration from yummy meals I’ve eaten out at restaurants. It’s fun to try to dissect the ingredients used in the dish so I can recreate it at home. At a girls’ dinner out recently, I had an incredibly cozy, creamy, vegan butternut squash soup. I knew I had to make it again at home.
