A vegan charcuterie board

The Ultimate Party Snack

Ok, it’s 2019 and you likely are very familiar with charcuterie boards. More commonly known as “cheese boards”, these epic spreads have always been a favorite snack of mine.

I remember in elementary school before I could really cook anything for myself, finding such pleasure in making my own little cheese plates.

By now, the old cheese plate has received a serious makeover in the form of highly styled spreads of artisanal meats, cheeses, and essentially anything you can eat with your fingers.

The charcuterie board may have reached a new level of extra, but it has also a new level of a delicious.

A Vegan Charcuterie Board – How To

If you’ve ever dabbled in the art of charcuterie, you know it’s pretty straightforward.

  1. Put all your ingredients on a tray or cutting board
  2. Throw in some spoons, knives, or forks for easy access to spreads and finger foods

That said, it’s the attention to detail that takes the average snack plate to this vegan charcuterie board we are making today.

Here are my top tips in making a next level charcuterie display:

  • Plan it out! I know it can seem like overkill to sketch out your tray before assembling, but trust me here. If you really want this board to come together, take the time to balance things in the right way. This will help in spreading the crown around the board, instead of everyone forming a line by the corner with all 3 cheeses. Here is a set of cutting boards that can make this process a lot easier.
  • Cut most of the cheese, fruit, and veggies ahead of time, off the board. The last thing you want is a board that looks dirty underneath all of the treats. Save yourself the stress by cutting things on a separate surface.
  • Garnish with some pretty details like fresh herbs or edible flowers. It’s easy to run out of room quickly when designing a board for a large party. Using a garnish can really fancy things up without taking up too much space.
