6 Amazing Vegan Cheese Board Ideas
A vegan cheeseboard is the perfect complement to any party, get-together, or even a simple movie night on the couch! Here are six amazing ideas to construct a mouthwatering, animal-product-free cheese board. Impress your guests with an Instagram-worthy cheese board made completely of plant-based ingredients!
Keep It Simple
The best part of a vegan cheese board is its simplicity - it takes so little to impress so much! First, start with a small selection of your favorite vegan cheeses. There are so many delicious artisan plant-based cheeses to try: soft, firm, aged, herbed! Then, add a small selection of crackers, nuts, veggie meats, fruit, and different spreads.
Add Pops of Color
Add color and really catch the eye of those you're entertaining! Try including fresh berries, colorful jams and vibrant fruits to add pops of color throughout and avoid a boring, beige cheeseboard.
Pair Complementary Flavors
With such a diverse range of flavors and items, make sure your choices for your vegan cheese board don’t clash! If you’ve decided to go with a strong, crumbly, non-dairy blue cheese, try pairing it with a softer, mild plant-based cheese to complement. Mix sweet, fruity jams with crackers or chips for a delicious flavor combination. Or, pair briny treats like olives or pickled vegetables with a creamy vegan cheese!
Play With Texture
Texture is another important consideration for a fantastic vegan cheese board. When it comes to vegan cheeses, be sure to include a range of firm and soft options. Softer, gooey plant-based cheeses and smooth spreads pair great with crispy vegan crackers and chips. Adding layers of texture to your board will make it more eye-catching and interesting.
Choose a board, such as a serving dish, plate, or even a cutting board to start. Place contrasting colors and textures next to each other to create your visually stimulating masterpiece! Choose to keep your plant-based cheese whole and add some cheese knives, or present your board pre-sliced for your guests’ convenience.
Add A Surprise!
Surprise your guests with an extra, thoughtful add-on! Include a small dish of olive oil or hummus for dipping warm pieces of bread, or a bowl with a variety of vegan chips to contrast the sweeter elements of your vegan cheese board!
