6 vegan charcuterie boards sure to impress at your next party – Well+Good

If you head to the snack table the second you get to a party, you’re not alone. I mean, who doesn’t prefer a plateful of food over awkward convos? While bowls of tortilla chips are great, you know you’ve hit the jackpot when you spot a charcuterie board. And spoiler alert: The vegan versions are just as great as the originals.

Unlike a crudités platter, which is primarily raw veggies and dip, a charcuterie board is a collection of prepared meats and fancy cheeses. (Not the most vegan-friendly appetizer in the world.) But by swapping in some tasty plant-based meats and dairy-free cheeses, then rounding everything out with an assortment of veggies, fruit, crackers, and delicious dips, you’ll have a combo that will be a hit at any party. Let these vegan charcuterie boards inspire you to create your own.
