How to Make a Delicious Plant Based Charcuterie Board

A delicious charcuterie board isn't just for meat and cheese. You can easily create a gorgeous spread with all your favourite plant based foods.

Start with a couple dips like hummus or pesto in nice jars or bowls, place a few plant based cheeses or spreads on the board, add in your favourite breads or gluten free crackers or crostini like bruschetta or mini avocado toasts, mix it up with different colours of fresh chopped veggies, add in sliced fruit or berries, fill in the blank spots with olives, roasted red peppers and nuts or dates and finally garnish with fresh herbs like rosemary or parsley and tuck a few leafy greens in and around the edges.

Use what you love and maybe even try something new!

Here's a list of my favourite items to choose from when putting a plant based board together to help you get started.
