What Is a Charcuterie Board?
Charcuterie is a French word that refers to a method of preserving meats. But, clearly, we can veganize anything!
Over the years, the term has come to include many different charcuterie boards resembling more of a smorgasbord.
How to Make a Vegan Charcuterie Board
- Pick a board. It doesn’t have to be a certain brand, size, or style, just make sure it’s sturdy and lays flat!
- Grab your food. Go with a color theme or just grab what sounds tasty. You can make a board out of anything! Just grab what you want to make your charcuterie board vegan.
- Start a skeleton. Start placing bigger items like dips or large veggies or fruits on your board and move them around as much as you need.
- Fill in the gaps on your vegan charcuterie plate. Using smaller items, fill in spaces until you can’t see your board base.
