A vegan charcuterie board doesn’t have to be complicated. Serve up a gorgeous board like this that can be put together in under 10 minutes. Nobody will even know they are eating healthier this holiday season!
You can even add in some vegan cheese, little black bean bites and some pickles and olives for a more savory board. Whatever you add, it will be beautiful and delicious. Keep it small by making these into individual charcuterie boxes or go BIG and make a vegan grazing table for a crowd!
One thing that I love about charcuterie boards is that they are so customizable and you can really make it your own! Whether you want fresh fruit or bell peppers on this vegan snack board, the choice is yours.
Snack boards are a great way to please a large number of people at holiday parties! You can add something to the board for everyone or even make small charcuterie board to fit everyones needs.
Not only are charcuterie boards an efficient way to feed a crowd, they’re also the perfect appetizers to impress your crowd! You can get everything you need for this epic vegan charcuterie board from your local grocery store and make it look professional!

What goes in a charcuterie board without meat?
You can easily make a grazing board without meat products! Dried fruits, apple slices, cucumber slices, cherry tomatoes, vegan dips, and your favorite crackers are excellent choices for a vegan snack board. Here are my favorite things to add to a vegan charcuterie board…
Dried mangos or freeze dried mangos have a great sweet taste and the perfect crunchy texture. They also add a pop of color which is what you’re looking for!
If you’ve never tried dates, you’re missing out. They’re perfectly sweet, have a hint of caramel to them, and pair well with tons of other fruits.
I like to place fresh berries in a small bowl because I find they easily roll around the board. Larger berries like strawberries don’t need to be placed in a bowl but smaller fruits do!
Dairy free cheese adds a different texture to your vegetarian charcuterie board and it goes great with crackers. Cheese is one of those things you almost have to include in a charcuterie board! Dairy-free or not, cheese is a necessity!
Can you put veggies on charcuterie board?
Adding vegetables to your vegan charcuterie board is a great idea! Veggies are healthy, yummy, and they add a pop of color to the vegan board. When loading your board up with veggies, I recommend adding red pepper hummus or another dairy-free dip to pair them with!
Sliced carrots, bell peppers, cucumber slices, broccoli, cauliflower, etc. are all great options for veggies and are perfect for special occasions. It will depend on your size board for how many vegetables and toppings you can fit.
