It can be challenging to create a plant-based cheeseboard that is as satisfying as traditional ones. But, a vegan cheeseboard can be equally delicious and more nutritious than its dairy-based counterpart. Here are some easy tips to make your plant-based cheese tray perfect for any occasion.
Begin by choosing a varied selection of vegan cheeses made from nuts or other dairy alternatives. Selecting a mixture of types – creamy, hard, sharp, and mild – can create more depth in flavors and textures. Pair these with fresh fruit and nuts and your guests will have a colorful palate of options to explore.
Add a variety of crackers or baguette slices to create contrast. Choosing neutral tasting crackers or bread can help highlight the flavors of the vegan cheeses. Additionally, adding some sweet and salty elements like grapes or olives can help round out your vegan cheeseboard.
Don’t forget to add some herbs to complement the flavors and create a visually stunning platter. Adding fresh rosemary, thyme, or basil can elevate the flavors of the cheese and create an inviting aroma that your guests will love.
By following these simple guidelines, you can create a plant-based cheeseboard that is not only delicious but also a healthy alternative to traditional dairy-based cheese trays. So, try experimenting with various options and get creative with your plant-based cheese tray – and enjoy.
