Vegan Board Recipe

By Amy Bailey — June 25, 2018

Happy #meatlessmonday ! Viva La France and the slow food movement. Many times for breakfast we had big platters of fresh foods and freshly baked breads. All of our meals consisted of local foods. There were no ‘to go’ meals and not even ‘to go’ cups for coffee. If you wanted to eat or drink you sat down at a table and enjoyed the experience. Another wonderful part about France – almost everywhere we ate had vegan and vegetarian options along with an extensive non alcoholic drink list. One of my favorite things to do is put together a big board of charcuterie or antipasto. Keeping it all vegan, this board was delicious! Here’s how to assemble:

Fresh fruits:

Red grapes

Cherries

Strawberries

Blackberries

Apricot slices

Olives

Coconut sprinkled peaches (Whole Foods Market)

Edible flowers from the garden

Dried fruits:

Dates

Bananas

Nuts:

Walnuts

Roasted peanuts

Vegetables:

Tomatoes

Radishes

Pickles

Sweet Peppers

Cucumber Salad (Whole Foods Market)

Spreads:

Hummus

Vegan Cheddar Cheese

Conduits:

La Panzanella Crackers

Toasted baguette slices
