Serving artfully arranged foods on boards or platters is extremely popular, but until now, all the books on the subject have been full of meats, cheeses, and other animal products. Vegan Boards is the first book to make this trend accessible to people who follow an entirely plant-based diet. The results are delectable-and gorgeous to behold.
In these pages, Kate Kasbee, co-creator of the popular blog Well Vegan, shows you how to create 50 stunning plant-based boards. Step-by-step instructions and a colour photograph are included for each one. All the boards are remarkably easy to prepare and most require no cooking at all. Those that require cooking are simple to make, such as roasted vegetables, quesadillas, or bruschetta. You'll also find guidance on how to use equipment and utensils to make serving food on boards both beautiful and safe.
There are adventurous boards, like a Greek mezze board with kalamata olives, garlic bread, and fava beans marinated in olive oil and oregano; a platter of scrumptious Spanish tapas; and a colourful array of Mexican antejitos, "small bites." There are plenty of kid-friendly boards, too, featuring fresh veggies and delicious dips.Vegan Boards includes a special chapter on comforting breakfast and brunch boards and another on healthy and vibrant fruit and dessert boards. There are lots of ideas for weekday dining with the family, and also for weekends and holidays when company is coming.
