Notes about this book

  • LFL on October 18, 2021

    The book is divided into two sections, “The Boards” and “The Recipes.” The recipes are comprised partly of classics (dill popcorn, cauliflower wings with three sauces, red pepper hummus, quinoa tabbouleh, miso-roasted Brussels sprouts, tempeh BBQ burgers, mini banana Bundt cake) and more inventive ones (vegan beer cheese dip, strawberry cashew cheesecake dip, roasted beet hummus, pistachio cabbage slaw, banh mi pulled jackfruit, sweet potato brownie bowls). There are only 65, but that doesn’t really matter because the themed boards section is where this cookbook really shines. There are roughly 50 boards such as Build Your Own Bagel Board, Tapas and Sangria Board, Netflix Night for Two Board, New Year’s Eve Champagne Toast Board, Pizza Night Board, Chocolate Fondue Board, Ice Cream Sundae Board. The presentation is eye-catching and creative, with attention to symmetry and color. The book makes it a cinch to serve something gorgeous to guests.

    Quinoa tabbouleh salad (pg 131) is a traditional tabbouleh except for the grain. I found the quinoa too mild to carry the salad ... not a winner.

Publishers Text

Finally, a book of beautiful food board ideas for snacks, parties, and family meals that fit your plant-based diet.

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 color 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 colorful 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.

Make these creative vegan boards ahead of time and then enjoy spending time with your impressed and delighted family and friends.
