Vegan Charcuterie Plate
Charcuterie (pronounced shahr-ku-tuh-ree) is the art of assembling an assortment of fruits, nuts, cheese, and vegan deli meats. You can create any charcuterie plate with your personal preferences. Here is my example, but enjoy creating a charcuterie board that appeals to you. Charcuteries are perfect for serving with cocktails, or for snacking while watching your favorite game.
To make the nut trail mix:
Set oven to broil. Place one pound of mixed raw nuts on a roasting tray. It should only take two to three minutes but watch the nuts so they don’t burn. Let the nuts cool completely. Then add a half a cup of chopped dried apricots and a half a cup of Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips.
To make the cheese ball:
In a food processor, add one 8-ounce tub of vegan cream cheese. Then roughly chop one bunch of green onions and add. Next, add one cup of Daiya mozzarella shreds, and about a half a cup of Daiya provolone cheese. Chop roughly one jalapeño and pulse until all ingredients are incorporated. Place cheese mixture on cling wrap and form into a ball. Place the cheese ball in the refrigerator for an hour and then roll the cheese in your favorite chopped nuts. I used chopped walnuts.
The plate has pitted Kalamata olives, pitted organic red grapes, and Late July Classic Crackers.
Put your feet up, and enjoy.
Sending you love and light.
