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.
Treat your family and friends to enticing vegan boards for every occasion, from breakfast and brunch, grazing at home, and full meals to seasonal celebrations, special occasions, and dessert, including:
Sweet & Savory Toast Board
Post-Workout Lunch Board
Spring Forward Board
Rainbow Chopped Salad Board
Mediterranean Grazing Board
Coconut Chickpea Curry Board
Family Movie Night Board
Date Night Vegan Cheese Board
Mini Bundt Cakes Board
Make these creative vegan boards ahead of time and then enjoy spending time with your impressed and delighted family or guests.

So much fun and full of creative ideas for various vegan boards
Reviewed in the United States on March 7, 2021
I love this book! Though I own hundreds of plant based cookbooks this one stands out for its uniqueness!! The book is centered around plant based boards for every occasion!
Friday nights we have always loved creating snack boards but as I am vegetarian not vegan – they usually centered around cheese and wine! However we would turn wake the next day feeling awful from the sodium and fat overload so we have really decided that this is one indulgence that has to go away – or at the very least be reduced so I was so excited to get this book for new ideas!
The book is stunning and full of beautiful pictures!
It is broken into 5 mail chapters: Breakfast and Brunch, Grazing at home, Meal boards, Seasonal and Celebration boards; and Fruit and Dessert Boards!
Some fun standouts for me were the chia pudding parfait board – we love chia pudding – and this is a fun way for everyone to customize their breakfast – sane with the grab and go oatmeal board .
I love the Mediterranean grazing board with Tabbouleh; the Vegan Banh Mi and the fun hairs such as Netflix Night for Two ! For cheese overs there are versions of Vegan cheese , kids will love the backyard Campfire boards complete with s’mores ingredients! For chilly days the grilled cheese and roasted tomato soup board is perfect!
These boards are fun, not complex to make and a great way to bring friends and family together! I think this might be my favorite cookbook to date!

Cute but not very useful
Reviewed in the United States on March 10, 2021
When entertaining Kate Kasbee likes to present food on boards rather than trays, table runners, mats or doilies. Boards are trays without handles with the added attraction of wood. Frankly though, trays are probably more useful and who has enough space to store both?
This is an art book, not really a cookbook. Ms Kasbee instructs us to put food in bowls of different sizes, put the large main dish on a board and put little bowls around it. Her suggestions are grouped by use: meals, snacks, and entertaining, and then by a design concept. The “Ombre” board, for example is foods of the same color family, in this case reds including pomegranate, beet, radish, strawberries, and red pepper for a snack or luncheon.
