Vegan Christmas Charcuterie Board

Whip out this Vegan Christmas Charcuterie Board at holiday parties for a fun and festive appetizer! Guests will love the red and green themed board, complete with fruits, veggies, and dips perfect for snacking.

Vegan Christmas Charcuterie Board

If you're going to make a charcuterie board, why not make it festive?? I love the red and green theme of this board.

It may look complicated to make, but this vegan charcuterie board is actually really easy to put together. Once you have all your fruits, vegetables, dips, crackers, etc. prepped, then all you have to do is arrange them on a board or platter.

For charcuterie beginners: this board is especially beginner friendly because the red & green theme makes the board look aesthetically pleasing without much effort. Simply place your foods throughout the board and fill in all the gaps.

Why I love this Vegan Christmas Charcuterie Board

  • Dietary needs — this recipe is easily made dairy-free, plant-based, oil-free, sugar-free, and gluten-free. Plus, your guests can choose which foods they eat, so you can put out something for everyone!
  • Fun and festive appetizer  — the red and green theme is so fun, it really pulls the board together. Even if you don't use the exact same foods as I did, your board will still look beautiful
  • Super Easy — to make this vegan charcuterie board all you need to do is buy some red and green foods, chop them up and put them on a large cutting board or platter. So easy!

Ingredient Notes

The key to this board is to pick out red and green foods. Try to select an even amount of each, so the board looks balanced. You can also pick out some "neutrals" like bread, crackers, nuts, etc. Even though they aren't red or green, they won't stand out on your board and break the theme.

Here are some ideas for colorful fruits and vegetables to include:

  • Red: Red Grapes, Red Apples, Raspberries, Blood Orange, Red Pepper Hummus, Red Pears, Radishes, Cherries, Tomatoes, Red Peppers
  • Green: Green Grapes, Green Apples, Broccoli, Celery, Pumpkin Seeds, Edamame Hummus, Green Pears, Kiwis, Cucumbers, Snap Peas
  • Neutral: Blanched Almonds, Bread, Hummus, Pita, Crackers

How to make a Vegan Christmas Charcuterie Board

Step 1. Select your ingredients. Try to choose the same number of green and red foods, to keep the board balanced.

Step 2. Prepare all your ingredients. Slice the fruits and vegetables. Make hummus. etc.

Step 3. Arrange the charcuterie board. Place groups of each food onto the board. For best results, start with the largest items like containers of dip and hunks of bread. Then, try adding the same food in several different areas of your board and create a good mix of red and green across the board. Fill in any gaps with small items like nuts and seeds. Serve and enjoy!

Hi Could you please confirm two things:1. The amount of salt. Seems like too much. 2. The directions say there is lemon juice in the dressing but it’s not listed under ingredients. ThanksL.
Hi there! Confirming that the two teaspoons of salt in the dressing is correct. I didn't salt the cauliflower when roasting it or the salad after it was done, so this amount of salt was perfect. If you're concerned about it you can decrease the amount of salt in the dressing and then add more at the end if you need it. As for the lemon juice, SO sorry about that! It was a typo in my directions and I've removed it now. Hope this helps :)

This looks lovely! Do you have a recipe for the red pepper hummus also? Thank you!
Hi Martha! I don't have a recipe for red pepper hummus on my site. I suggest taking a traditional hummus recipe and blending in roasted red pepper.

I tried these and they were delicious! A bit dense but flavorful and the "buckeye" blend of peanut and chocolate was on point! Recommend!
Yay! I'm so glad you liked them! -- Elizabeth

Hi, these look amazing. I was wondering, could I used powdered peanut butter in place of creamy for the recipe? thanks
Hi Grace! There is already some powdered peanut butter in this recipe, so adding more might make the texture more gluey. Also, the real peanut butter adds some fat, which helps create flavor. That said, if you want to use powdered peanut butter, I would suggest mixing it with a high-fat liquid like coconut cream and then measuring out 2/3 cup. Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes :) -- Elizabeth

You mention using vegetable broth in your introduction but it isn’t included in the recipe
Hi Becky - thanks for pointing this out. I have removed mention of vegetable broth from this post. You do not need any vegetable broth. The mushrooms will release natural liquid which will prevent any sticking. -- Elizabeth

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
