Tips and Tricks for Vegan Charcuterie Board
Choosing A Board
Making a charcuterie doesn't mean you have to go out and buy a super expensive board. Just reach for a board or tray that is large enough to hold all you plan to serve.
Even a cookie sheet can be a base for your board. Make sure to pick a tray that has enough room for all your snacks to fit and doesn't leave a lot of empty space. The board needs to look full.
Consider adding in a few bowls of dip. Even if you are placing the same hummus on both ends of the board, the placement can help create balance.
However, a few different dips will help balance out your board flavor-wise as well as visually. For example, a chocolate hummus could be a tasty pairing with some fruit on one end of the tray.
Prepare in Advance
You can prepare your board in advance if you want to prep. Just assemble your board as you would like, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and store in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
Variations To Vegan Charcuterie Board
Change up the snacking options to fit what you have on hand. Add in some pieces of fresh fruit or pita bread for dipping. Create your grazing board to fit what you want to have.
Dipping for Vegetables
You can find tons of recipes for savory dips for dipping veggies. To avoid confusing dips, try making one side of your board savory and another side sweet.
How do you say "charcuterie board?"
Not quite sure how to say "charcuterie?" Here is how to pronounce it: "shahr-ku-tuh-ree."
How do you build a charcuterie board?
Start by placing dip on both ends of the board. Then begin to add vegetables, nuts, and such on the board. I began by laying items around the bowls, and then worked my way out to the edge of the board.

Essentially, yes, the two names are the same thing. You will find that—no matter the name—an arrangement of snacks on a tray or board makes a great appetizer, snack, etc.
