A few weeks back I made a big announcement on Instagram and Facebook. I (Kate) wrote another cookbook! It’s called Vegan Boards and I could not be more excited for it to be released into the world. Vegan Boards features 50 gorgeous plant-based appetizer, snack, meal, and dessert boards for all occasions. The cookbook also has over 60 brand new vegan recipes to serve on those boards that I think you are going to absolutely love. Today, I’m going to give you a sneak peek inside Vegan Boards and dish on some fun pre-order details!
You’ve probably seen images of striking snack boards on Pinterest or in your Instagram feed over the last year or so. Boards are such a fun and beautiful way to share food! While there are many books out there on how to build charcuterie boards, Vegan Boards is the first cookbook to show you how to make impressive platters free of meat, cheese, and other animal products. By using seasonal fruits and veggies along with nuts, crackers, dips, olives, and other plant-based foods, you can create colorful and mouthwatering spreads your friends and family will love.
Vegan Boards, Behind the Scenes
It’s hard to believe it’s been four years since Katie and I turned in our manuscript for Frugal Vegan. I had a blast working on the cookbook with Katie and had been thinking about writing another one for a while. However, my freelance work as a recipe developer and photographer was steady and busy and I didn’t think I’d get the opportunity. Then, 2020 happened. Diving headfirst into writing and photographing Vegan Boards was such a fun and rewarding way to spend my summer at home.
Over the course of three months, I spent nearly every day building boards, taking and editing photos, and perfecting recipes. I live in a very small duplex with my fiancé and our dog, so distractions are plenty and space is at a premium. Our living room became my photo studio and our kitchen was a constant disaster zone. My fiancé, Andrew, was very patient and did more than his fair share of dishes. He snapped this photo of me building the Fall Harvest Board.
Here’s a sneak preview of a few more plant-based boards and recipes you’ll find inside Vegan Boards.
Pre-Order Bonus for Vegan Boards!
Vegan Boards will be released on February 2, 2021 but it’s already available for pre-order on Amazon.

In return, you’ll receive a PDF with a little note from me and a couple of boards you can start building right away.
