I absolutely love making vegan appetizers! There are sooo many amazing recipes out there. But sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming when you’re scrolling through Pinterest. So I put together an amazing list of my favorite vegan appetizers for you! Let the snacking begin!
As always, I teamed up with some fellow food bloggers for this roundup. Just click on the heading above each photo to see the actual recipe.
We’ve got something for every taste! We’ve got:
- several vegan dips (for example vegan spinach artichoke dip & creamy garlic onion dip)
- vegan buffalo wings (using cauliflower and Brussels sprouts – so much healthier than traditional buffalo wings!)
- summer rolls with peanut dipping sauce
- classics like stuffed mushrooms, edamame, and guacamole
- creative vegan appetizer recipes like portobello mushroom bruschetta
- several vegan cheese recipes that are perfect for a cheese platter (for example an almond ball & vegan cheddar)
- stuffed mini peppers
- and soooo much more!
And if you’re looking for even more vegan appetizers, check out my roundup of 30 vegan party recipes I posted last year.
