It's our last recipe for 2022, so we thought why not go out with a bang!
It's rare to see a grazing platter without cheese and charcuterie. So I wanted to make some festive party fare that didn't leave dairy free,vegan or vegetarian folk out in the cold.
This Grazing Platter involves 3 recipes - 2 brand new ones and an old favourite - plus a jumble of ingredients you can grab in-store to bring it all together.
Now to the two new recipes. We've got a super easy cashew cheese, and a truly yummy mushroom pate. Both are vegan-friendly and can be easily adapted to suit any dietary requirements.
Supporting the two stars of the platter is an old favourite that goes with them perfectly - Seed Crackers.
The accompanying ingredients are mere suggestions; feel free to replicate what I've used or go rogue and make it your own!
If you're new to creating a platter, here's an easy guide to building one:
The key to an inviting platter is colour, focal points and a variety of small bowls and ramekins to create height and interest.
Firstly assemble your ingredients, platter (or board) and a variety of small bowls. Decide what will be scattered directly onto the platter and what will be put into bowls, ramekins or jars, then arrange them around the platter. Then you can have fun adding your scatter items like nuts, dried fruit and crackers. Voila!
