The trick to creating a deliciously vegan & EASY charcuterie board is knowing the vegan meat/cheese world – and knowing what you like. I am obsessed with Daiya’s smoked gouda cheese. It does not have that nasty Daiya taste – it slices easy, looks pretty and doesn’t have any over-powering flavours. I also love Field Roast’s smoked apple sage sausage. These two products are almost always the stars of my vegan charcuterie boards. (For my local friends – I always buy the smoked gouda at Save On Foods and the sausages at Save On Foods or The Real Canadian Superstore).
