Vegan Snacks and Finger Food
I know you would be disappointed if crackers weren’t at the first spot of my New Year’s Eve Snacks Round-Up! Crackers are easy to make, the perfect crispy vehicle for all your dips and you can add pretty much any herbs and spices you want!
These are some of my favorite homemade crackers: Vegan Everything Crackers, Za’atar Crackers, and Black & White Sesame Seed Crackers (follow the Everything Crackers recipe and only add black and white sesame seeds on top). And here are even more vegan cracker recipes!
Grissini & Breadsticks
Grissini are the fancy way to snack bread during a party! You can twist them or don’t! They will look cute either way.
I love how easy pinwheels are to make! They look much more complicated than they actually are! Promise! I always use store-bought vegan puff pastry dough and spread it with different sauces. Roll it in, slice it up, bake it, done.
Pretzels & Pretzel-Style Snacks
With a simple baking soda bath, you can make any bready goods into pretzel-style goods! Here are a couple of my favorite ideas:
Mini calzones are the party-friendly version of pizza! But beware, these vegan pizza pockets will be devoured faster than you can look!
Vegan Spring Rolls
Impress your friends with homemade spring rolls!
Vegan Onion Rings
Who doesn’t love fried onion rings?!
Vegan Cheese Sticks
Oh my god. Cheese Sticks were one of my guilty pleasures before I went vegan. Now, they are still my guilty pleasure because I’ve been making these using a vegan cheese block. Easy cheesy! (sorry)
Potato Chips aren’t the only chips you can serve at parties. These homemade bread chips are the perfect alternative!
Edamame – The healthy option!
If you want to offer a healthier option for your guests, Edamame is the perfect choice!
Easy Vegan Dips
I know, I know, I know. Hummus. Classic. But there’s a reason why it’s at every buffet/party. Hummus is amazing, easy and quick to make, plus you can add whatever spices and herbs you want to make it unique! Here are my favorites:
‘Meaty’ Tomato Dip
This dip will fool every meat-eater.
Vegan Cheese Sauce
You don’t need dairy to make an amazing ooey-gooey cheese sauce.
Salsa is refreshing, colorful, easy to make, and a must-have at a party!
There’s no party without guacamole. Serve it with crackers, tortilla chips, or any of the snacks above.
Sandwiches are great for parties because you can prepare them in advance, and people can grab one whenever they feel like it.
Carrot Lox is mind-blowing.
Vegan Chickpea Tuna Salad
The chickpea tuna salad is very fast to make because you just dump all ingredients into a food processor and blitz them up.
Vegan PBJ Coconut Bacon Sandwich
It’s sweet and savory and salty and delicious!
Crowd-Pleasing Chili con TVP
I usually make one large pot of stew for each party. Keep it on low heat throughout the night, so if anyone feels hungry, they can help themselves to a bowl of warming, filling chili with textured vegetable protein (soy granule).
Cocktails and Drinks are important, too.
