Vegan Snacks and Finger Food

Homemade Crackers

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!

Vegan Cracker Recipes

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.

Pinwheels

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.

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!

Hummus

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:

There’s no party without guacamole. Serve it with crackers, tortilla chips, or any of the snacks above.

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).

Vegan Chili Sin Carne
Seriously, what’s a New Year’s Eve party without chili?!

Cocktails and Drinks are important, too.
