Just in time for the weekend, here’s a delicious Epic VEGAN Hummus Board for a fun party! Serve with dips, veggies, and Vegan chips and pita bread.
Friends, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked over on Instagram @ReluctantEntertainer, when am I making a vegan board?
Epic VEGAN Hummus Board
Well, a few weeks ago, we knew that a few friends were vegan, and a few friends loved hummus! SO, we put this board together to please everyone at the party!
But honestly, I don’t do boards simply to please people. The beauty of making EPIC boards is that there is usually a little something on the board for everyone!

By the way, here’s to celebrating 100,000 followers on Instagram this week! I’m humbled and grateful for my little community over there! Thank you if you follow me over there, with all my stories on life, food, the Whoodle, outdoors, sprinter van, and our fixer upper!
What’s the size of the board?
This is the biggest board that I have, with a lip around it so the food does not fall off. The links are at the bottom of this posts, but this board is the 28 inch board.
How many does this board feed?
I get asked all the time, how many does this board feed? ACK! This is a hard question!
The truth is that it depends on many factors!
- Is the board going to be the entire meal for the party?
- Are guests bringing other dishes?
- Is it a snack board, or a dinner board? What will the side dishes be?
- Is is just a grazing board?
Ingredients for a vegan board
We bought 8 oz tubs of HOPE hummus brand from Fred Meyer (Kroegers): Thai Coconut Curry Hummus, Kale Pesto hummus, Spicy Avocado Hummus, and Cashew & Almond Dip (Costco). Then we added Trader Joe’s Buffalo Style Hummus!
Veggies included: Mixed colored peppers, cucumbers, organic carrots, blanched green beans, baby tomatoes, and baby bella mushrooms.
I was so happy to find at Kroger a small freezer by the bakery that had a bunch of vegan foods! So I picked up B-Free Pita Breads (frozen), and added Trader Joe’s multigrain crackers, baked Mediterranean crackers, and sweet potato corn chips!
If you want, garnish with little flowers (but totally optional).
28-inch Charcuterie Board
Friends, here are the boards that I LOVE. A “lip” is the secret to the best charcuterie or dinner board, because the food does not fall off. [This post has affiliate links. Every purchase from these links supports RE at no extra cost to you. Thank you!]

Rememember it says it is “not food safe,” so you need to prepare the board by either laying down parchment paper under the food, or you can “season” it like we did.
How to season a Charcuterie Board
If a wood board says it “not food safe,” you can lightly sand it down with sand paper, and rub down with beeswax and mineral oil.
We used this butcher block and cutting board oil conditioner after we lightly sanded the board down.
Or, lay down parchment paper! Easy peasy!

Don’t worry about perfect
The bottom line for making a specialty board (let’s say gluten free, vegan or vegetarian), is don’t worry that things have to be PERFECT.
What I have found is that people really appreciate the effort.
Hosting is not about perfection for me, it’s about connection and bringing people together!
