The Ultimate Vegan Party Platter

This post has been sponsored by MorningStar Farms®. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This Ultimate Vegan Party Platter is sure to be the life of the party at any gathering! Filled with fruit, vegan chicken nuggets, dips, and more, this party platter will disappear in no time. 

I hope you’re ready to impress all of your friends and family when you show up with this epic party platter. You might even be hoisted up in celebration while everyone sings “for he’s a jolly good fellow…” because they’ll be so thankful for this abundance of food.

Unlikely but still totally possible.

MorningStar Farms and I teamed up to share this recipe with you and to talk about two of their vegan (!!!) products: MorningStar Farms® Chik’n Nuggets and MorningStar Farms® Grillers® Crumbles™. Both of which are featured in this vegan party platter!

MorningStar Farms makes plant-based protein for every kind of eater. I’m really excited that they are continuously adding vegan products to their range! Their products are delicious, without the meat, and still easy to prepare. We love the products featured in this post, but another favorite is the Buffalo Wings!

How to Build the Ultimate Vegan Party Platter

When I build a party platter, there are five categories that have to be represented on the serving board: meaty, dips, crunchy, fruity and fatty.

Meaty

Just because this is a vegan party platter doesn’t mean we can’t have some meaty protein! We’re making it plant-based thanks to MorningStar Farms. I served their Chik’n Nuggets with a side of ketchup and the Grillers® Crumbles™ on top of queso for a meaty dip.

Dips

Dips are essential! For this party platter, we’re dipping into that meaty queso, hummus, and ketchup for the Chik’n Nuggets.

Crunchy

You need some crunchy elements to scoop up all of those delicious dips. I served tortilla chips for the queso, crackers for the hummus and cheese, and celery and carrots for a refreshing crunch.

Fruity

A little sweet to balance out all the savory. I went with grapes (essential, in my opinion), blueberries, and dried apricots.

Fatty

Give me all the creamy and fatty goodness. Our fatty elements here are that homemade chive cheese ball, store-bought vegan cheddar cheese cut into cubes, almonds, and olives.

Even if you don’t have exactly every element that I have in my vegan party platter, you’ll still have a complete and delicious platter if you have a few foods from each of the categories above. Get creative!

What would you feature on your ultimate party platter?
