How to Build the Perfect Vegan Cheese Board with Miyoko's

Nothing brings us more joy than a plate full of vegan cheese! Cheese boards are just so great for every occasion: as a light snack, for a dinner party, and for Friday nights in (how about some Netflix and wine?). Plus, putting one together takes so little prep time, you'll have less work, less cleanup, and more time to sit back, relax, and enjoy.

So what do you need in order to put together the perfect vegan cheese board? Cheese connoisseurs will say that the classics are, "aged, smoked, and creamy" cheeses, but honestly, the possibilities are endless! These days, there are so many types of cheese to choose from we don't even know where to start. To help, we've teamed up with Miyoko's, an artisan plant-based cheese company, to put together our version of the perfect cheese board.

*Shoutout to Miyoko's for leading the way in transforming the future of creamery. We're super excited to share their suggestions to complete your social gathering.

One Hard, Aged Cheese

Try Herbes De Provence Cheese Wheel at Mylk Guys

The secret weapon to a good cheese board is a variety of tastes and textures. Coated in herbs and lavender, the Herbes De Provence Cheese Wheel is mildly tangy with a touch of sweetness. It slices hard but melts in your mouth for a rich and creamy taste.

One Soft, Creamy Cheese

Try Classic Double Cream Chive Cheese Wheel at Mylk Guys

Seriously, we're all about tastes and textures here. The Classic Double Cream Chive Cheese Wheel is the best of both worlds. With double the cream and double the richness, it's buttery and whips up real nice. We love the hint of onion flavor, too.

One Smoked Cheese

We found the perfect semi-hard cheese wheel (but actually though!) and it's smoked to perfection. The Smoked Farmhouse Cheese Wheel has a rich, smokey, and sharp tone that'll leave your taste buds exploding with flavors.

One Interesting Cheese

Try Black Ash Cheese Wheel at Mylk Guys

Now, we think all cheese boards need a lil' something offbeat to spice things up. The Black Ash Cheese Wheel has a special smokey, bitter, and buttery tone that's hard to capture anywhere else. This one will be a knockout for sure!

BONUS: Limited Edition

Try Limited Edition Fireside Chai Cheese Wheel at Mylk Guys

Last but not least, we had to share the Limited Edition Fireside Chai Cheese Wheel. If you love sugar and spice, you'll love this one. It has hints of cardamom, cinnamon, and ginger, blended with savory, aged flavors for a nutty sweetness (Grab this one now! It's only available online at Mylk Guys).

Be sure to top off your cheese board with some exciting flavors and appetizers! A few suggestions are:

  • Bread & Crackers: baguettes, breadsticks, mini toasts, and seeded crackers
  • Fresh Fruits & Dried Fruits: figs, grapes, apples, pears, apricots, cranberries, jams, and jellies
  • Veggies: carrots, celery, tomatoes, cauliflower, and bell peppers
  • Nuts & Seeds: walnuts, pistachios, almonds, peanuts, and flax seeds
  • Vegan Deli Meats: vegan salami and prosciutto

Above all, add the snacks you like and enjoy - it's your cheese board so we say, "go with whatever floats your boat!" Use what you already have and then add your favorites. With a cheese board, there's something for everyone to enjoy!
