Vegan Sandwich Charcuterie Board:

This two-step recipe is perfect for guests to choose their own sandwich journey!  Everyone loves a charcuterie board, but it’s hard to serve with vegetarians in the house.  This DIY sandwich adds cheese and avocado for richness.  I would probably cut the bread in half and make sure all the additions were small enough to fit on a half sandwich to make sure this was still easy to eat at a tea party. 

Easy Vegetarian Tea Sandwiches

Cream Cheese Veggie Pinwheels

Vegan Tea Sandwiches

These vegan sandwiches have not one possibility, but three possible flavors!  Roasted pepper & pesto, sweet onion & hummus, and traditional cucumber sandwiches make up a delicious trio of vegan finger sandwich recipes.  These are delicious even if you aren’t vegan!
