Vegan Canape Recipes
Creating a beautiful, mouthwatering canape spread is an easy task. Simply start with any easily held base, spread with a soft topping, then top with a “main” flavor. From this point, all that’s left is to top your bite-sized treat with a garnish.
Easy to customize to the dietary needs of your guests, these canapes make for the perfect homemade appetizer. They are constructed within minutes, ensuring you won’t waste too much time on prep. Simply prepare in advance, then watch as your guests munch, mingle, and dance the night away!
To create this vegan take on an Italian classic, start with a simple base of vegan french bread. Slice the bread into rounds, and place them under a broiler to toast until browned. If you’re short on time, this step can easily be replaced with your favorite cracker or pita chip.
Peel a raw clove of garlic and gently spread it across the surface of the toasted bread. Though not necessary, this step adds a kick of flavor and heat, making for more memorable hors d’oeuvres. Drizzle a light layer of extra virgin olive oil over the surface.
Using a toothpick, secure a leaf of basil and a slice of fresh tomato onto the bread. Sprinkle it with salt and pepper. All that’s left is a final drizzle of olive oil, and your easy, delicious canape is complete!
Mediterranean Cucumber Cups
This fresh canape makes the perfect addition for any low-carb guest. Rather than starting with the traditional bread-based base, cut a cucumber into thick chunks, roughly an inch or two in length. Using the edge of a spoon, carefully remove a section of the cucumber, forming a divet to better hold the filling.
In a bowl, combine unsweetened coconut yogurt with a spoonful of minced garlic, dried dill, and a splash of lemon juice. Scoop a small spoonful into each cucumber cup, then top with a cube of vegan feta.
A fresh piece of dill makes the perfect garnish for this creamy Mediterranean canape
Sweet and Salty Hummus Chips
For this easy vegan canape, start with a base of pita chips. Cut a piece of fresh vegan pita into bite-sized portions, and then place under a broiler until they are fully toasted. After they have cooled, spread your favorite hummus over each chip.
Line the pita chips up until they are close together, with little space in between. The next step of the assembling process is nothing more than easy, messy fun!
Sprinkle fresh pomegranate seeds, thinly sliced red onion, and shelled pumpkin seeds over the surface of your pita chips. Add a generous layer of chopped parsley for an attractive color contrast, and then, using your clean fingers or the back of a spoon, gently press all the ingredients into the hummus to secure them in place.
