5 Minute Macadamia Cheese + Vegan Crudités Board by Minimalist Baker

The star of this (30-minute) vegan crudité is Minimalist Baker’s 5-minute Macadamia Nut Cheese! Yes, 5 minutes!

Unlike most other nuts, macadamia nuts don’t require soaking because they’re already so tender and soft, and blend up beautifully with just the help of a little water. Inspired by her Macadamia Ricotta recipe, the cheesy flavor comes from nutritional yeast, which is a vibrant yellow yeast that’s packed with vitamin B12. Delicious and healthy option this holiday season. The flavor and texture of the nut cheese with roasted vegetables is delicious  especially with beets and carrots, which sweeten and caramelize when roasted. Get the recipe HERE.

The NEW Crudité Platter by Half Baked Harvest

Unlike other crudité platters, this one is LOADED with textures and layers of flavor. It has a really great mix of fresh and fried veggies including fried asparagus, fried mozzarella, and stuffed zucchini blossoms. Fried veggies with a light avocado ranch… SOOOO good. This platter is still super healthy, but yet there’s a hint of indulgence from the fried veggies. Get the recipe HERE.
