Vegan Boards, by Kate Kasbee

Vegan Boards is the first book to make this trend accessible to people who follow an entirely plant-based diet. In these pages, Kate Kasbee, co-creator of the popular blog Well Vegan, shows you how to create 50 stunning plant-based boards – all of which are remarkably easy to prepare and most require no cooking at all.
