Our top fancy plant-based cheeses for vegan charcuterie boards and party snacks.

Vegan artisanal cheeses are our jam. And speaking of jam, charcuterie boards full of fruity jams, plant-based meats, assorted nuts, and dairy-free cheeses are a vibe. Don’t settle for mundane cheese options—we’re getting fancy here. It’s time to level up the appetizer hour with the best vegan artisanal cheese brands around.

Misha’s Kind Foods

Non-Dairy Cheeses

This artisan-crafted cheese was made to be shared with hungry vegan friends. The Los Angeles-based cruelty-free cheese company stocks several flavors of tasty non-dairy cheeses. At the moment we are loving the Lox and French Connection varieties from Misha’s Kind Foods. You’ll wanna snag a tub, or two, ASAP.

Aged Artisanal Plant-Based Cheese Wheels

Available in classic and cracked pepper varieties, these aged artisanal plant-based cheese wheels are made for serious snack sessions. Treeline cheeses are made with cashews, sea salt, and active cultures—we love their tart, cheesy flavor. Bring on the wine and cheese nights and pair these wheels with dried fruit and pretzels.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
