These pretty appetizers are the perfect way to start a vegan feast! In France, we like to start any important dinner with an “apero” consisting of drinks and finger food. The more important the event, the more sophisticated the appetizers will be.

I have tons of vegan appetizers’ recipes in the pipeline and this is just the start of me posting them! Stay tuned!
