This is a recipe that I love because it can be changed to your preference or whatever you have in your kitchen. Who says cheese boards have to be for sharing?
All you need to do to make this vegan recipe is fill your lunch container with the cheese board accouterments and pack the crackers separately. Then, when you’re ready for lunch, grab one box out of the fridge and one pack of crackers and enjoy your fancy meal prep.
