Here are 4 vegan lunch and appetizer ideas! It’s so easy, no cooking is required! These are great for a quick meal or bringing something to a party. Dude, too easy. I have a billion more vegan seafood ideas to come. I LOVE these dish!!!! Granted I haven’t tried the real versions of most of these so let me know how you think these compare.
I love celery but like onions less so I used a ton of celery and not much onion. I imagine most people are the opposite so feel free to use more of what you like and less of what you don’t like. Also, if you chill these they will taste better as the flavors grow but I didn’t wait.
If you ditch the bread on these recipes you’d have a ton of keto/low carb options here!
