Making a cheese board is a fun and easy option to serve snacks for a gathering, party or girls night in! It’s a great social meal and a way of finding a combination of flavours and textures that you will enjoy.
What makes it a keto vegetarian cheese board?
Not all cheeses are vegetarian so this cheeseboard has been made cheeses that have not been made with animal rennet.

Making a keto vegetarian cheese board
Before you reach for your cheese and crackers, choose your board. Depending on how many cheeses and people you are serving, choose a large or small board. Circular or rectangle are good sizes to use.
If you don't have a cheeseboard you can make your own by using parchment paper over a large tray.
I follow these 4 steps when making a keto vegetarian cheese board:
1 - Choose and place the cheese
It's easy to get carried away with so many varieties of cheese to choose from but I keep it simple and use 4 different vegetarian cheeses.
- Soft - A goats cheese or brie
- Firm - Edam or Gouda
- Blue - Stilton
- Aged - A strong cheddar
Cheese Serving Tip
Cut the hard cheese into half and cut one half into easy to eat cubes.
Crumble ⅓ of the blue cheese for presentation.
Decorate the top of the cheeses with berries, fresh herbs or nuts.
The cheeses we used in the photo were a brie, soft goats cheese with herbs log, a stilton cheese and a mature cheddar cheese.
2 - Place keto crackers on the board
The recipes for these crackers in the above board are:
3 - Add the Savoury
Serve your savoury dips and snacks in small bowls and place around the tray. I like a variety of low carb savoury snacks such as marinated olives, pickles and a savoury chia jam as a minimum. A star fruit jam goes very well with cheese too.
4 - Add the Crunch
Finish your cheeseboard with sliced crunch vegetables such as radishes, cucumber and celery. Fill in any gaps with nuts such as walnuts, almonds and macadamia nuts.
Now all you have to do is enjoy and eat!
