The Most Delicious Vegan High Tea Recipes
For me, enjoying high tea is one of those wonderful food based experiences that I absolutely love. It’s a quintessentially English experience that even non-English folks can enjoy. What’s so wonderful about it is the chance to dress up, spend time with your favorite people, and spend a couple of hours eating finger foods, drinking tea, or the occasional mimosa.

Carrot cake always reminds me of visiting my grandmother’s house as a little girl. She was known for her baking skills and the best part of the cake was icing. She wasn’t a vegan, but I bet she would enjoy this cake.
I’m going to admit that the idea of chocolate hummus was a bit challenging for me.

Coconut milk is one of the most versatile cooking ingredients in the world. It can be used in sweet or savory dishes and its taste is so subtle. This vegan chia pudding has a multi-layered flavor that doesn’t overwhelm you.
There are so many amazing components to this recipe. Fudgy, brownies, and cupcakes. And, also, peanut butter. The most challenging thing about this recipe is avoiding eating the entire batch of brownies.
I used to work with international students for 10 years and I would always get packages of dates from the Middle Eastern students. I always felt guilty because I would stuff cheese in them and wrap bacon around them (something that is not done). But, this is a recipe that I could have shared with them!
I’m notoriously picky about frosting. Usually it just tastes like sugar instead of having layers of flavor. Cashew frosting is not only somewhat healthy, it’s sweet without making you feel like you’re going to go into sugar shock making these carrot cake cupcakes a must have.
Mediterranean mezze platters are one of the most versatile and fun ways to feed a group of people. Savory options for vegans at high tea can be challenging to figure out. This platter will have guests asking for more.
