Oktoberfest snacks to take home: Vegan recipes for inspiration


A vegan snack is a versatile meal that you can design differently every time with different components. Here you can get tips and inspiration for plant-based breads, spreads and salads.

A snack is an uncomplicated meal that you can also prepare as a vegan version and bring that Oktoberfest feeling home with you. You can either buy almost all the components or prepare them yourself. If you choose the latter, you can avoid unnecessary additives, industrial sugar and high amounts of salt and easily use leftover food and vegetable scraps.

For more Oktoberfest atmosphere, vegan white sausages should not be missing – these will be served at the Oktoberfest for the first time this year, see For the first time: vegan white sausage at the Oktoberfest. We looked at them: Vegan white sausage at the Oktoberfest: does the veggie sausage taste good?

In any case, we recommend that you pay attention to organic quality when buying the ingredients. In this way you avoid chemical-synthetic pesticides that harm the environment and your own health. You should also rely on local and seasonal products to avoid long transport routes. You can find out which types of fruit and vegetables you get in which month from German cultivation in our seasonal calendar.

By the way: If you want to round off the vegan snack with a Kaiserschmarrn suitable for Oktoberfest, you can also do it purely plant-based: Vegan Kaiserschmarrn: A recipe without animal products.

For example, you can serve carrot and cucumber sticks, cherry tomatoes or peppers as a vegetable side dish with vegan snacks. It’s best to do this based on what’s seasonally available. In winter, when fresh vegetables are scarce, you can also use fermented vegetables (e.g. pickled gherkins).

Salads can also enrich your vegan snack in terms of taste and appearance. You can find recipe ideas here:
