Why not
refresh the apples a little? A simple dessert or an intro to a meal:

2 apples
a few drops
squeezed lime
a few drops
of honey

Peel the apples and cut them finely, squeeze in the lime juice, add a little honey. Mix it with your
hands.

Add the ingredients to taste, until it feels like a little dish and not just really good
apples.

Honey in this one, so not vegan, but close.

The lime juice will keep the apples from getting black.
