Vegan ‘Cheese’ Fondue? Yes, it is possible. Paul and I went out for lunch yesterday. A trip to Whole Foods and Trader Joes turns into a day long adventure. We eat lunch at our favorite compliant, vegan restaurant The Lunchroom in Ann Arbor and bring a cooler so we can shop at my favorite markets.

I decided to try making a vegan “cheese” fondue, since the Detroit Lions were in the playoffs. My husband is a die-hard fan. We had already eaten lunch, so I opted for an appetizer for dinner. I didn’t use any plant-milk or vegan cheese. This fondue is made from potatoes, onions, white wine and a few spices. It was really easy, and the empty bowl speaks for itself.

In order to make it even healthier, I used apples and bread for dipping. You can dip whatever you think sounds good. As I was eating it, I also realized this fondue can be made smokey by adding liquid smoke, spicy by adding Sriracha, or take on the flavor of any spice or flavor you choose.

I will play with it and let you know what I create. Just remember, it is all trial and lots of error, so when you are adding a different flavor, remember to take a small amount of sauce to practice with.

Fondue Brew

Saute 2 cups of onions in a large sauté pan until translucent.

Add garlic to cooking onions and continue cooking for another 2 minutes.
Add corn starch/water mixture slowly.
Reduce heat to medium low, and stir.
You will notice the mixture getting thick.

Serve in a fondue pot with fondue forks (I gave mine away when I thought I would never use it again). I was wrong!
I served it in a bowl surrounded by bread and cut apples.
Sprinkle with nutmeg.
