Vegan Fondue Recipe | Vegan Fitness



Vegan Fondue
Fondue is a staple in Europe around Christmas and New Years time. Why you may ask? Well because it’s darn delicious. However going vegan doesn’t have to mean you giving up this cheesy goodness. There are literally hundreds of options out there to make vegan fondue and the best thing is you can choose the ingredients that work for you and have total control over the macros. In this case we used cashews as a base but if you are allergic to nuts you could swap them with sunflower seeds for example…which also makes for a much cheaper vegan fondue. If there are children present, you can swap the white wine with white grape juice. You can use any dips you like, e.g. bread/baguette, roasted potatoes, seitan, roasted tofu or tempeh or your favorite veggies.
