I love fondue. It’s one of those super fun things to eat, what with all that stabbing and dipping with extra long forks. And fire too. Well, a little tea light flame but it’s still fire.
I first saw the recipe for vegan fondue on Jennifer McCann’s Vegan Lunch Box, probably one of the first food blogs I started reading way back when. I was amazed and impressed at the innovation and thoughtfulness that went into those lunches.
Her cookbook Vegan Lunch Box: 130 Amazing, Animal-Free Lunches Kids and Grown-Ups Will Love! was released recently, which I received a copy from the publisher. It’s packed full of recipes and tips, useful not just for lunch but for any meal or snack.
Take the lunchbox fondue recipe for example – Jennifer packed it in a thermos for her son’s lunch, that in itself is such an inspired idea. But you can also serve it in a small crockpot or fondue pot. I used a fancy butter warmer alongside bread and roasted vegetables including red potatoes, carrots and shiitake mushrooms. So simple and easy to make and so cheesy and creamy to eat.
I’m so looking forward to trying many more recipes from the cookbook and maybe a few bento style lunches too.
