Vegan Fondue From Vegan Lunch Box

Vegan Fondue From Vegan Lunch Box

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.

Vegan Fondue From Vegan Lunch Box

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.

    Thanks for the recipe recommendation. I’ve loved everything I’ve tried from Vegan Lunch Box and I’m sure the fondue will be no exception.

    this looks tasty! I dont have this cookbook, but I have the nutritional yeast cookbook by Stepaniak that also has a fondue recipe that I once made and thought it was inspired and amazing. I am guessing they have similar ingredients??

    Serving this with roasted vegetables sounds wonderful. I really like this cookbook and now I have another reason to drag it out again. Thanks!

    Nina – Thanks, I don’t have the nutritional yeast cookbook so I can’t compare ingredients. The lunchbox fondue version has silken tofu and carrots as the main ingredients.

    tofufreak – It’s one of my favorite recipes from the cookbook.

    Maggie – Yup, roasted veggies is great with the fondue. Give it a try sometime. :-)
