Super-Fast Fondue with Steamed Veggies

Super-Fast Fondue with Steamed Veggies

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Easy to double, this recipe is great for an office lunch group or a small, quick dorm dinner party. Dipping in veggies as well as bread cubes makes fondue a healthier treat. Can'’t find Gruyere or Emmentaler cheeses? Just substitute a high-quality Swiss or Jarlsberg. The flavor will be milder, but just as tasty.
Steamed Vegetables
  • 8 baby potatoes
  • 8 baby carrots
  • 8 medium asparagus, tough ends trimmed, remainder cut in half
  • 8 cauliflower florets
  • 2 Tbs. all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ½ lb. Gruyère or Emmentaler cheese, grated or cubed (3 cups)
  • 1 clove garlic, cut in half
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • 8 2-inch chunks crusty bread

1. To prepare Steamed Vegetables: Place potatoes on microwave-safe plate, cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high 1 minute. Arrange other veggies on plate. Cover veggies with plastic wrap and heat on high power 4 minutes, or until tender.

2. To make Fondue: Measure flour into microwave-safe bowl. Stir in broth gradually to prevent lumps. Add cheese and garlic. Cover, and microwave on high 2 minutes. Stir, then cook 2 to 3 minutes more, or until smooth and no cheese lumps remain. Remove garlic pieces, and stir in nutmeg. Serve immediately with bread chunks and steamed vegetables.

The fondue is good but this recipe seems to overlook the fact that fondue must be served in a fondue pot to keep it warm. Otherwise you only have about 2 minutes to eat it before it starts to thicken and become unmanageable. Also, when it says "baby potatoes" they must mean the smaller fingerling potatoes - I used regular baby potatoes and they took at least four minutes to cook in the microwave. I would prefer to just steam the veggies rather than microwave, it only takes marginally more effort. And I would trade out the baby carrots for apple wedges.

Where do you add the potatoes? Are the 8 potatoes just for dipping and not a part of the sauce
