Super-Fast Fondue with Steamed Veggies

Super-Fast Fondue with Steamed Veggies

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.

  • 8 baby potatoes
  • 8 baby carrots
  • 8 medium asparagus, tough ends trimmed, remainder cut in half
  • 8 cauliflower florets


  • 2 Tbs. all-purpose flour
