Low-Fat Cheese Fondue

W-S Journal

  • Yield: 4 servings ( Serving Size: servings )
  • Prep time: 10 Minutes
  • Cook time: 20 Minutes


  • 1 small head(s) broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into half-inch pieces
  • 1/2 head(s) cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 tablespoon(s) Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 cup(s) dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon(s) flour
  • 1/2 loaf(s) French bread
  • 1 clove(s) garlic, minced
  • 8 ounce(s) low-fat Swiss or cheddar cheese, or a mixture of both
  • 1 teaspoon(s) olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


1. Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes and place on a baking sheet for toasting at the last minute. Cook the broccoli, cauliflower and carrots separately in boiling salted water for 2 minutes or until tender and crisp. Refresh under cold water and drain. Arrange the cooked vegetables on a platter.

2. Grate the cheese into a bowl and toss with the flour. Oil the fondue pot to prevent the cheese from sticking.

3. Just before serving, lightly toast the bread in a 400 degree F oven. Bring the wine to a boil with the garlic in the fondue pot. Stir in the cheese using a wooden spoon. Boil the fondue for 1 minute. When the cheese is completely melted, stir in the mustard, salt and pepper to taste. Serve at once.
