Blonde Bliss Vegan Fondue (Vegetarian Times)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 40 mins

From the January/Feburary 2012 issue of Vegetarian Times magazine. This perfectly gooey dairy-free fondue getsits cheesy texture from an unexpected source: potatoes. Blending waxy or boiling potatoes with an immersion blender gives them a stretchy, stringy texture that mimics cheese and adheres to fondue dippers.
