This is a slimmed down version of one of my favorite party foods--cheese fondue. Mashed cannellini beans slim down the recipe but keep a thick and luscious texture! For more recipes like these, visit SparkPeople

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 8 ounces reduced-fat Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 can (15 ounces) cannelini beans, rinsed and drained (Cannellini beans are white kidney beans.)
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

In a food processor, combine the beans, the mustard, garlic, lemon juice and half the wine. Process until smooth.

Heat mixture in saucepan until simmering. Add remaining wine, then add 1/4 of the cheese at a time, stirring well to ensure it melts before adding more cheese.

Once cheese has melted, transfer to your fondue pot or a crock pot set to low. Makes 12 servings (1/4 cup)

Serve with blanched broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, or carrots; chunks of whole-grain bread and breadsticks; grilled chicken or turkey chunks; or raw mushrooms, pepper strips or cocktail onions. (Add-ons not included in calorie count!)

 

Cheese Fondue Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheese Fondue Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
