Low-Calorie Cheese Fondue Made with Cauliflower
Fondue It Yourself!Unlike that friend who always shares your most humiliating stories with the wrong person, cauliflower won't embarrass you at this year's holiday party. By mixing some of the pureed veggie into this dip, we came up with a fondue recipe that's as healthy and low in calories as it is cheesy and delicious. Even cauliflower skeptics will flip for this. Dip it good!
