This Vegan Cheese Fondue is made rich and creamy in 1 pot in just 10 minutes. It’s rich, creamy, and easy for beginners. Serve at your holiday parties, as a game day appetizer, or for a Valentine’s Day date night at home. 



  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter (or cooking oil of choice)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour* (see notes)
  • 1 cup (8 oz.) lager-style beer, at room temperature * (see notes)
  • 1 cup (8 oz.) vegetable broth
  • 16 oz. shredded vegan cheese (we used 1 bag of cheddar and 1 bag of mozzarella)
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon grainy mustard, to taste
  • Salt and pepper, if needed to taste

Dippers of choice, such as

  • Crackers
  • Chips
  • Cubed bread — we like to used sourdough or french bread
  • Carrots, sliced
  • Celery, cut into small pieces
  • Steamed broccoli
  • Steamed cauliflower
  • Granny Smith apples, cubed
  • Roasted cubed potatoes
  • Cherry tomatoes


  1. In a medium pot over medium heat, add the vegan butter. Once melted, add in the garlic and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  2. Add in the flour and mix it through until everything is evenly coated. Cook for about 1 minute.
  3. Pour in the beer, vegetable broth, and mustard and mix until uniform. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  4. Once simmering, slowly begin to add the cheese a little at a time, stirring well between each addition to ensure a smooth fondue. Adjust the seasonings to taste and season with salt and pepper as desired.
  5. If you have a fondue pot, transfer it to the pot and light it to keep the sauce warm. Serve with dippers of choice, and enjoy!


  • To be sure if your beer is vegan, check
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week. The fondue will thicken up as time passes. What we like to do it transfer it to a pot over medium heat on the stove and slowly mix in vegetable broth as we warm it to smooth it and thin it out.
  • Alcohol is used in fondue not only to add flavor to the dip but to also lower the boiling point and keep the cheese from becoming stringy or curdling.  Instead of beer, a dry high quality wine would work as well! I have also seen fondues made with brandy or whiskey but I have not tried it myself. If you would like to skip the beer in the recipe, we suggest you use vegetable broth in its place as well as add a squeeze of lemon juice or a touch of vinegar for acidity.
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch can be used in place of the 2 tablespoons of flour.
