I enjoy cooking and experimenting with new meals, but I do have a list of dishes that I can eat day and night and never get tired of them. I’m also a vegetarian that makes me want to look for new tasty ways to serve my favorite veggies, cheese and bread. For more vegetarian dinner ideas check this post.
My love and I, being new parents, don’t get much time to go out and get into romantic surroundings, so we try to bring Romance home as much as we can. I try new HEALTHY recipes (we don’t want to let ourselves go), but occasionally let us have some cheat days as well.
When my love got me a fondue set earlier this year I thought I must try and make us a simple romantic dinner but I haven’t gotten to it until last week. We had a special date and I figured it was a good occasion to try and make a nice cheesy bready dinner for us, with some veggies on the side.
I started going through recipes and they all included Gruyère cheese which I couldn’t find, so I substituted it for white Cheddar cheese. Some say because it’s a type of a Swiss cheese, you should rather go for that one.
The Quick and Easy Fondue Recipe for two:
- 1/4 cup butter;
- 1 glass of white dry wine;
- 1,5 cups shredded Yellow Cheddar cheese;
- dash of lemon juice.
Prep: 5 min;
Cook: 10 min;
Serve in: 15 min;
In a pot over medium heat, melt butter, sauté garlic for a few minutes and then add flour; stir it well so it’s nice and smooth. Add Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Gradually add wine an keep stirring until our concoction starts boiling. Reduce heat to low and add cheese. Let it melt. Add a dash of lemon juice.
Transfer to your fondue pot over low heat.
We ate it with cubed French bread, cauliflower, broccoli and celery (well, I ate it with celery and it was yummy…for me)
Hope you enjoyed this idea of a Quick Romantic Meal for Dinner For Two. Let me know if you try to make it and share your dinner pictures and thoughts with me 🙂
