Goat Cheese and Pumpkin Fondue

RECIPE TYPE Fondue
What’s not to love about fondue? And you can even call this one “healthy” fondue as it has less cheese than any regular fondue. You’d be lying but you can say it. Well, it does have a wee bit less but, honestly, that just means you can eat more of it. I did!

Goat Cheese and Pumpkin Easy Fondue

1

Whisk together 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cardamom and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. I prefer to grind my own cardamom from seeds, it just has more bite.

Now, this is quite a bit of brown sugar in my opinion but the goat cheese will cut down on the sweetness of it. You can use less but I don’t think the dish will be as balanced, but please experiment with it and see what you like. If anything, it’s just another reason to keep making this dish over and over again, right?
