Vegan Raclette

Christmas and New Year's Eve is just around the corner! So it's time to find your raclette again. Since we are big fans of dumplings and goulash for Christmas, we only serve raclette on New Year's Eve. For the first, but also the last time this year. Raclette is not only the perfect leftover meal after the Christmas holidays but also the ideal meal to share with friends and family.

Of course, you can serve raclette the way you and your friends like it the most! But we made a little list full of ingredients we love the most, to inspire but also to cover you with the most important things (so you don't forget anything). We always add lots of veggies to our list, cause we are really looking forward to eating something fresh again after days and days full of dumplings and goulash! As a cheese substitute, we use a homemade cheese sauce made from potatoes, carrots, and cashew nuts and buy vegan sliced cheese. Both cheese alternatives are working super easy and are melting and turning brown in the pans. We also linked you to our onion dip below in the post, which also goes very well with a raclette. To get you covered with new ideas, we added a Mexican, oriental, Mediterranean, and sweet version too.

We are very happy that [EDEKA] (https://www.edeka.de/) supported us with this recipe! You can find all the ingredients for our raclette at EDEKA supermarkets. They offer a huge selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, which is super important for preparing a raclette. We used EDEKA organic potatoes, organic zucchini, and organic red onions, which come from controlled organic production. Many of the products also come from regional agriculture, which supports local farmers.

Vegan onion dip

600 g (21 oz)
20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 large, yellow onions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp plant-based oil
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 400 g (14.1 oz) silken tofu

  4. Now add about 3/4 of your onion-garlic-mix (put the rest beside for later). Start mixing again until everything is a delicious mash.
  5. Season with salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne and top with the remaining fried onions.
