Japanese Aomori black garlic is a fermented delicacy made in pure sea water, this gives it a sweet and mild flavor. If you cannot find it locally, just use roasted regular garlic instead to get that great garlic flavor with no sharpness.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Total Time 16 minutes


  • 1 cup raw cashew pieces, soaked in 2 cups of filtered water for 6 hours, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup no- or low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ¼ cup vegan Japanese lager beer (such as Sapporo or Asahi)
  • ¼ cup drained homemade kimchi or store-bought
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp dried shiitake powder (or 1 rehydrated shiitake mushroom cap, minced)
  • 1½–2 tbsp white miso, to taste
  • ½ tsp Japanese Aomori black garlic (see headnote) or 2 cloves roasted garlic 
  • 1 tbsp organic cornstarch
  • 1 loaf crusty bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • Japanese Carrot Pickles and Shichimi Togarashi for serving (optional) 


  1. Place the cashews, broth, beer, coconut cream, kimchi, nutritional
    yeast, shiitake powder, miso, garlic and cornstarch in a blender. Blend until
    completely smooth and combined.
  2. Transfer to a medium saucepan. Start on medium heat, then lower the
    heat to low and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened. This will take
    about 6 minutes. You want to be able to dip bread in the fondue without it
    being too thin or too thick. Turn off the heat and leave the fondue on the
    stove for another 6 minutes, whisking occasionally. If you have a fondue pot,
    you can skip that last step and just leave the pot over the candle while you’re
  3. Spear a bread cube onto your fondue fork or regular fork, and swirl it
    in the mixture. Serve with carrot pickles and sprinkle with shichimi togarashi,
    if desired.
