French Onion Soup

Delicious, rich French onion soup is sure to keep you cozy during a chilly night. Caramelized onions with red wine and Worcestershire gives it a decadent flavor and the bread and cheese pushes it to another level.

Ingredients (makes 4-8 servings)

  • 1 stick butter

  • 4 medium onions, red, yellow or white (or combo), peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary

  • 1 sprig fresh thyme

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1 cup red wine

  • 1 T vegan Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 T corn starch

  • 1-2 quarts vegetable broth to reach desired consistency

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  4. Add broth, salt and pepper and simmer for 10 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, broil baguette slices with olive oil or butter until toasted, about 2 minutes. Then ladle soup into an oven proof ramekin or bowl, top with baguette slice/s and cover top with shredded cheese, about 1/4 cup. *

  7. Place soup ramekins on cookie sheet and return to broiler, broil until cheese is browned and bubbling, about 3-5 minutes

*alternatively, broil cheese on bread separately and add to soup instead of putting soup bowl in oven
