Vegetarian French Onion Soup



Vegetarian French Onion Soup


 

Who says French Onion Soup can’t be JUST as good when vegetarian? This easy recipe uses both red and white onions for a bold flavour! An absolutely delicious take on a classic which won’t leave you disappointed!

 

Ingredients:
3 large White Onions (approx 700g),
3 large Red Onions (approx 700g),
2 Tablespoons Butter,
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil,
1 Teaspoon Sugar,
1/2 Teaspoon Salt,
2 Cloves Garlic, minced,
1/2 cup (120ml) dry White Wine,
8 cups (1.8 litres) Low Sodium Vegetable Stock ,
2 Bay Leaves,
4-6 sprigs Fresh Thyme,
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper.
For topping
French bread sliced,
Swiss Gruyere cheese.
Instructions
1. Peel and slice the onions in half lengthways. Place each half flat side down and cut into strips about 1/4 wide. They will look like little semi circles as they fall apart.
2. Heat the butter and olive oil on a medium/low heat until the butter is completely melted. Add the onion, stir to coat then cover and let cook for 10 minutes. The heat should be low enough that the onions do not brown but just begin to get soft. After the first 10 minutes, increase the heat to medium, add the sugar and stir the onions once every 10 minutes. Do not cover the onions for this. Repeat stirring every 10 minutes until 1 hour has passed and the onions are brown and caramelized. The magic will start to happen around 45-50 minutes. See the picture above for reference.
