Usually, French Onion Soup is made with a load of butter and beef stock, but that doesn’t mean that vegans don’t get to enjoy this timeless classic! Here’s an easy vegan french onion soup recipe to keep you warm on those rainy days.
French onion soup is one of my favorites by the way, it always warms me up and cheers me up when the grey skies roll in!
Note: I have a great way of making the perfect crouton for this type of soup. If you take a slice of vegan sandwich bread and cut a big circle out of the center with a ring cutter and bake it until toasty and crouton-like, it will sit perfectly on top of the soup. You can even top it with some vegan cheese and watch it soak up all the soupy goodness!
First, over a low heat, sautee the onions in the butter until they have caramelized and turned golden brown. This is the most important step in the whole process, so be patient. The longer you cook them without burning them, the better your soup will be!
Then, add the mustard, thyme and stir. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes without letting anything burn. Add the stock, soy sauce, wine, and pepper. Simmer 10 minutes and then serve this delicious vegan soup!
