Onion Soup In the French Tradition (vegan)
Recipe by Veganlicious
A Vegan rendition of the traditional French Onion Soup. It was mighty tasty indeed.
Serves 4 people
For the Ingredients:
4 tablespoons vegan margarine
8 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup dry red wine
8 cups vegetable bouillon (I used 2 vegetable bouillon cubers)
8 thin slices French bread
2 cups freshly grated soy cheese
Step 1 Melt the soy margarine in a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat.
Step 2 Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, 25 minutes or until a golden, caramelized brown.
Step 3 Add red wine and deglaze, allowing the wine to be absorbed, about five minutes.
Step 4 Add vegetable broth and turn heat to high, bringing to a boil, then reduce.
Step 5 Allow to simmer for 30 minutes.
Step 6 In the meantime, toast the bread and place in oven-proof bowls with 3/4 grated spy cheese distributed among bowls.
Step 7 Pour soup into bowls, top with remaining soy cheese, and place under broiler for 3-5 minutes, until soycheese browns and bubbles. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
We have a nice cheese available to us called Cheesley. It sort of melts, I also used a bit of my own vegan parmesan cheese as well.
