They said it couldn’t be done…but here it is, a veganized version of the classic French onion soup!
This recipe comes from Allison Rivers Samson, owner and operator of Allison’s Gourmet Online Vegan Bakery and Confectionary. She is famous for her ultra-decadent gourmet vegan chocolates and other sweets, but it doesn’t end there.
Allison is also the author of the “Veganize It” column for VegNews magazine. Her recipes feature veganized versions of many comfort food favorites, like macaroni and cheese, lasagna, burgers–even Caesar salad! These recipes and so much more can be found here on her blog. I am a big fan of Allison’s work, both sweet and savory!
Here’s a basic rundown of this deceptively simple, yet impressively elegant recipe:
Slice onions very thinly and sweat them in a large stock pot with a bit of salt.
The most critical step in this recipe is the caramelization of the onions. It is important to allow the onions to really cook down nice and brown. This is going to provide a very rich flavor to the soup.
Once the onions are done, the pan gets deglazed with a bit of white wine then vegetable stock and seasonings are added and the soup simmers for a few minutes.
Top with a toasted vegan cheese French bread slice and serve immediately!
This definitely looks worth a try. Thanks for this. best wishes, rv
That looks like rich, tasty and delicious soup 🙂
