Vegetarian French Onion Soup

vegetarian french onion soupIngredients:

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 5 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt, plus a bit more to finish
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup dry sherry
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh thyme, chopped, or 1/2 tsp dried
  • black pepper to taste
  • 6 1/2 inch slices of french bread
  • 6 slices of a white, melting cheese

In a pot over medium heat, melt the butter and the oil. Add the onions, sugar, and salt and cook for 1 minute while stirring. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions have caramelized, which should take anywhere from 20 – 40 minutes.

Add the flour and cook while stirring for 1 minute. Add the broth, sherry, and thyme and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Season to taste with the salt and pepper.

Preheat the broiler and broil the slices of bread until lightly toasted. Add butter to the bread if you’d like. Put the soup in 6 ovenproof bowls and set them on a baking sheet. Cover with the bread slices, which you may need to cut to fit. Put the cheese on top of the bread slices. Put the baking sheet under the broiler until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
