Vegetarian French Onion Soup

The April Blake Blog has published this great Vegetarian French Onion Soup recipe using our Edward & Son’s Natural Bouillon Cubes: "..Boxes of soup are getting pricier and pricier, which led me to improvise my own method for getting the perfect French Onion soup that makes everyone come running for a bowl. And it had to be vegetarian all the way through, because I only make occasional exemptions for chicken broth (no chunks allowed) when I am dining away from home, one notable exemption being soup at Amelie’s. I hate to say it, but I like my French onion soup now WAY more than the boxed kind. To the point where the boxed kind isn’t even very good anymore... I am in love with the Edward & Son’s Natural Bouillon Cubes for this soup. They are vegan, gluten-free, and incredibly flavorful. I haven’t used the Not Chick’n yet, but it’s on my shopping list for my next trip to Earth Fare." Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons butter or non-dairy spread
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 medium yellow onions (or two giant Spanish onions)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup pinot grigio
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 non beef bouillon cubes (Edward & Son’s Natural Bouillon Cubes)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • Slice(s) of crusty bread, lightly toasted (I like to use sourdough or French bread)
  • 3-4 slices of provolone cheese, or non-dairy substitute such as Dayia.
Directions
  1. Put the butter and olive oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add onions and garlic and saute for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently so the onions don’t caramelize.
  2. Add the pinot grigio to deglaze the pot, then stir.
  3. Add the stock, water, bouillon cubes and soy sauce. Stir and reduce heat to medium low. Leave simmering for an hour.
  4. When you’re ready to serve: Set the oven to the broil setting. Use a ladle to fill an oven safe bowl 3/4 of the way full. Fill the bowl with however many slices of bread of takes to cover the surface area.
  5. Cover the bread with 3-4 slices of provolone cheese. Set under broiler and watch closely. Remove from oven when the top of the cheese is bubbling and lightly browned. Eat immediately once it’s cooled enough!
