Onions in the Slow Cooker

I love French Onion Soup, but it’s rarely vegetarian so I have to make my own. This is by far the easiest and best tasting recipe I have found. The slow cooker is my favorite way to develop complex flavors just by throwing stuff in a pot and cooking for a long time.  This recipe is from one of favorite cookbooks, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker by Robin Robertson.

Oh, and don’t forget to use your Onion Goggles!

French Onion Soup with Cheesy Bruschetta

My Tweaks: I usually only put 1/8 cup olive oil in the bottom of the cooker to reduce the fat. I often use yellow onions and add a little bit of sugar instead of sweet onion, just because yellow onions are cheaper and I have them on hand in larger quantities. Instead of vegetable stock, I use Edward & Sons Not-Beef bullion because FO soup is usually made with beef stock. I use daiya vegan cheese and gluten free bread for the Cheesy Bruschetta and I float them on top of the soup.
