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!
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.
