This is one of a series of posts of homemade plant-based alternative recipes to the most popular store-bought soups. French onion soup is delicious, but is usually not even vegetarian as it often contains beef stock. This French Onion Soup (Crowded Kitchen) combines caramelized onions with a vegan cheesy bread topping.
If used, choose vegan butters free from palm oil. Keep recipes away from pets due to toxic ingredients (fresh dough, onion, garlic, mushrooms, jackfruit, vegan meats/cheeses etc). Never give leftover croutons (or any stale bread, crackers etc to garden birds or wildfowl as they could choke (fatty foods like butter or grease can also negatively affect waterproofing and insulation of feathers).
Vegan French Onion Soup (Short Girl, Tall Order) is made with a rich savoury mushroom broth, caramelized onions and buttery toast, topped with vegan mozzarella.
1-Pot French Onion Soup (Minimalist Baker) cooks the onions in oil, vegan butter or water, to maximise natural sweetness and create a tender texture. Add a pinch of salt to infuse with more taste.
