French Onion Soup

My mom used to make french onion soup when I lived at home and it was so good. Whenever I ordered it at various restaurants, it never tastes as good and who knows what they put in there! When I asked her for the recipe, I could ‘t believe how easy it was to make myself! Now I always make it and have added a few of with my own special ingredients.  My family enjoys it, too! (Although, my kids don’t enjoy the pieces of onions, so I serve theirs without them.) I hope you enjoy it, too!

Mom’s French Onion Soup

  • 2 TBS butter (I use Kerrygold)
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 32 ounces of broth (I use Pacific organic beef or vegetable broth)
  • 4 tsp bragg liquid aminos or salt to taste
  • 3 tsp worcestershire (I like Annie’s vegan Worcestershire)
  • 1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast* (this is optional, but so delicious and good for you)
  • 1 heaping tsp of miso* (optional, but so good for you)
  • Piece of bread* (if desired. I used 1/4 of a whole wheat bagel.)
  • Provolone cheese* (this is optional, but a nice added touch. Buy organic if possible.)
  1. Sauté the first three ingredients in your pot.
  2. Add the next three ingredients and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and cook for thirty minutes.
  4. Add remaining two ingredients if using. If you use miso, make sure not to let the soup boil after it is added as I have read that boiling destroys some of its’ beneficial properties.
  5. Add the bread to the individual bowls (if you are using it).
  6. If you are using cheese, slice it and put it on top of the soup. Melt it in the oven.

Total cook time: 1 hour  Serves: 6
