Vegetarian French Onion Soup Recipe

Most onion soup (French onion soup) recipes start with a beef broth. This version is 100% vegetarian (actually it’s vegan without a dairy cheese topping) and delicious!  To top it off it is VERY cheap to make!

French Onion Soup @ Mykonos Taverna
3 Tbsp butter
4 large onions, sliced thin
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
dash of thyme
4 cups water
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp dry white whine (optional)
dash of white pepper (optional)

Sauté the onions in butter. Add salt, mustard and thyme. Cover and let cook for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water and soy sauce (and wine/white pepper if using). Simmer 15 minutes or until heated through. To serve, you may put in soup crocks and top with a slice of toasted french bread or croutons and cover with cheese – Gruyère is traditional, but provolone or mozzarella also work. Place under broiler until cheese is melted and bubbly.
