French onion soup
French onion soup is a classic of French cuisine. The first time I tried it in France, I couldn’t believe it was so good. Its delicate, sweet and round flavor is simply addictive.
That’s why I get very picky when, in restaurants, it is served as a liquid broth. French onion soup should be thick, covered with a slice of bread and topped with grilled cheese.
You will like this soup even if you don’t like onions!
- 4 large, yellow onions
- 2 spoons of non-dairy butter
- 1 teaspoon vegetable powder
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- Pinch of pepper
- Slice of bread of your taste
- Handful shreds of non-dairy cheese
Thinly slice the onions. In a saucepan, add the butter and heat to low. Add the onions, and let them cook in the butter until they are softened. Cover with water, add the vegetable powder and flour. Let it simmer on a low heat until you obtain a creamy texture.
Pour into onion soup bowls and add a pinch of pepper. Lay the bread on top of the soup and generously sprinkle with cheese. Broil in the oven for 2-3 minutes, paying attention that it doesn’t burn.
As the cheese is crispy, take it off the oven and serve hot. Enjoy!
