French Onion Soup

Onions on white

Ahhh, French Onion soup, my favorite vegetarian mistake. I loved this so much in my omnivore days that I just assumed since it was an onion soup that it had to be vegetarian. Boy, was I wrong. I was just three months into being vegetarian when on of my coworkers informed me that French onion soup is made with beef broth! Imagine my horror, especially since I hadn’t eaten beef in nearly a decade. But hey, we all make mistakes, and from that day forward the French onion soup and I parted ways. But now here we are, reunited…and it feels so good (sing along!). This recipe is contributed by Alicia C. Simpson from her book Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food(The Experiment, 2009).
