Mum's Amazing French Onion Soup
One of my favorite comfort foods ever. And this is by far the best recipe for French Onion Soup I've ever come across. Leave it to Mum. :)
5 cups thinly sliced sweet onions (Vidalia are the BEST!)
2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive oil
1/2 of stick Earth Balance Marg.
3 tsp Worstershire sauce
1 tsp minced garlic (pre-chopped in jar)
10 cups of Vegetable Broth (Or 10 Cups of water 12 Veg Bouillon Cubes)
Large croutons or slices of french bread
Daiya Mozzerella Cheese for Melting on top (Or you can use Provolone or Swiss)
salt, black pepper & white pepper
1/2 tsp dried thyme(optional-if used add while sauteing onions)
Saute onions & garlic in butter and oil, until transparent, add broth or water/cubes and worstershire sauce. Simmer for 30 minutes to an hour until onions are very tender. Taste and add water or salt & white pepper. To serve, put croutons or slightly dried slices of french bread in bowls. Ladle soup over bread, top with cheese and broil until cheese just starts to bubble.
