French Onion Soup

Ingredients:

  • Aprox. 5 cups Yellow Onions (4-5 Medium onions)
  • 3 cloves of Garlic
  • 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Aminos (or 1/3 cup soy sauce)
  • 1 Tbsp Savory Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 10 cups water or broth

Directions:

  1. Roughly chop onions. Saute over medium heat until soft.
  2. Add garlic and a pinch of salt. Keep sauteing until onions are translucent.
  3. Mix in balsamic vinegar and aminos. Cook for 5-10 minutes to thicken.
  4. Add savory, thyme, and water/broth.
  5. Cook over medium low for a minimum of 45 minutes. BUT, it really tastes best when cooked for 2.5-3 hours. The longer you let the soup cook, the better it tastes. Time is the best thing for this soup.

Serves 4-6 people

I strongly suggest using aminos rather than soy sauce in this recipe. Aminos are liquid amino acids taken generally from soy or coconuts. It makes a richer, meatier sauce. Side bonus it is lower in sodium and naturally gluten free.

We love this recipe. Serve with a crusty piece of bread, or even a (vegan) grilled cheese. It also makes a great onion gravy that we love to eat over mashed potatoes. You can find that recipe below:

Onion Gravy:

  1. Warm up left over soup over medium heat.
  2. In a separate dish add 1-2 tablespoons of arrowroot powder or pure corn starch to 1/4 cup of soup to make a slurry. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Add the slurry to the rest of the left over soup.
  4. Heat until thickened.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Love, Liv
