French Vegan Onion Soup recipe (Soup)
Make a bouquet garni by placing bay leaves, peppercorns, parsley, thyme, and garlic in the center of a 12" square of cheesecloth, and tying the cloth's ends together. Set aside.
In a heavy pot, saute onions in oil over medium-low heat.
Add salt to prevent sticking, and stir frequently.
Cover pot with a lid, but leave it slightly ajar.
Onions should saute for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
They will reduce to about a third of their original volume and become sweet and golden.
Add water or stock along with the bouquet garni.
Simmer at least 30 minutes.
Remove bouquet garni.
Season soup with extra salt, soy sauce, or miso if desired.
Place in bowls and top with French bread.
Garnish with scallions or parsley.
