Vegetarian French Onion Soup For Chilly Spring Nights | Recipe

On chilly spring nights warm yourself up with Rebecca Firkser’s vegetarian French onion soup made with deeply browned onions. When seasoned well and mixed with water, they create their own deeply flavorful, totally vegan stock. In a wildly nontraditional gesture, she stirs in fresh asparagus as well as crispy croutons topped with sharp cheddar cheese. GET THE RECIPE ►►

  1. I love this channel. But I hate this form of video. No audio, two minutes. Just boring. And honestly the music is bleh, something I rarely think about for videos like this but it just didn’t work. You have so many talented folks on this channel that could have made this video better.

  2. This is such a strange recipe – it’s literally onion broth with nothing to deepen it. Classic French Onion soup is basically exactly this but with delicious rich beef stock instead of plain water. I really expected this recipe to use some sort of veg/vegan stock, like Kenji’s amazing vegan stock w/ konbu, mushrooms, etc. I feel like this would be pretty shallow by comparison, which is unfortunate. The world needs a great vegetarian French onion soup recipe!
