French Onion Soup

French onion soup is a recipe that many love but few have tried to make at home. Foodie Nicole Burns developed this vegetarian version that is full on flavour but is made with just a few ingredients and an incredibly simple process. The key is to let your onions caramelize that is where the magic happens!

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups thinly sliced yellow onions (about 2 onions)
  • 3 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (optional)
  • 1 cup plain croutons
  • 16 thin slices Swiss cheese


  1. In a pot, melt butter over medium heat and stir in onions with a wooden spoon. Let the onions cook for about 15 minutes until they are soft and golden. Add broth and sherry and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Spoon the soup into 4 ovenproof bowls. Top with croutons and layer cheese over the top of each. Broil on low for approx. 3 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbling. Let rest for a few minutes and serve hot!
