How to make it

  • In a pot over medium heat, melt the butter and the oil.
  • Add the onions, sugar, and salt and cook for 1 minute while stirring.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions have carmelized, which should take anywhere from 20 - 40 minutes
  • Add the flour and cook while stirring for 1 minute
  • Add the broth, sherry, and thyme and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Season to taste with the salt and pepper.
  • Preheat the broiler and broil the slices of bread until lightly toasted. Add butter to the bread if you'd like.
  • Put the soup in 6 ovenproof bowls and set them on a baking sheet.
  • Cover with the bread slices, which you may need to cut to fit.
  • Put the cheese on top of the bread slices.
  • Put the baking sheet under the broiler until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

    " It was excellent "

    Just made this tonight. The soup was just right! I used my own veg stock and made sure to give my onions enough time to carmelize. Only stupid thing I did was to leave it under the broiler too long. Partially charred my gruyere which should have been the best part!! I will definitely try this again though!!

    Oh! I'm excited about this. You've reawakened a forgotten mission - I remember how disappointed I was when I found out FOS is made with beef stock. It's great to have a pre-approved vegetarian version to try.
