French Onion Soup

What? French Onion Soup vegan style? How do you get that lovely rich flavor without meat stock? Try this recipe and see for yourself. You won't miss the meat. 


1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
8-10 onions-thinly sliced in crescents
Pinch sea salt
4-5 cups spring or filtered water
Several pieces brown rice mochi-1/4-inch cubes
Soy sauce
Fresh flat leaf parsley-minced
Sourdough bread croutons

In a soup pot, heat olive oil and begin sauteing onions with a pinch of sea salt. Continue to saute until lightly browned and quite reduced, as long as 25-30 minutes. Gently add water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat for about 15 minutes. Add mochi cubes. Season lightly with soy sauce and simmer for about 7 minutes more, until mochi melts and becomes creamy. Serve garnished with parsley and a few croutons.

NOTE: The best croutons are made from slightly stale bread that is cubed and dried in a warm oven until crispy. Another way is to deep-fry the bread cubes just before serving the soup. Sinfully rich!
