French Onion Soup

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by PinkCherryBlossom

This replaces the beef stock with vegetable stock and yeast extract making it veggie friendly. This must be served with French stick croutons and lots of melted cheese on top. It is illegal not to and if you try, the food police will arrest you...

I chose this (out of the many on here) because the intro made me laugh! I couldn't find the vegemite so I used some dark miso. I sauted the onions til they carmelised (added some sugar to help it along!). It tastes gorgeous and, once I've dished it up, I'll post a photo. Many thanks!
