Spectacular recipe. I'd increase the sherry quantity to 1/2 cup, otherwise perfect :)

This was a good base to work from however I could tell the measurements of the ingredients were off as well. For a four cup serving which equates to 32 ounces (your standard vegetable broth portion) I used two mid sized onions, two garlic cloves, two tablespoons of butter & one tablespoon of olive oil. I also adjusted the cooking sherry down to 1/4 cup and substituted out red wine vinegar for the sherry vinegar. In addition, I used regular yellow mustard for the dijon so as to not sweeten it up as much. Flour was also reduced down to one tablespoon. Lastly, I salted, peppered and added ground parsley at the end to get it exactly how I wanted it. The result was an aromatic gourmet soup that not only tasted amazing but looked beautiful as well. I would have rated this recipe five stars had they assembled it the way I have mentioned above.

I made the soup last night and had a bowl with lunch this morning and am rather disappointed. The soup is bland and I am really not looking forward to eating the rest of the pot. Made a written with one exception - no sherry vinegar on hand.

Great vegetarian version of my favorite soup! I didn't have any sherry or sherry vinegar so I used merlot and apple cider vinegar because that's what I had on hand. Still turned out great! I also made sourdough bread bowls for this soup ... YUM! I just posted the recipe for the bread bowls on my Zaar page, but it came from http://cooklikeyourgrandmother.com/2008/09/how-to-make-sourdough-bread-bowls/ ...totally worth checking out!

The proportions were way off and there ended up being too much onion... and I only used 2 large onions. The soup was very bland (aside from the onion overload), and overall, I was very disappointed.

I have made this soup many times. DH never had French onion soup until I made this. Now, whenever we go out, he orders French onion soup. His comment is always the same, "Yours is better," I make my own roasted vegetable broth which has almost a "beefy" taste (if you can call it that). I don't usually use sourdough bread but any Italian bread I happen to have handy.
