AWESOME! I've been searching for years for a vegetarian-friendly version of French Onion Soup. I've been improvising and doing all right, but this is much better! Can't say whether the kids would like it - I don't have any, but my hubby is a very good critic & he LOVED it!

Delicious - rich and flavorful. We sauteed the onions for over twenty minutes and they were not deep brown, but definitely sauteed enough for the soup. We served this as an appetizer at a dinner party and served the beef tenderloin with roasted shallots (on this site) as the main dish.

I used red onions, red wine (instead of white wine) beef broth (since I did not have chicken broth) and added 2 bay leaves along with the salt and pepper, and it turned out terrific. My boyfriend, who is very wary of my cooking since some of my concoctions are not super appealing, even really enjoyed it. Definitely a keeper!

Delicious! Will definitely make again. Mmmmm..... [12-29-2001] Update: I make this soup once or twice a year (whenever I have an extra bottle of wine lying around) and it always turns out perfect. This is *sooo* good! SOOO v*e*r*y good! And there are no fancy ingredients. And yet it's delicious! Why don't I make it more often? Anyways, whoever said this has too many onions... Did I mention this soup is good?

My husband and I love this recipe. I'm vegetarian and he's not, and it provides us both with a hearty meal. Delicious!

Pretty darn good vegetarian French Onion. But the flavor obviously depends based on the wine you use. I used very watered down vegetable stock, so I added in 4 bay leaves and 3 shakes of Worcestershire sauce. And I sauted the onions for probably 30 minutes, so they browned nicely. I didn't have baguette or mozzarella, so I subbed a toasted half slice of plain bagel & a slice of provolone.

I have been craving a good vegetarian onion soup for a long time & think I finally found it. I made my own veggie broth & used a lot of mushrooms & onion skins so the broth would be bold. My husband, who eats meat & always orders onion soup out, said this is as good as any he orders. I think I would double the recipe next time. I cooked the onions for 35 minutes.
