Vegan since 1975, I decide to answer the question, "What DO you eat?" These posts tell about some meals and recipes my family and I have enjoyed over the years.

Onion Soup

I made an ONION SOUP in about twenty or twenty-five minutes, and then, to see if I was leaving anything out, I checked out Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child. I guess I left out about two hours of cooking, the butter, and the beef stock. Oh, well.

I sauted a giant sweet onion, chopped into long pieces, in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. I suppose you could develop the flavors with longer, slower cooking, but I was hungry.

I added five coarsely chopped garlic cloves, and a small amount of chopped hot red pepper, because there was a little piece waiting to be used up.
