Plats Du Chef French Onion Soup

Its almost the end of August, which means the end of summer, and fall is quickly sneaking up on us. That means its time for soup, soup, and more soup! Ehh, what am I saying, I could eat soup any time of year. Its always so wonderful and flavorful and filled with anything you could imagine. From veggies, to cheeses, or even pasta, rice or tofu.

I have known about french onion soup for ages, and knew that it had beef broth in it right from the beginning. I just pushed it into the back of my mind as a food I'd never eat and didn't give it a second thought. But one day going food shopping with my vegetarian brother, he pointed out a vegetarian french onion soup. I knew it was time to try it.

Each box has two frozen soups. They look kind of weird right out of the package. Each soup is layered with cheese and croutons on top.

Excuse the ugly photo. As the soup heats up in the microwave, you need to stir it up, so instead of that pretty melted cheese all on top, everything gets mixed together. It doesn't make it any less delicious though!

This soup is definitely oniony, but not overpowering. Its salty, and the cheese is mild and chewy. I love the melted cheese, there is so much in each bite. The croutons get soft and absorb the soup, and when you bite down they explode with flavor. I have never had real french onion soup, so its hard for me to compare them, but I know that this is one delicious, comforting vegetarian soup.

Have you tried this vegetarian french onion soup?

Bye from the veggie side!
