Ingredients

Soup

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil (or your preferred cooking oil)
  • 4 medium yellow onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt, more to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3/4 cup red wine
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 quarts of vegetable broth, low sodium
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 baguette, sliced and toasted

Cashew Mozzarella Cheese

  • 1/4 cup raw cashews, soaked in water 2-4 hours
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk, hot (be careful not to burn the milk)
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon tapioca flour/starch
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, thyme, bay leaves, sugar, salt and pepper. Sauté until the onions are very tender & caramelized, about 40-50 minutes. Stir often to avoid the onions sticking to the pot. If they start to stick, you can add a few splashes of oil and turn heat a little lower. Keep pot uncovered
  2. Now, add the red wine and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer on low for about 10-15 minutes, or until the wine has evaporated.
  3. Remove the bay leaves and stir the flour into the onions. Turn the heat down to medium-low and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Stir often so the flour doesn’t burn.
