"Cheesy" French Onion Soup

Many thanks to my husband, who made this dish for me tonight.

I have always loved French Onion Soup but had given up on the cheesy goodness that is traditionally served atop a velvety onion soup that is traditionally made with beef broth. This vegan version will stand up to the best of the best traditional French Onion Soups and the Daiya Mozzarella shreds were such a good cheese stand in that I am quite sure that even the most avid cheese lover would be none the wiser ;)

Thanks for the perfect meal on a day where soup was just what the Doctor ordered.

"Cheesy" French Onion Soup

1 large Spanish Onion
1 32 ounce box vegetable stock
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
Crusty french bread cut into medium thick rounds
1 handful Daiya Mozzarella Shreds

In a large pot saute onions and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add vegetable stock and simmer over low heat until warmed through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Heat oven to broil. Place bread rounds under broiler until toasted. Place soup mixture in an oven safe dish, add bread round(s), cover with Daiya cheese and place under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly.

Serve immediately.
