Serving Suggestions


Here are some helpful and delicious serving suggestions for Vegan French Onion Soup:


Crispy Vegan Croutons


Make homemade vegan croutons by cutting bread into small cubes and toasting them in the oven with olive oil, salt, and herbs. Serve the soup with a handful of these crispy croutons on top for added texture.


Vegan Cheese Toast


Instead of broiling the cheese on top of the soup, make some vegan cheese toast on the side. Slice a baguette and top each slice with vegan cheese. Toast in the oven until the cheese is melted and slightly golden. Serve the cheesy toast alongside the soup.


Herb Garnish


Sprinkle some fresh herbs such as chopped parsley, thyme, or chives on top of the soup before serving. This will add a pop of color and freshness to the dish.


Pair with a Salad


Please serve the Vegan French Onion Soup first or alongside a fresh green salad. The crisp and refreshing salad will complement the rich and savory flavors of the soup.


Vegan Grilled Cheese Sandwich


Take your soup to the next level by serving it with a warm and gooey vegan grilled cheese sandwich. Use your favorite vegan cheese and bread, and grill until the cheese is melty and the bread is crispy.


Add a Dash of Balsamic Glaze


Drizzle some balsamic glaze on top of the soup just before serving. The sweet and tangy flavor of the balsamic glaze will enhance the overall taste of the soup. Remember, these are just suggestions, and you can get as creative as you want when serving Vegan French Onion Soup. Enjoy!

Let's gather the ingredients!

  • 5 cups water divided
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
