Vegetarian French Onion Morel Soup

Makes 4 Servings

Rich, earthy, and completely vegetarian, this French onion soup is so full of flavor that you won’t miss the veal stock (although you could substitute veal stock or 1 1/4 cup Le Québécois veal demi glace and 2 ½ cups water if you are a committed carnivore).

Vegetarian French Onion Morel Soup
  • 4 tbsp Unsalted Butter, plus extra for spreading
  • 3 medium Onions, sliced
  • 3 ¾ cups Vegetable Stock
  • 5 tbsp Cooking Sherry
  • 8 medium Dried Morels or Fresh Morels, chopped
  • 1 tsp Sherry Vinegar
  • 4 slices French Bread
  • 1 cup grated Gruyere or Fontina cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped Fresh Parsley
  • Salt & pepper to taste.



Melt butter in large frying pan. Add onions and caramelize them.


Transfer browned onions to a large saucepan, cover with stock, and add sherry and the morels and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the vinegar and taste for salt & pepper.


Preheat the broiler to toast the French bread. Spread butter on the bread and heap with grated cheese. Broil the cheese toasts and place one in each warmed soup bowl and ladle the soup over top. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve.

  1. Ok… my mouth just watered a bit from looking at these pictures. Not eating meat, it’s rare that I get to try French Onion Soup… I’ll have to try this one. 😉
