Vegetarian French Onion Barley Soup
January is prime soup making weather in my kitchen. And this mash-up recipe of French Onion Soup blending with Vegetable Barley Soup is one that I’ve made often over the past few winters.
It’s a pretty simple recipe – the most laborious part of it is the cutting the onions and caramelizing them. If you aren’t in a rush and don’t feel like keeping an eye on the sauteeing onions, use one of my favorite Healthy Kitchen Hacks: How To Caramelize Onions in Your Slow Cooker.
French Onion soup traditionally uses a beef broth base, so to keep this recipe vegetarian but still get that meaty, umami flavor, I used a few splashes of soy sauce.
