There’s something magical about cooking onions. If I could bottle up the scent of onions simmering with herbs and spices, I would name it ‘Comfort Food’ as many delicious meals start with a base of onions.
One of my favorite nostalgic soups is French Onion Soup, but I’ve steered clear from making it in recent years because the base is often made with beef stock and I’m a vegetarian.
However, now with Better Than Bouillon No Beef Base, I can make my favorite traditional French Onion Soup again with rich satisfying flavors, but vegetarian style!
I love how easy Better Than Bouillon is to use, and the Vegetable Base has long been a staple in my pantry. Unlike boxed liquid broth that can spoil quickly in the refrigerator, or worse bouillon cubes that are as hard as rocks, the Better Than Bouillon concentrated base is smooth, rich and scoopable.
The base blends into liquids quickly making it easy to adjust my flavors in broths, sauces or marinades.
Better Than Bouillon offers other vegetarian and certified vegan products including: Seasoned Vegetable Base, Roasted Garlic Base, Organic Seasoned Vegetable Base Vegetarian No Chicken Base.
I’m huge fan of saving time when cooking so in addition to using the Better Than Bouillon base, I’ve incorporated the use of a pressure cooker in this French Onion Soup recipe.
