Learn how to make Vegan French Onion Soup in the Instant Pot. The easiest and most hands-off way of making this French Bistro Classic without compromising on the flavor! No standing around sautéing for hours!
In the midst of soup season, I am coming at you with another vegan version of a comfort food classic.
Vegan French onion soup – this popular French soup is usually made with beef stock and caramelized onions, then often served gratinéed with croutons or a larger piece of bread covered with lots and lots of cheese floating on top on cheese topped bread on the side.
This vegan version is every bit as delicious but made with 100 % plant-based ingredients and made in the Instant Pot. Which means, no standing around sautéing for hours!
Making French Onion soup at home the traditional way can be a bit labor intensive as onions need to be caramelized slowly in lots of butter. Cooking them too quickly over heat that’s too high, and you risk burning them and end up with a scorched, bitter taste.
In this Instant Pot French Onion Soup recipe, the caramelization part is completely hands-off. The onions slowly caramelize in your Instant Pot while you can get on with your day and there’s zero risk of burnt onions in the end.
The onions are pressure cooked pot in pot. If you put them directly in the inner pot, the high heat pressure cooking will make them into a mushy jam, delicious but broken down onions. With pot in pot, the onions cook at lower heat but high pressure and caramelize and get delicious! You can use these over hummus/cream cheese toasts, add them to pasta, add them into dips and what not. In this recipe we use them to make a delicious French inion soup.
The cooking time for this soup is long but active time is just a few minutes! Tag me and do rate the recipes when you try!
