French Onion Soup Vegan Gluten Free Healthy Recipe

French Onion Soup Recipe.  What a great time of year in Wisconsin to get onions from the farmers markets.  I’m not sure if it is the freshness or what, but these onions brought me to a good amount of tears today!  If you love onions as much as us I think you will like this soup.  Hopefully I can share a great leek soup recipe with you in the future as well.  Enjoy.

Ingredients:

5-6 large onions peeled and thinly sliced, I prefer the yellow onions

3 Tbl. Olive Oil

3 Tbl. Arrowroot Powder

1/2 cup of dry white wine (optional)

6 cups of veggie stock

Bay Leaf

1 tsp. vegan Worcestershire sauce

3 springs of fresh thyme or 1 tsp. dried

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

In a large frying pan heat oil. Add onions and stir until well browned about 30 min. Add garlic and flour and cook for a few min. more.  Stir in wine and deglaze the pan.  Add the stock, Worcestershire, bay leaf and thyme. Simmer for about 15 min.  Discard herbs before serving.

I prefer to serve with a side salad instead of the traditional bread and cheese.

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1-teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Grease a donut pan with coconut oil or butter in my case!
  2. In a large bowl add flours, baking soda, spices and salt, and stir to blend. In a medium bowl whisk eggs, add maple syrup, zucchini, coconut oil and vanilla extract together. Pour egg mix into your flour mix and stir until combined. Add in 1/2 cup of your chocolate chips and stir through the batter.
  3. Using a measuring cup with a spout pour into your prepared donut pan. I filled my pan up pretty generously. (almost to top) they do puff a bit.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and pop out onto wire rack that is on top of a baking sheet to cool. Fill donut pan and repeat.
  5. Optional Frosting (melt butter or coconut oil about 1/4 cup, add 3 Tablespoons of cocoa powder and a Tablespoon of honey.  Dip or frost donuts – sprinkle on your toppings.  If looks too runny add more cocoa.  It will set a bit when it cools.

Buckwheat Muffins or Pancakes

Buckwheat Mini Muffins: Buckwheat Pancake Option
serves about 4 or 24 mini muffins

1 cup unsweetened almond/coconut milk & 4 tsp. Vinegar. Combine milk and vinegar let sit 5 min. together before adding
1 cup buckweat flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup wanuts/nuts (optional)
1 banana
2 Tbl. Maple syrup
1 egg
1 1/2 Tbl. butter or coconut oil melted. (more for frying if making pancakes)

Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and nuts.  Mash and add banana, syrup, butter/oil, egg and milk mixture.  Mix. Add to greased mini muffin pan. Bake 10-12 min. or until done.

For pancakes heat greased skilled to medium. Drop batter by 1/4 cup. Watch for small bubbles about a min. Fip for about another 2 min. or until done through. Re-grease pan as needed. * if too tick of batter just add a little almond milk *

Serve with plain yogurt, syrup, walnuts, blened berries of your choice.  Enjoy~

My kids love pancakes and mini muffins.   This is a healthy alternative my kids loved.  They were initially worried about the dark color, but once they tried them they loved them.  Traditional pancakes are loaded with extra syrup.  When I made these pancakes they ate them without the extra syrup!  My husband liked them better than regular pancakes too!  We have been on a healthier diet for a few months now, so that probably contributes, but over all, I’d say these are going to be a new breakfast staple, or in the case of the mini muffins – anytime healthier snack.

Black Bean & Guacamole Pizza Hack

This is one of my favorite pizza hacks. Start with a cheese pizza and scrape off as much cheese and reserve for the top. I usually do half because my kids still prefer cheese only.

Once the cheese is off then add guacamole.

Next add black beans. I use canned beans that are rinsed.

After the beans are on sprinkle the cheese on top and bake to your liking. Usually just a little longer than the box suggests for me.

Enjoy!
