Hi and welcome to AlmazanKitchen!
Mr. Ramsay the Owl isn’t really a vegetarian, but he also knows some veg. recipes and shared this one with us. Onion soup isn’t really vegetarian because in an origin recipe there’s meat stock included, but Mr. Ramsay the Owl allowed us to make it this way! Did you know that onion soup was popular at least as far back as Roman times? For now of course it belongs to the France. Try it out!
