For the Caramelized Onions

For the Garlic Bread


  • Caramelize the Onions: In a Dutch Oven or other heavy lidded pot, add the onions, olive oil, and sea salt.  Saute on low heat, and stir with a wooden spoon for 25 minutes until the onions begin to reduce. After 25 minutes, add the vegan Worcestershire sauce and saute for 5 additional minutes.
  • While the caramelized onions are sauteeing: place the slices of bread on a sheet pan, and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the minced garlic, garlic powder, olive oil, and red pepper flakes. Stir well, and set aside.
  • Place the sheet pan with the bread in the oven and broil on low for 2-3 minutes until the top turns lightly brown.
  • Remove bread from oven and flip the bread, so the toasted side is down. Brush each of the slices of bread with the garlic and olive oil mixture, saving about 1/2 of the mixture for later.  Place the bread back into the oven and broil for 2-3 minutes until golden brown, but keep an eye so the bread doesn't burn.
  • Remove the toast from the sheet pan, top with the caramelized onions, and a handful of Gruyere on each slice of bread, and broil for 1 minute until cheese begins to brown and bubble.
