Den ultimative Franske Løgsuppe

Den Ultimative Franske Løgsuppe

Jeg har lavet løgsuppe mange gange og jeg husker tydeligt, første gang, jeg fik det. Vi var på besøg og min onkel og tante i Jylland og havde jo kørt et stykke. Vi var sultne. Og frisk og lækkert brød og en stor portion løgsuppe, når man er træt og sulten. Det glemmer jeg aldrig. Et godt eksempel på noget, ikke dyrt eller avanceret, der sagtens duer som gæstemad.

Min mor lavede også, og denne opskrift er, som vanligt for mig en blanding af hendes opskrift og min egne tilføjelser. Og således blev den ultimative løgsuppe til.

Ingredienser

3-4 store løg
½-1 fed hvidløg
20 g vegansk smør eller Olivenolie eller en blanding
1 1/4-1½ liter bouillon
Fransk suppevisk***
(evt. 1-2 løvstikkeblade)*
(1 spsk mel)*
Friskskværnet peber
1-2 tsk. sukker
(½ dl sherry eller tør rødvin)*
1 tsk. gærekstrakt**
½ tsk. melasse **
Vegansk ost (brug din favorit) til dine ostebrød
(her har jeg brugt Gruyere Melt fra – The Non-Dairy Eveloution) fordi den skulle prøves

Fremgangsmåde

  • Tænd oven ved 200°C
  • Varm olien/smørret i en gryde og sauter løgene et par minutter, og drys så med sukker og sautèr til løgene er karameliserede
  • Drys melet over og sauter et par min. mere til melet er sauteret godt med
  • Hæld bouillonen i en skål og tilsæt gærekstrakt og melasse
  • Tilsæt sherry/rødvin, og derefter bouillonen lidt efter lidt mens du rører godt (kun lidt efter lidt, hvis du tilsætter melet ellers kan du bare hælde det hele i)
  • Lad suppen simrer i 20-30 min. ved middel varme
  • Kom flutes, eller hvilket brød du bruger i ovnen. Først for at riste det
  • Når suppen er klar, lægges 1-1½ cm tykke skiver i suppen og osten kommes på og grilles i ovnen
  • Du kan også grille brødet ved siden af og servere til (det foretrækker jeg)


  • *Ikke et absolut must, men gør klart suppen bedre
    **Gærekstrakten og Melassen tilføjes for at lave en mørk bouillon/suppe. Og de giver også en dybere smag. Du kan også selv lave en mørk bouillon, men det her er den hurtige løsning. Kan også i nødstilfælde undværes.
    ***En Buquet Garni, er en krydderurtebuket, men mindre kan gøre det. Jeg plejer at bruge tørrede og putte i et te-filter. Som minimum tørret timian 1 tsk. og et stort laurbærblad, men derudover bestemmer du selv)

    Vegan Croque-Monsieur/Vegansk Parisertoast

    Have you tried that you have an idea about, how something is and then it’s all wrong. I have always believed that a Croque-Monsieur in the Danish interpretation – Paris Toast – was a clever invention, which it is in a way, but not the way that I thought. In my head it was properly somethhing having nothing to do with Paris wrong!

    Actually a Croque-Monsieur is a totally French thing, called a Croque-Monsieur, and is the Paris Toast (in Denmark) as we know it, just with cheese on top too. That should really be Emmentaler cheese, but since this is a vegan version you use your favorite shreeded pick. Her it is Follow Your Heart Mozarella Shreds

    Inside it is Follow Your Heart Smoked Gouda and Torfuky Hickory Smoked Deli Slices all bought at Greenos Veganske Online Supermarked The “butter” on the bread is FRI from Coop which I like much better than the highly publiced Naturli Smørbar. Fri from Coop has a better color, texture and flavor too in my oppionion.

    I love that I have the oppertunity. The products are fantastic from both Tofurky and Follow Your Heart. But it get’s really expensive, when you HAVE to buy for at least 200 kr. in the cooling section and on top you have the delivery on top too. It would be nice, if we get to a point, where you could buy these products in the local supermarket. And not neccesarily the ones from Naturli. The Danish deli slices, I’ve tried have been horrible. The stuff from Tofurky could pass as the real deal, but is just better, because it is not and also tasting even better. We have come a long way, and the Danish companies are trying but they’re are decades behind a company as Tofurky i.e. and you can taste that.

    I most certainly need to eat more “clean” foods, but sometimes it is nice be able to satisfy that craving and this Croque-Monsieur most certainly delivered satisfaction.

    Croque-Monsieur
    (1 person)

    2 slices of sandwich/toast bread’
    1 slice of Tofurky deli slices (use the one you prefer)*
    1 slice of Follow Your Heart Smoked Gouda*
    App. 2 Tbsp. Follow Your Heart Gourmet Shreds, Mozarella Style

    “Butter your bread and but the deli slices and the cheese between the bread (the “buttered side outwards). Then you either start up your Toast-maker until it is ready, and put the Sandwich in there until the cheese has melted – cut in two on the angle and eat (watch you don’t burn yourself on the cheese). If you don’t have a toaster, just head up a pan to very warm and put the toast on there and roast until brown on one side and flip over and roast until cheese is melted. Good as breakfast, lunch or a quick dinner. Can be eaten with steamed veggies or a salad if you want to make it a more substantial dinner or lunch. Enjoy.

    *Feel free to use more slices both of the Tofurky and cheese if you want, but that will of course make for more frying time.
