Vegan ‘Cheese And Onion’

Vegan ‘Cheese And Onion’

It took me a while to get the hang of making caramelised onion without oil. I find the trick is to sauté finely sliced onion in diluted soy sauce then I finish with balsamic vinegar. When you add onions cooked in this way to hummus and fermented tofu (Taifun Feto) you get something akin to cheese and onion. Great in a sandwich or on toast!

Free from: oil

Gluten, wheat free: use suitable bread

Nut free: use suitable plant milk
