Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • organic fresh parsley or chives for garnish
  • Kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 Cup pale ale
  • 4 Cups organic low-sodium vegetable both
  • 1 Cup vegan organic mozzarella
  • 4 Cups 1-inch cubes sourdough or ciabatta bread
  • 1 1/2 Pound sweet organic onions, thinly sliced

Directions

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a heavy-duty pot over medium-high heat. Add onions and reduce the heat to medium. Cook, sitrring occasionally until the onions begin to brown, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoons salt and continue to cook, scraping the bottom of the pot frequently until the onions are well browned, 20 to 30 minutes. Add the ale and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat slightly and simmer until most of the ale has evaporated; about 2 minutes. Add the vegetable broth and simmer for 10 minutes to allows the flavors to blend.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the bread cubes with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Spread in a single layer until golden. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes. 

Remove from the oven, push the bread cubes closely together and sprinkle with the cheese. Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 3 minutes. 

Sprinkle with parsley or chives.
