You’ll want to start with the caramelized onions, because they’re gonna take the longest! They’re super simple though. Slice your onions into as thin half moons as you possibly can (you can even use a mandolin). I personally don’t like really thick onions, but you can cut them to whatever thickness you’d like. Add them to a skillet over medium heat with your grapeseed oil, salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar, and fresh thyme. Allow these to cook for 20-25 minutes, stirring frequently until browned and caramelized.

Once your caramelized onions are ready, lightly toast both sides of some freshly cut sourdough bread. Top each slice with a hefty amount of the caramelized onions, and also a generous amount of shredded vegan mozzarella cheese. Place each slice on a baking tray, and place under the broiler for a few minutes until the cheese is bubbly, melty, and browned. I like to put it in the middle rack of my oven for this, instead of directly under the broiler- since vegan cheese takes a bit longer to melt & you don’t want to torch the bread. When the toast is done, take it out of the oven & garnish with fresh thyme leaves, and if desired some salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil.

And that’s it! This recipe is super easy, and you can always double or triple the recipe for the onions & keep them in the fridge for quicker toasts. I could seriously eat these all day, & trust me… you’ll be hooked once you try it!
