Ingredients

  • 5 onion thinly sliced
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp bottled minced garlic
  • 2 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 8 cups vegetable broth no sugar listed in ingredients
  • 8 slices 100% Whole Grain Bread no high fructose corn syrup, see notes

Instructions

Instant Pot® Directions

  • Program for sauté. Add butter. Once butter is melted, add onions. Cook onions until they are softened and browned, about 10 minutes.
  • Add vegetable broth, bay leaves, and thyme. Program for manual-high. Set time for 10 minutes. Allow for NPR (natural pressure release) for 10 minutes, or completely.
  • Preheat broiler.
