Caramelized Onion & Arugula Grilled Cheese



  1. Slice your onion and add it to a skillet over low heat with your vegan butter, salt, and crushed red pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring every 5-7 minutes, for about 45 minutes until the onions are jammy and fully caramelized. Transfer them to a paper towel-lined plated to absorb any excess grease once finished.
  2. Take your sourdough bread and coat one side of each slice with some mayo. Place the mayo side down in a skillet over medium-low heat, and place 2 slices of smoked gouda on each slice of bread. Cover with the lid and allow to cook until the cheese is nice and melty.
  3. Once the cheese is melted and the bread is browned, add a generous amount of caramelized onions, some arugula, and some Dijon mustard. Close up the sandwich and press down to seal it together.
  4. Cut in half and serve!
