French Onion Soup

I've been making this Onion Soup for years. I guess it's my version of French Onion Soup. It's ridiculously simple, yet is full of flavor and will warm you on a cool day.

2 tablespoons margarine
4 large onions, sliced
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
8 cups vegeatable stock
8 cups beef stock

- In a 5 quart soup pot, saute onions with margarine on medium until soft and turning brown (be patient 15-20 minutes).
- Then mix in flour and seasonings until combined.
- Add in vegetable and beef stock. (I usually just use OXO.)
- Simmer for at least 1 hour.
- When serving, add croutons and and top with shredded mozzarella.
