French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup

An easy, tasty and healthy soup for that winter chill.

  • 2 large yellow onions, sliced thin and rings separated
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 tbs. butter
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-quart organic chicken, beef or vegetable broth (beef is traditional)
  • 2/3 cup grated Gruyere cheese
  • 4 slices of French banquette
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter and oil together in soup pot. Add onions and minced garlic and cook on medium-low until soft, about 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Once they are tender add thyme, Worcestershire, and broth and simmer for 25 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the slices of baguette on a greased baking tray and top with cheese. Once you are ready to serve, put the tray in a 400-degree oven and cook until cheese is melted. Pour soup into bowls and top with the bread and serve. All the recipes I know say to broil the bread in the oven with the soup, but I find this a lot easier. I’m all about easy.
