French Onion soup
Community Recipe from
- 1 tablespoon(s) butter
- 5 medium onions (a mix of yellow and red is ideal), sliced
- 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
- 2 bay leaves
- 6 cup(s) low-sodium beef broth
- 1/2 cup(s) dry red wine
- 4 or 5 sprigs fresh thyme (optional)
- Freshly cracked pepper
- 4 slice(s) baguette or sourdough bread
- 1/2 cup(s) shredded Swiss cheese
- *Heat the butter in a large pot over low heat. Add the onions and salt. Cover the pot and cook the onions and salt. Cover the pot and cook the onions over low heat until very soft and caramelized, about 30 minutes. (Most of this is unsupervised. Check on the onions every 10 minutes or so and stir.)
- *Add the bay leaves, broth, wine, and thyme (if using). Simmer on low heat for at least 15 minutes. Season with pepper. Discard the bay leaves.
- *Preheat the broiler. Divide the soup among 4 oven-proof bowls. Top each with a slice of baguette and some cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted and bubbling, about 3 minutes.
