French Onion Soup

Oxmoor House
Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 25 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups)
Traditionally, cheese toast tops a classic bistro-style French onion soup. However, we decided to omit it from this rich soup and add a gourmet grilled sandwich on the side instead. It's the perfect accompaniment.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 sweet onions, cut in half vertically and thinly sliced (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
