Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Onions are slowly cooked, then combined with beef broth and white wine in this simple onion soup.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • In a large saucepan over low heat, melt butter with olive oil. Cook onions in mixture, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes, until very soft, translucent and brown on the edges.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the onions and stir to combine. Pour in beef broth, wine and water with bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven broiler.
  • Toast the bread slices. Ladle the soup into 6 ovenproof bowls and place the bowls on a baking sheet. Place a toasted slice of bread over each bowl and top with Swiss cheese.
  • Place bowls under broiler until cheese is melted.
