Onion Soup

A little late, but here's the second post for this week. This onion soup is a very simple dish and doesn't look very spectacular, but it's quick and easy and it goes very well with the bread. You can leave out the white wine if you don't like it, it's totally optional. 

Ingredients (serves 3): 
4 medium-sized onions
500ml of vegetable broth
about 40g of butter
50ml of white wine
2 teaspoons of sugar
1 1/2 table spoon of all-purpose flour
salt, pepper, nutmeg
fresh parsley

Cut the onions into rings or half rings. Melt the butter in a cooking pot and sautée the onions until they are soft and slightly browned. When the onions are done, add in the sugar and dust them with the flour. Add in the vegetable broth and bring it to a boil (don't forget to stir!). Make sure that the flour is completely dissolved and as soon as it starts to boil, add in the wine and let it cook for 3-5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg and add in the parsley. 

I like to serve the soup with baked bread with cheese on top.

You just need 3 slices of any bread you like. Place them in a buttered oven tray and add any cheese you like on top of the bread (I used goat's camenbert). Bake until the bread is crispy and the cheese is melted or slightly golden, depending on how you like it. I added a little bit of parsley and pepper for serving. 


  1. WE prefer using beef stock to make it. It is delicious with fresh baked French bread.

    1. I thinkI've also seen some recipes with chicken broth :) I think you can use all of them interchangeably.


I'd love to hear from you!
