French Onion Soup with Gruyere Croutons

It’s a classic isn’t it! Probably doesn’t need much of an introduction. You can of course use vegetable stock instead of beef if you don’t eat meat.

Ingredients:

5 white or brown onions (peeled and finely sliced)

50g butter

tblsp olive oil

1 tsp sugar

3 cloves garlic

2 tblsp plain flour

250ml white wine

1 litre beef or vegetable stock

a few baguette slices

Grated gruyere cheese

Method:

Melt the butter and oil in a large pan then add the onion and soften for 5-10 mins

Add the sugar and cook on low, stirring occasionally for 20 mins

Once it’s REALLY soft, add the garlic for a couple more minutes then stir in the flour

Gradually add the wine whilst stirring, then add the stock

Bring to a simmer for 20 minutes

Meanwhile pre-heat a grill and toast the baguette with the grated gruyere on top and serve on top of the soup.
