Onion Soup

I’ve been craving for onion soup since months ago!!! And for any different reasons, I wasn’t able to make it before. So I made it, and believe me, it was delicious! I remember some years ago, my sister and I made one in our grandparents’ house, and we enjoyed it so much. Anyways, I checked many recipes and in the end, I decided to make my own recipe.

So, I used:

  • 1/2 stick butter 
  • 6 small onions, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup of red wine
  • 1 L beef broth
  • 4 bread slices
  • cheese mixes (Gruyere)
  • salt and pepper

In a large pot, melt the butter. 

Slice the onions.

Add chopped garlic, salt and pepper.

Cook until the onions are soft and caramelized, around half an hour. 

Add wine…

…and simmer until the wine reduces. 

Add the beef broth, simmer again and cook for 15 minutes. 

Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Place soup in ramekins and place them in a baking sheet.

With a drinking glass, cut circular (or any shape) pieces of toasted bread and top the ramekins with them.

Sprinkle slices with cheese. 

Broil until cheese melts and gets golden brown, around 5 minutes.
And enjoy!!!
