Delicious French Onion Soup in Thirty-Minutes

This simple soup is surprisingly filling and a wonderful dish to enjoy on a cold, rainy night. Why not make your own loaf of easy, delicious Artisan bread to go with it?

  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 T butter
  • 6 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ½ cup white cooking wine
  • 6 cups beef stock (made from bouillon is fine)
  • 4 thick slices thick, crusty bread
  • Several slices sharp Cheddar or fresh Mozzarella cheese

Saute onions, herbs and spices over medium heat for 15-18 minutes. Add wine and simmer for 1 minute. Add beef stock and bring back to a boil. Toast the bread. Pour soup into bowls and put toasted bread on top. Arrange several slices of cheese over bread and, if desired, put bowls in hot oven till cheese has melted. Serve immediately with remainder of bread.

Serves 4. (This meal costs about £0.15/person.)
