French Onion Soup

Note: This recipe is two people


  • 2 large onions
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1/2 cup of wine (optional)
  • 2 cups of meat broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 slices of French bread
  • 1 teaspoon flour
  • Swiss Gruyere cheese
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper


Slice onions thin. 

Take a medium pot and melt butter in it, then add sliced onions. Cook them on medium heat until they got caramelized about 30-40 minutes. If you want to speed up the process add one teaspoon sugar into it.

Then add minced garlic and cook couple of minutes more and add thyme, pepper and bay leaf. Then add wine and cook 5-10 minutes until wine evaporates. After that add flour and cook couple of minutes more. Lastly add beef broth and salt and cook 30 minutes more on low heat. See the picture.

Roast sliced breads in a toaster or in the oven. Take soup in a small bowl, put roasted bread on it and sprinkle grated Swiss cheese and Parmesan and broil in a 350 F preheated oven about 10 minutes. Enjoy!
