French Onion Soup
A friend made mention not long ago that onion soup is great for colds. I knew eating onions and garlic was good for them but never put two and two together. I LOVE French Onion soup but had never found that one recipe....TILL NOW.
Here is my yummy adapted French Onion Soup recipe. The recipes I saw online mostly had sugar or wine in them. Since I don't want to use sugar and I don't have wine in the house, here's what I came up with. I think it turned out very nice.
4 cups thinly sliced vidalia onions
1/4 cup butter
4 cups beef broth
pepper to taste
1. Melt butter in pan and add onions. Cook slowly over a medium/low heat for 20-30 minutes till almost carmalized.
2. Add in pepper and beef broth and bring to a boil.
3. Reduce heat to simmer and simmer for 20 minutes.
4. If desired, slice french bread and put on baking pan. Top with shredded cheese and broil till cheese is a bit bubbly. Add on the top of soup when serving.
