Traditional French Onion Soup

Share

This Luxurious French Onion Soup is a total knockout! I was lucky enough to try it for the first time in the city of love itself – Paris! I remember how rich and amazing the soup was, with heaps of caramelized onion in a deep, meaty broth, topped with crispy French baguette and bubbly golden cheese.

I was blown away! So I wanted to try it for myself and now I love making this for an extra special weekend treat or a dinner party starter. It’s sophisticated AND delicious, bon appetit!

So, how to cook Traditional French Onion Soup?

Steps to make Traditional French Onion Soup

1

Preheat the oven

1

Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

2

Cook the onions

6

In a large pan, melt the butter over a medium heat. Add the onions, season, and cook until translucent.

3

Caramelize the onions

25

Add the sugar, lower the heat a little and cook for around 25 minutes, stirring regularly, until the onions have turned golden brown and caramelized.

4

Add the remaining ingredients

35

Stir in the flour and cook the mixture for a further 3 minutes. Pour in the beef broth and wine, add the thyme, celery and bay leaves and put a lid partially over the pan. Leave to cook for half an hour.

5

Toast the bread

15

While the soup is cooking, prepare the bread. Lay the slices of bread on a baking sheet and brush both sides with the melted butter. Bake for 15 minutes, turning over halfway through. Remove from the oven, slice a clove of garlic in half and rub the cut side of the clove across each piece of bread.

6

Prepare the soup to broil

3

Switch the oven to broil (or grill). Take the bay leaves and celery out of the soup, then divide it between 4 bowls (make sure they are oven-proof). Lay a slice of toasted bread across the top of each bowl and sprinkle the cheeses over the top of the bread.

7

Broil the soup

6

Place the bowls under the broiler and leave until the cheese has turned a golden brown and is bubbling. Serve immediately!
