French Onion Soup

15 Jan

I served this with spinach salad with quinoa and homemade Greek yogurt dressing, carrots, and tomatoes to get my veggies in!

1 onion, sliced in thick slices
16 oz. beef broth
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 stick of butter
 2 bay leaves
1 Tbsp dried thyme
 salt and pepper
french bread, sliced
slices of swiss cheese

 **I would recommend doubling this recipe if you’d like leftovers.  This was enough for Matt and I to eat 2 servings of, with no leftovers**

In a very large pot or pan, melt the butter.

Add in the onion slices, garlic, thyme, bay leaves and some salt and pepper.  Let cook down until the onions become soft and caramelized, about 15-20 minutes.

Preheat the oven broiler.

Once carmelized, sprinkle the onions with a little handful of flour and mix.  Let cook for a few minutes.

Transfer the onions and butter to a larger pot.  Add the broth.

Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, broil the bread slices with the cheese on top, until melted and bubbly.

Serve the soup topped with the cheesy bread slices.
