Onion Soup

Onion soup – a rich, golden broth of beef and sweet, caramelized onions. I love French onion soup, but I dislike the thick slab of melted cheese that often lays on top of it, so I make mine without it.

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 medium onions (6 oz each), sliced into thin rounds
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 quart organic beef broth (not low-sodium)
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, about 4 minutes. Add the onions and patiently cook, stirring often, until caramelized, 15-20 minutes.
  2. Add the flour and mix with a wooden spoon about 1 minute, until it starts to brown.
  3. Add the wine. Mix well. Cook about 2 minutes, until most of the wine evaporates.
  4. Add the broth and the black pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring often, 20-30 minutes, until soup is noticeably thicker. Serve immediately.
