French Onion Soup

March 23, 2011

I enjoy soup on rainy cold days. Especially with toasted bread and cheese. This is a super easy soup to warm you up.

French Onion Soup

3 small/medium onions

1 bullion cube

1 1/2 tbsp olive oil

Dash of salt and pepper


  • Clean the onions.


  • Using a knife or a mandolin cut the onion into thin slices. I like to scut the onion in half  then slice using the mandolin.

  • Once all the onions are thinly sliced, heat the oil in the pan on medium heat. Add onions and spread to cover the bottom.

  • Cook on medium heat until onions are golden brown, keep stirring, it will take about 20-30 minutes. You don’t need to stand over it, just check every few minutes.

Half way through cooking, make sure all onions are browned.

  • While onions cook, boil about 3-4 cups water and add 1 bullion cube. When onions are golden brown, you can add the boiled water and bring back to boiling.

  • Simmer on medium low for about 20 minutes to soften onions and get all the flavor out. Add more water if it cooks off and add a little bit of salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy plain or add some croutons/bread, top with cheese, and broil until cheese melts. Delicious!
