French Onion Soup

Happy Thursday!!!!
I absolutely LOVE french onion soup!! It is full of so many delicious flavors, and super cheesy!! If you are a cheese lover like me, then you will love this soup! You only need a few ingredients and a little bit of time to make this classic soup!!
Let's get to cooking!!

French Onion Soup (serves 4) 

  • 3 yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon WEDO banana flour 
  • 2 cups white wine 
  • 4 cups chicken stock (beef stock works too)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 bay leaf 
  • 1 cup gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 8 slices of gluten-free bread (or any bread of choose)
  • chopped chives, for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat olive oil and butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once melted, add in onions and lower heat to medium. Saute for about 14 minutes, or until completely caramelized and softened. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in banana flour, then whisk in white wine and bring to a boil. After the wine has been boiling and reduced slightly, add in stock and bay leaf. Boil for about 10 minutes or so.

Pour about 1/3 cup of soup into 4 oven safe soup crocks. Top with 1 slice of bread, then top with more soup, almost filling to the top, then top with 1 more piece of bread, and then a handful of gruyere cheese. Repeat until all 4 crocks are filled. Bake for about 14 minutes, or until cheese is melted and slightly golden. Serve and enjoy!!
