Cozy Onion Soup

“Today’s selection for a light and tasty lunch was an onion soup. I noticed I had some snacks (crackers) leftovers. The humidity did not make a good job with them as they were too soft to be attractive. I placed them in the oven to low heat until they returned crunchy and in the meantime I prepared the soup.”

What you need

  • 1 tablespoon margarine or 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 3 cups broth (vegetal, chicken or beef)
  • 1 cup white wine (to taste)
  • pepper
  • 1 cup crackers or 1 cup old bread, toasted
  • 4 -6 tablespoons gruyere Swiss cheese, grated or 4 -6 tablespoons other cheese


  1. Melt margarine in the pot.
  2. Add onion and roast at medium temperature until they begins to brown.
  3. Add flour, stir well and cook for other 5 minutes stirring from time to time.
  4. At once add the broth and stir well.
  5. Add wine and cook until the desired consistency is reached. I cooked it for about 10 minutes. In the meantime heat the broiler.
  6. Season with pepper.
  7. Divide soup into fireproof bowls, spread ¾ of the crackers on soup and top with cheese.
  8. Place under the broiler until cheese is well melted and begins to change color.
  9. Serve immediately topped with remaining crackers.
