French Onion Soup

Love French Onion Soup but don’t love the feeling you have after eating it? I found a french onion soup on a fitness website that I thought sounded good and pretty close to the original. I am making this soup for my family and my aunt who came to town! We have all been craving french onion soup but not one full of calories. Plus you don’t want to have a huge dinner when you’re about to go to the corn maze! We are excited to go get ourselves trapped in the corn maze, drink apple cider, and visit the little goats and chickens. Gotta love the fall!

10 medium onions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
4-8 slices (about 3/4-inch thick) whole-wheat baguette
1/4 cup port wine or sherry
5 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 ounces Gruyere cheese (for a frugal budget, you can use swiss, or a combo of parm and cheddar)

    • It’s not hard at all. You can just saute the onions in some butter until they are translucent. Then you add beef stock. To make it even better, cut up some french bread and put some swiss cheese on it and bake it until golden brown. Put this in the soup, it’s so good!
