Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
1 pound yellow onions

3 tablespoons olive oil

4 garlic cloves

1 teaspoon white sugar

2 teaspoons thyme

2 tablespoons white flour

1/2 cup dry white wine

8 cups vegetable broth

French bread slices

10 ounces Gruyere or Swiss cheese

Preparation

  • Thinly slice the onions. Heat the oil in a large, heavy bottom pan over medium-low heat, add the onions, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until they are just beginning to brown.
  • Stir in the chopped garlic, sugar and chopped thyme, then reduce the heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes, or until the onions are golden brown.
  • Sprinkle in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the wine. Gradually stir in the stock and bring to a boil, skimming off any froth that rises to the surface, then reduce the heat and let simmer for 45 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the broiler on high. Toast the bread on both sides under the broiler, then rub the toast with the whole garlic clove.
  • Ladle the soup into ovenproof bowls set on a baking sheet. Place a slice or two of french bread in each bowl and divide the grated cheese between them.
  • Place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Garnish with thyme, serve immediately and enjoy!
