Things my husband coooks for me // Onion soup!

septembre 24, 2013

Hi there!

I try to find solace in the fact that summer is over, but fall actually isn’t that bad. Candles, chai lattes, sweaters, and bright yellow leaves are all very enjoyable. I think all food lovers will agree that the best part about cooler weather is obviously the fact that it’s soup season.

My hubby makes a really good French onion soup. Since the weather has been a little more October-like than mid-September-y, soup was exactly what we needed for dinner. I still refuse to put away my sandals until the weather drops below the freezing point, but that doesn’t mean I won’t enjoy a delicious bowl of onion soup.

This is another dish he’s been making for a while. I remember when we were dating, it used to seem like it was a soup that took forever to prepare. It’s probably because I was waiting around for it to be ready. Now that he makes it in our home, we’re busy finishing off some chores while it simmers in the background. I truly enjoy sitting down to this dish; it never lets me down!

Recipe (yields approx. 3 soups)

Chop up 2 medium sized onions and cook on low with approximately 2 tablespoons of butter. When onions are golden, add in 1 tablespoon of flour and increase heat to medium. Add in 4 cups of beef broth, as well as a few sprinkles of rosemary and garlic salt. Let it cook for 35 minutes before adding one cup of red wine. Let it cook for another 10 minutes.

Poor in the mixture into three ovenproof bowls. In each bowl, add once slice of crusted bread, and sprinkle some grated cheese on top (my hubby uses mozzarella, but cheddar could do just fine.) Put the bowls into the oven for 5-10 minutes at 350 degrees, then broil for 2 minutes for that yummy gratiné effect. Voilà, the perfect fall dinner.

Bon appétit!
