Recipe Details:
This is a recipe for a low carb version of a classic and widely beloved French onion soup. We are certain you will enjoy the complex flavor of this delicious dish and will also impress your family and guess if you decide to treat them to this diabetes-friendly delicacy of French cuisine.


Ingredients:
  • Large onions (finely sliced) – 2
  • Garlic (minced) – 3 cloves
  • Beef broth – 32 Oz can
  • Dry red wine – 0.25 cup
  • Brandy – 1 tbsp.
  • Olive oil – 2 tbsp.
  • Unsalted butter – 2 tbsp.
  • Salt and black pepper – to taste
  • Fresh thyme – 1 bunch
  • Swiss cheese (shredded) – to taste (enough to cover the bread)
    Recipe Directions:
    Step 1
    Melt the butter with olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Once the butter melts, add the sliced onions and a bit of salt.
    Step 2
    Cook the onion on medium heat until it softens. Once the onion gets soft, reduce heat to medium low and keep cooking for about half an hour. Stir the onion often through the entire cooking time to make sure it cooks evenly and doesn’t burn.
    Step 3
    As soon as the onion browns slightly, add the garlic and cook for about 2-3 minutes.
    Step 4
    Pour in the brandy and red wine. Simmer on low heat until the wine gets reduced to about half.
    Step 5
    Pour in the beef broth and add salt and pepper. Bring the contents to a boil, cover and then simmer for about an hour.
    Step 6
    Pour the soup into oven-friendly soup bowls or French onion soup bowls. Put a slice of bread on top of each bowl and cover the bread with the shredded Swiss cheese.
    Step 7
    Preheat oven on broil. Place the soup bowls on a baking dish and broil in the oven until the cheese melts.
    Step 8
    Remove the soup from the oven. Garnish each bowl with a sprig of thyme. Serve and enjoy!
