This is a great alternative to the classic French onion soup. Caramelised onions are simmered with white wine, soy sauce and then blended with Gruyere cheese. It's perfect with fresh crusty bread.
I served this for a Christmas party for 23 people. Everyone loved it! The only thing I did differently was let it simmer on low on the stove all day, and instead of the shredded swiss, I just used 2 thin slices of it that I threw in before it was served. Thanks so much! - 18 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I really don't understand how anyone could think this was bland!! The only thing I changed was using 4 cups vegetable broth and 4 cups water. It was soooo goood! Finally a vegetarian onion soup from scratch that is perfected! - 25 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Didn't like this recipe at all. Too much thyme and too much wine. Maybe it was because I made it in a larger batch size, but this soup just did not taste good at all. - 07 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
