I was looking for a French onion soup that was caramelised and herby but nothing seemed to fit 100%!! This is my version of a classic - which makes a lovely starter to a dinner party or a fulfilling main for 2 with plenty of crusty bread.
I've also made this with red or brown onions - whatever is to hand fits fine! If you don't have any wine, you can add a few tablespoons of sherry - even brandy, or just add an extra 250ml of stock.
Absolutely lush! Proper fancied a nice french onion soup but I'd never made it before. I didn't use the cheese as I'm not a fan, but it was gorgeous anyway. I liked that the recipe's not pretentious, just a really tasty home cooked meal ^^ I cried a lot while prepping though :'P - 23 Oct 2012
Easy to make and really tasty. Some might find it a little sweet but I loved it. Will make again. - 26 Sep 2016
The first soup I ever made! A resounding success that will be repeated often. Thank you, thank you - 28 Apr 2014
