Traditional Onion Soup

Onion Treats

His Majesty Peasant Onion Soup. Why His Majesty, so legend has it that onion soup was first prepared by King Louis XV of France. Why Peasant, so the Onion is the symbol of peasantry. Various combinations of ingredients make this soup extraordinarily delicious, and it is served in the best restaurants in Paris and Montreal.

You need to take the ingredients:
Good onions, 1 kg.
Butter, 60 gr.
Broth, 1 liter
Thyme, 6 sprigs
Baguette
Hard cheese, 200g

Cooking process is simple enough:

We cut the onions into quarters and then thin strips. It will take about 1 kg of onions for everything, try to take delicious, white onions. In a frying pan over medium heat, melt butter (60 g).

We put onions in the pan. You can add a couple more stalks of celery, but it is not necessary.
Next, fry the onions, stirring occasionally, until they begin to caramelize, taking on a golden skin. The process is not quick, it will take 20 to 35 minutes, but it’s worth it. This is the most important stage, which will make a delicious soup.
Then we pour 250 ml of broth. It is better to take beef broth, but if not, take vegetable broth, chicken broth or just boiling water.

The broth will gradually evaporate. In the meantime, chop some thyme leaves, about 5-7 sprigs. It’s good here because it helps the sweet onions make up the unique flavor. You can also add dried thyme.
Then pour the next 250 ml of broth.

When the second portion of broth evaporates a decent amount, too, pour in the rest of the broth (400 ml), bring to a boil and cook for as long as it takes to make the soup medium thick. That is, the spatula will not leave a trace, but the soup will not be liquid.

While the soup cooks, make croutons. The best solution is, of course, the baguette. We cut them in thin slices diagonally and fry them in a toaster.
On top you grate coarse cheese, like parmesan. So that it covers the whole surface of the soup. Put croutons on top.
The soup is ready. Bon appetit!
