Ingredients

Servings:
4
2 tblsp
grass fed butter
2 tblsp
olive oil
4-5
medium yellow onions, sliced very thin lengthwise
1
garlic clove, finely minced
1 cup(s)
dry white wine
6 cup(s)
beef stock
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup(s)
sherry or Madeira
6
slices of gluten free baguette, toasted
1/4 cup(s)
grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup(s)
shredded Gruyere

Directions 9 steps | 87 Minutes

Step 1

In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat butter and olive oil. Add the sliced onions and a little of the vegetable broth. Simmer for 1-2 minutes.

Step 2

Season with salt, to taste. Stir and cover the pot with the lid. Cook, stirring occasionally, over low heat until the onions begin to soften and sweat. Add a small amount of broth as needed to keep the onions from sticking and to lift off the frond from the pan.

Step 3

Uncover and increase the heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are a deep golden brown, about 30-40 minutes. Continue to add a small amount of broth as needed to keep the onions from sticking and to lift off the frond from the pan. Do not let the onions burn.

Step 4

Add the garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.

Step 5

Stir in the dry white wine and the remaining vegetable broth. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 30 minutes. 

Step 6

Add sherry or Madeira, taste and adjust seasoning to preference.

Step 7

Preheat the broiler. Ladle soup into oven-proof bowls.

Step 8

Place a piece of toasted bread on top of each bowl and sprinkle each bowl generously with Parmesan and Gruyere cheese.

Step 9

Place the bowls on a baking sheet and place the sheet under the preheated broiler until the cheese is golden and bubbly. Serve soup immediately while it is piping hot. Enjoy!
