Quick French Onion Soup

Grocery List

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 medium onion, halved, cores removed & sliced thinly lengthwise
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 carton Campbell’s® 30% Less Sodium Beef Broth With Red Wine OR your favourite beef stock or vegetable stock (if you want to keep it vegetarian)
  • 1/2 baguette
  • 1/2 cup Swiss cheese or Mozzarella cheese, grated

How to make it

  1. In a large pot, heat butter over medium-high. Add onions; cook for 5-8 minutes, stirring often, or until golden brown. Add chopped garlic; cook 1-2 minutes longer.
  2. Add broth and bring to simmer. Reduce heat, cover and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes or until onions are tender.
  3. While soup is simmering, prepare baguette. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C) Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  4. Slice baguette into eight 2 cm thick rounds; transfer to prepared baking tray. Top each round with roughly 1 tbsp (15 mL) grated cheese. Set aside.
  5. When soup is ready to serve, bake baguette rounds for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  6. Portion soup into 4 serving bowls. Carefully float 2 baguette rounds in each bowl. Rest 5 minutes before serving for baguette to soften slightly.
