Gluten-Free French Onion Soup
Looking for a healthy meal that will warm those winter taste buds this February? How about French Onion Soup –immune stimulating and antibacterial for winter!
Here’s the recipe: (You’ll love it!)
What You Need:
- 800g brown onions, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons unsalted organic butter
- 1/2 teaspoon raw sugar
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 3 tablespoons gluten-free plain flour
- 2 litres of beef stock
- 125ml red wine
- 1 bay leaf
- 1/4 teaspoon of dried thyme
- Salt and pepper
How to Cook:
Place a large saucepan over a medium-low heat and add olive oil and butter to the bottom. Once melted, add your sliced onions and stir until they are evenly coated with the oil and butter. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes until they are very tender and clear.
Next, take off the cover, add the salt and sugar, then mix. Raise the heat to a medium and continue cooking the onions. Make sure you stir frequently to allow them to caramelise until they turn to a deep golden brown. (This will take approximately 30 to 40 minutes).
Once your onions are caramelised, turn down the heat to medium-low and sprinkle flour over the onions. Next, brown the flour for about 2-3 minutes and stir constantly. Add the wine, the bay leaf, the thyme and the stock (add the stock a bit at a time).
Next, add salt and pepper to taste and continue to add the rest of your stock (stirring as you do so). Simmer for 30 minutes then remove the bay leaf.
By the way, if you’re a vegetarian, mushroom stock is a great substitution.
