    Keee's Note:

    I thought this soup was really good but not as good as panera's, which topsecreet recipes claim it is. Then again, I subsituted a mixture of light butter and no-fat butter spray for the sweet cream butter so that probably made a lot of difference. Either way, using my low-cal butter mixture and no cheese or croutons, I made this soup for about 40 calories per cup and it's a great filling soup for a diet. PS - If you have a food processor, save yourself tons of time by processing the onions!

    1. 1
      Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. When the butter is melted, add sliced onions and saute over high heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, until onions turn brown.
    2. 2
      Add remaining ingredients (except bread and asiago) to the pot and stir to combine. (NOTE: to help the flour blend in, I recommend whisking it into the broth or water before adding) Heat soup until it's boiling, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      Make croutons for the top of the soup by slicing foccacia bread (or other bread) into slices. Butter both sides of the slices, then cut into bite-size cubes. Bake the bread in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes or until crispy. (I cut bread into bite-size pieces first, then spray with spray butter).
    4. 4
      Serve the soup with a handful of croutons and a couple tablespoons of shaved asiago on top.

      Having never had Panera's onion soup, I had nothing to compare it to. I thought it was very good. I cut it in 1/2 for two servings. I cut out the tabasco sauce since we didn't have any and i wasn't about to buy it just for a few drops. Made for Fall PAC 2009.
