Very good! A bit on the thin side for me (made a vegetarian soup for friends - I would've preferred beef broth myself) but tasted nice.

  1. In a large casserole, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally until soft, 5-7 minutes.

  7. Make the toasts: Preheat oven to 425*.
