DIRECTIONS

  • Peel and slice onions very thin and add sliced leek, finely chopped shallots and chopped scallions.
  • Melt butter on medium heat in a 4 quart pot.
  • Add all 4 types of onions and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until caramelized ~ about 25-40 minutes minutes.
  • Bring 8 cups water to boil.
  • Add Knorr bouillon OR organic beef broth [vegans could substitute MORGA vegetable broth] to dissolve.
  • Add beef broth all at once to onions.
  • Add wine and heat just to boiling.
  • Toast french bread.
  • Grate gruyere cheese (or use Sargento grated cheese ~ swiss or Monterey jack are best).
  • Pour very hot soup into bowls and sprinkle grated cheese on top.
  • If desired, put ovenproof crocks or stainless steel container under the broiler to melt the grated cheese --
  • Serve with piece of toasted bread.
  • This would be very good chilled in the summer, too.
