Ww Onion Soup

"Maintain the rich flavor of this classic soup by stir-frying the onions in dry sherry and adding a dash of Worcestershire sauce * We updated the French Onion Soup by: o Stir-frying the onions in dry sherry instead of butter. o Removing the fat from the beef broth. o Switching to a strong-flavored Parmesan cheese and grating it so we could reduce the amount used but still cover the bowl."

    I'm the only one in the family that eats French onion soup. Usually I have to go out or wait for an event like PAC to justify making it. Tonight was such a treat! The first thing I thought when pouring in the sherry was that it already smelled like an authentic bowl of French onion soup. I used gluten-free French bread that I bake at work, and I put it all under the broiler for a few minutes to melt and brown the cheese. Delicious! Thanks so much for posting this super easy, healthy and satisfying recipe, Matt! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2011 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :D http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=363796&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

    Healthy yet tasty! We definitely didn't miss the huge amounts of salt that are so typical for onion soup. The sauteing technique w/o butter I prefer. The quality of your beef broth is a key component-the soup will only be as good as your broth. I chose to skip the toast on top b/c I had just made fresh dinner rolls. Made for Fall PAC 2011.

    While I love a good French Onion Soup this much healthier low fat version makes a great week night. Sauteing the onion in sherry really helps to maintain that classic flavor. I made as written, thanks for the post.
