French Onion Soup

Looking for that perfect cold weather meal? This French Onion Soup will do the trick!  It's totally uncomplicated, delicious and well worth a try.


For the soup: - Unsalted butter - Onions - Garlic - Bay leaves - Thyme sprigs - Kosher salt - Black pepper - Red wine

In a large pot with a heavy bottom, I like to use a dutch oven, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the onions and garlic, stir to coat in the butter.



 Add the bay leaves, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low and cook for two hours, so the onions caramelize.


Add the wine and stir to combine, cook an additional 20-30 minutes stirring occasionally until the liquid is reduced by 3/4.


Sprinkle the mixture with the flour and stir to combine. Let cook, stirring occasionally for 5 additional minutes so the raw flour taste cooks out of the mixture.
