French Onion Soup with Gratinated Cheese Bread

It has always been said that bread is not thrown away. Traditionally, bread that has become hard has been used in soup, for example. It was seasoned with whatever was available in the pantry – in France onions and cheese, among other things. The result is this spicy onion soup with golden-brown cheese toast from the oven.


    • 800 g onions
    • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
    • 4 cl Pernod
    • 1,2 l meat or vegetable broth
    • Salt
    • Pepper
    • 8 white bread slices (maybe older)
    • 80 g grated Gruyère or Raclette cheese
    • optional: a shot of champagne, other sparkling wine or white wine

  • Best French Onion Soup Vegetarian

    In France, onion soup is simply a starter. The original homemade onion soup is prepared with sherry and white wine. But don’t worry; you won’t get drunk from the vegetarian onion soup, because the alcohol content is reduced to a minimum by cooking.


    • 1200g onions
    • 1-liter vegetable stock
    • Olive oil
    • 1 shot of sherry
    • 1/4 liter white wine
      Merric salt
    • freshly ground pepper
    • Baguette
    • grated gouda

    Peel the onions and cut them into small pieces. Heat a pot with olive oil and fry the onions for about 3 minutes until golden brown. Add the vegetable stock and white wine and bring to the boil once. Cover and cook on low heat for 15 minutes.
