5 1/4 cups
vegetable broth, divided
dry white wine
ground black pepper
French bread, toasted
grated fat-free Parmesan cheese
Perfect! The broth of this soup is rich and tasty. I omitted the sugar, even though there's hardly any, but I don't like too-sweet French Onion Soups, and I used Vidalia onions, which are sweet on their own. I slathered some minced garlic on the toast, instead of just rubbing a clove, since we love garlic in this house. You may miss the gooey mouth-feel from the lack of gobs of cheese, but the flavor is still really good, and this is much healthier. Be careful not to add too much black pepper without taste-testing, as it is quite noticeable, but not excessive, as long as you like pepper. Great recipe!
It was okay.
OUTSTANDING Just as it is- thanks!
VERY tasty! I did use a dab of butter in with the 1/4 cup broth to cook the onions. I've made french onion before and I believe the buttery taste of the onions lend to the flavor of the soup. I know its only a tsp but it added a hint of a buttery flavor. Other then that I used it to the T and it was fantastic. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe!
Very good, flavorful recipe for french onion soup without beef broth.
Didn't need to change a thing... was so delicious!
Absolutely perfect. The only thing I changed was that I added mushrooms to enrich the broth.
I subbed this recipe with canned French Onion Soup to make Salisbury Steak (recipe also from this sight). This worked great and even the picky husband loved it! Thanks for sharing!
