Continental Onion Soup
This delightful soup doesn't have to be off limits. Adjust the ingredients a bit
and you get all the flavor for a much lower calorie count than the original
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
6 medium onion(s), thinly sliced
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp dry sherry
6 cup(s) fat-free beef broth
1/8 tsp table salt, to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, to taste
6 slice(s) French bread, cut 1/2 inch thick and toasted
1/3 oz gruyere cheese, finely grated
In a large nonstick pot, heat oil and very slowly sauté onions over medium-high
heat until they are golden, about 40 minutes. Stir occasionally to make sure
onions don't stick to pan.
Add flour and mix to combine. Slowly pour in sherry and broth, stirring
constantly. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Season to taste.
