Soupe à l’Oignon

It has been a very cold week. Therefore, a warm soupe à l’oignon has been an ideal meal. 

Soupe à l’Oignon

800 grams of onions

800 ml of vegetable stock

1 glass of white wine

50 grams of butter

50 grams of olive oil



Cheese. I had a mix of havarti, emmental and comte cheeses

Baguette bread in slices

For this soup, I use a kind of iron cast pot.

Wash and slice the onions. Melt the butter with olive oil, and add the onions, salt, and pepper. Cook the onion at low heat for 30 minutes. Add the wine, and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Add the vegetable stock, and let it simmer for 15-25 minutes. Correct it for salt.

To serve: Place a piece of sliced baguette in a clay pot. Add the soup, and on top add the grated cheese. Grill it for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown.....ENJOY!!

I have made Pastel Gratinado de Cebolla y Atun from Cocinera de Betulo in panini style....and we love it!....thanks Ana!



  1. I want both! The soup looks so nicely golden and cheesy...absolutely right up my alley.

  2. I have never seen a vegetarian onion soup - it looks rich and delicious. thanks
