French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup
Ingredients
  • 4-5 onions
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • garlic
  • salt
  • chicken broth
  • bay leaf
  • thyme
  • worcestershire
  • lemon juice
  • white wine (or sherry)
Instructions
  1. Start by browning the onions (4 or 5 pretty big onions), in lots of butter and olive oil, with some garlic and good quality salt. The goal is to carmelize the onions as much as possible, because that’s where most of the soup’s flavour comes from. Add chicken broth, a bay leaf and a small pinch of thyme. Let simmer. Just before serving, season with worcestershire (about 1 tbsp), a dash of lemon juice, and some sherry (or white wine).
