BD Friendly French Onion Soup

  • 2 tbs. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 3 lrg. onion, sweet, organic
  • 4 c. beef stock, from grass-fed or pastured, organic
  • 6 tbs. sherry, cooking
  • 1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
  • 4 oz. cheese, Swiss, raw, grass-fed or pastured, organic
  • black pepper, ground, organic to taste

In a large saucepan, melt butter. Thinly slice the onions, and add to the saucepan. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. When onions are tender, add beef broth, sherry, Worcestershire, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, and cover for about 10-15 minutes. Pour into bowls and top with shredded raw Swiss cheese. It will melt on the hot broth.

Optional: You can toast sprouted grain bread for a more traditional French Onion Soup. Place toasted bread on top of soup, then add cheese. Optional: If you have oven ready soup crocks, place bread, then cheese and broil till cheese is bubbly and golden brown.

I make this without any bread. It is quick and easy to serve from pot to bowl with grated raw Swiss cheese on top.

This recipe will not be gluten free if bread is used and the carb count will increase
