French onion soup – Thermomix

I think French onion soup is a particularly tasty dish, especially with the traditional accompaniment of cheesy french bread, but I always think of it as a little difficult to eat elegantly. Like spaghetti I class it as ' not a first date' dish! (Not that I am in that category). This recipe gets round that as the onions are not left in rings. I have adapted from My way of Cooking TM book, substituting beef stock as I think that's what gives this soup its punch. That recipe also has no garlic- sacre blue! French onion soup with no garlic!!

You'll need

  • 80g Gruyere or Parmesan or a mix, grate 6 seconds sp7 Tip out and set aside as you will grill this on top of your bread.
  • 20g butter
  • 500g onions, cut in half
  • 20g flour
  • 200ml white wine
  • 800ml beef stock
  • Seasoning and chives
  • Slices of baguette, covered in cheese one side and grilled

Melt the butter in TM bowl at 90° Sp1. Add the onions and chop for 6 seconds sp4, then sauté for 5 minutes 100° sp 3.

Add flour and mix 10 seconds, speed 3, reverse action ( to preserve the onion slices)

Add white wine, stock and cook for 20 minutes, 100°, sp 1, reverse action.

Season and grill the sliced cheese topped (Thermomix) bread .

Sprinkle with chives. I only had fresh coriander to hand so that's what is in this version. Flat leaf parsley would work well too.

Have a great day!


i'd love to hear from you...
