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!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
