    Prep Time

  • 4 People


  • 4 large onions, chopped
  • 2 tsps olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 litre beef stock made from 2
  • 1/2 Knorr Beef Stock Cube
  • 4 slices of baguette or any other crusty bread
  • 40 g grated Gruyere, swiss or cheddar cheese pepper to taste

  1. Heat the oil and butter in a deep saucepan and saute the onions for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. Reduce the heat and cook onions for 20-30 minutes or until they turn golden brown; stir frequently to avoid burning.

  3. Move the onions to the soup pot, add the stock, season with pepper and simmer, partially covered, for another 20 minutes.

  4. Toast the bread in the oven or a toaster. Spoon the soup into ovenproof serving dishes, top with bread and sprinkle with cheese.
