Onion Soup (Vegetarian Style)
8 glasses of water
1/2 lbs. of yellow onions
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
3 tablespoon of flour
Swiss cheese (as much as you like)
6 pieces of toasted French bread (baguette)
Salt and pepper
Peel the onions, and cut them in thin slices. Put the onion slices in a pot with the unsalted butter, and let them get transparent (somewhat brownish in color). Mix the flour into the pan with the onions, and slowly add the water. Let it boil, and then simmer for 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to your taste. Put the soup into a oven-proof tureen. Add the slices of bread, and top with swiss cheese. Put the tureen in the oven, broil until the cheese has melted.
Notes and/or Tips
This dish is quite heavy because of the cheese. For a light meal, you can have a salad with cheeses, and good French bread.
