I ain’t no Julia Child so I was thinking something simple. Due to Sydney’s current cold snap, I wanted to make a dish that would work well on a wintery night. The grocery delivery included onions, stock and a slab of butter so I decided to try a simple French onion soup.
It’s super easy to make in the CC as the machine does everything from chop the onions to cook the soup.
The cheesy toast really makes this, as it transforms it from a simple to soup to a more substantial meal. Winter warming meal complete!
- 500g white onions, peeled and quartered
- 30g butter, diced
- 1 Tbs olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1 Tbs plain flour
- 500g vegetable stock
- 1 cup water
- 1 baguette
- Olive oil spray
- ½ cup mozzarella, grated
- ½ cup tasty cheese, grated
- Insert the ultrablade to the bowl and add the onion. Set at speed 11 for 20 seconds to dice the onions.
- Remove the ultrablade and replace with the mixer blade. To cook the onions, add the olive oil, butter and salt and set the slow cook P2 program at 95°C for 45 minutes.
- Add the sugar and set at 95°C for 5 minutes to caramelise the onions.
- Add the flour, stock and water and set the slow cook P3 program at 95°C for 20 minutes, without the stopper.
- Spoon into bowls and season with pepper. Top with a slice of cheesy toast.
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Cut six 2cm thick slices of baguette and spray both sides with olive oil.
- Bake for 5 minutes until bread is firm.
- Turn slices over and cover with even amounts of mozzarella and tasty cheese.
- Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
