I LOVE French Onion soup, it is a winter staple for me. It can get pretty unhealthy pretty quickly though, so I made a few recipe changes to healthify it so I can eat it more often. Don't be afraid of the cabbage in this recipe, it takes on the flavor of the onions and adds more sustenance since there is no french bread or tons of cheese in this healthy version.
Healthy French Onion Soup
-3 large onions (I use yellow onions)
-1-2 cartons mushrooms
-1 stick butter
-salt to taste
-2 teaspoons thyme (or to taste)
-half of a cabbage
-about 48 ounces beef broth (6 cups)
-swiss cheese (sandwich slices work well)
Chop the onions and mushrooms. Throw them into a pot with the sick of butter and cook until the onions are soft. Add salt and thyme to taste. Chop the half cabbage and add it along with the beef broth to the onions. Let everything simmer together for about 15-20 minutes. Once the soup is in a bowl top it off with a slice of swiss cheese and either melt it in the microwave or under the broiler. That's it!
