French Onion Soup

I have been craving this stuff! It is so easy to make I wish I had discovered this awesome soup earlier in life! Plus this is phase One compliant for SBDieter’s. Enjoy!

French Onion Soup
Found on MizFrog’s Pad

2 onions, very finely sliced (can use sweet onions)

1/4 cup Brummel & Brown spread (or other SBD-appropriate margarine)

4 cans beef broth

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt (check saltiness of broth first and add salt to taste)

2 cups shredded part skim mozzarella cheese

Heat stock pot over med heat; melt margarine spread, and sauté onions until soft, about 15 minutes. Add 1/2 can of beef broth and continue to cook until the onions have absorbed the broth. The onions should now look almost clear and brownish in color.

Stir in the remaining broth and all seasonings. Simmer for 20 minutes. Ladle soup in oven-proof soup bowls and sprinkle on shredded cheese. Place oven-proof soup bowls under the broiler and broil until cheese is totally melted but not browned.*

*Note: Can just stir in the shredded cheese, if desired, instead of broiling.
