Fat Free Awesome French Onion Soup

Submitted by: PLAINANDFANCY1
Fat Free Awesome French Onion Soup

Introduction

I have been makinig French Onion Soup for years, but because I have recently started cooking for family members with restrictive diets I have gone a step further, and have come up with what I believe is a pretty good fat free version ;) I am new to posting recipes (as of 3 hours ago, lol), and could not get it exact on Sparks calculations, but I can assure you, this is fat free. This soup is chock full of onions, as I think onion soup should be, so you don't miss all the "fattening stuff"!
I hope you use this recipe, as I always do, as a guide...and make whatever changes or improvements work for you!
Blessings, and I hope you enjoy my Fat Free French Onion Soup Recipe!

Ingredients

    6 c. mixed chopped onions
    4 c. Progresso 100% Natural Beef Broth
    5 sprays fat free butter spray
    1/4 c. dehydrated onion
    1/4 c. white wine (may omit or substitute broth)
    6 cloves sliced garlic
    1 sprig fresh thyme
    1/2 t fresh ground white pepper
    1 T. fresh parsley, finely chopped
    1 T. fresh chives (dried will work, just use less)
    1 1/2 c. Kraft Fat Free Mozzerella Cheese

    2 Knoor onion boullion cubes (optional)

Directions

"Saute" or sweat your onions in 1/4 c. of the beef broth, just until they begin to turn translucent.
You can GO CRAZY with your onions--go through the fridge, the market, get whatever kind of onions you can lay your hands on, the more variety, the better the soup!
Add 5 sprays of non fat butter spray, for just for a little extra flavor.
Add the remaining broth, the dehydrated onion (if you don't have it don't sweat it, it will still be good), the white wine and the sliced garlic cloves (you can use the peeled ready to go ones from the Club Store as I do). Add the thyme (I always have it growing on my windowsill, but you can use dry, just don't overdo it). the pepper, and PUT A LID ON IT--we don't want the liquid to evaporate and just want the flavors to marry ;) Simmer for approximately 15 minutes, or until all onions appear clear. Turn the heat off, add the parsley and chives, put the lid back on and let it get happy for 5 minutes.
(Now this is where I just had to do something--I've given up fat...... I've given up cholesterol...I just can't give up everything!...though it is really good without, I just happened to have some Knoor Onion Boullion cubes, and I added 2 here. I could not find them on the calorie calculator, but they only add 10 calories each, and some sodium, but no fat. They are optional. I promise, it will still be good if you don't have/add them).
In the meantime, you can prepare your bowls. You have 2 options-cheese on the top or on the bottom. Because we are making a fat free soup, we have eliminated the bread (honestly I don't miss it)...so you may put 1/4 c of cheese in the bottom of the bowl, or you can put it on top of the soup and place under the broiler--though I must warn you it will not turn out as beautifully as traditional French Onion Soup (the FATTENING kind!).
Now serve! I hope you like it as much as my family does and I thank you for looking at my recipe.
