IntroductionEASY! Soothing and a great lunch or dinner on a cold day. EASY! Soothing and a great lunch or dinner on a cold day.
Onions- 4 large- any type, (yellow, red, sweet or white), sliced thinly
Garlic 3 cloves
Fat Free Chicken Broth 6 cups
Low Fat Swiss or Gruyere Cheese 8 thin slices
Mushrooms 2 cups thinly sliced
Butter 2 tbsp
Olive Oil 2 tbsp
Warm Butter and oil in a large sautee pan at very low heat. (About 20- 25% of the available power of the burner)
Add onions and garlic.
Slowly cook until the onions begin to caramelize, stirring often. (This will take 15-20 minutes, but is time well spent)
While onions are cooking, slice the mushrooms in 1/8 inch slices. Seperate in to 4 equal portions.
When onions/garlic are caramelized, add the chicken stock, and turn up the heat!
Season soup with salt and pepper as required, and simmer 5 minutes until piping hot.
Prepare 4 oven proof bowls and turn the oven on to broil.
Ladle the hot soup in to the 4 bowls. Top with the mushrooms, then the cheese, and place in the oven.
Bake until the cheese is brown and bubbly.
GREAT with a tossed salad!
