Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Amazingly delicious! I added a cup and a half of light beer to the whole recipe, and I know it changes the calorie count, but not by a whole lot!
I have stayed away form French Onion soup because of the high calories. Thanks for sharing this one that it lighter..
Very simple and delicious! Love caramelized onions. I omitted red wine bc i dislike flavor. Used 3 sweet yellow onions & 1 white onion. Too sweet but my error. Prefer a lot of broth so will add more next time.Will make again. Not a 5 star bc it didn't blow me away. Fish perhaps as a side of protein
very tasty. I used 1 tbsp marge. But it left me feeling hungry!! So supper turned out to be a high calorie event!
This recipe is great but I use my own beef stock in place of the beef bouillon. Just simmer beef bones (raw and cooked)with water, onions, carrots, celery and thyme for a couple days. Strain through cheese cloth, remove fat and you have low fat, low sodium beef stock. Freeze what you don't use.
Haven't made this yet, but beef bouillon cubes are high in sodium. I'd substitute that with low sodium beef broth. Other than that, sounds yummy and I will try it soon.
Is the sodium listed for the whole batch?
