French Onion Soup

The onions are cooked in wine instead of butter to cut the calories. Serve with a salad with a no-fat dressing to complete the meal.



  1. Place the onions and wine in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Reduce the heat, partially cover the pan and cook for 15 minutes, or until the onions are soft.
  3. Add the broth and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes to blend the flavors.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
  5. Place the bread on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes, or until just lightly browned. Place the cheese on top of the bread and bake for 1 minute, or until cheese melts.
  6. Ladle the soup into bowls and float the bread on top.

This sounds great but what can u use in place of wine? No alcohol in my house.

In Phase 1 - no bread is allowed. However, this sounds great for a PHase 2 recipe.
