Healthy Low Fat French Onion Soup

An old world classic that never goes out of style. Only this time, it’s not any french onion soup, it is healthy low fat french onion soup.

Cooking Time: 45 minutes


  • 4 onions, sliced1/2 tsp butterA little olive oil or canola spray3 tablespoons white wineA sprig or two of fresh or dry thyme4 large cups chicken stock (i made this with the stock cube)Salt and pepperA piece of wholewheat toast baked in oven with grated gouda cheese till it browns slightly.1 tsp finely chopped garlic/ 1 tsp garlic paste


Take a heavy bottomed pan.

Add butter and olive oil or spray.

When warm, add onions and garlic.

Now the idea is to keep cooking these onions on a slow flame.they should caramelize in about 20 minutes.

After adding these onions,cook on low for 10 minutes. Now add wine.

Once the onions are nicely caramelized, add the stock add let it come to a boil.

Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Put wholewheat bread in toaster and add grated cheese and let it melt till slightly brown in oven.

Add soup to soup bowl with a good amount of onions. Top with toast and serve.
