French Onion soup

When I first began cooking, I tried to start with the easiest dishes: Rice, pasta, fried eggs … But,

I’ve never knew that making a soup is one of the easiest things to do, it doesn’t require any particular cooking skill! All you have to do is cut the vegies, put them in the vegies pan, season it and let it cook for 1 hour…
For this week’s recipe, I thought that maybe it’s more reasonable to start with soups and nothing is easier than a typical french onion soup!
5 or 6 onions
70 g of butter
1,5 L water
2 garlics
1 cube (chicken stock)
1 tablespoon floor
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon thym
2 bayleaves
1 nutmeg
Gruyere cheese
4 slices of bread
1-  Put the butter in a hot pot, add your chopped onions and season with salt, black pepper and garlic then cook it on low heat… Keep an eye on it, so it won’t stick to the pot!
2- When the onions become tender add sugar and floor, keep stirring it !
3- 2 minutes later, add thym, nutmeg, bayleaves and water.
You’re soup will be ready in the next 45 minutes… Meanwhile, arrange thick slices of crusty bread and toast them; coat both sides with butter ( if you want you can sprinkle some garlic too) .
When soup is ready, ladle it into bowls and float the bread toasts on top of then cover it with cheese.

Bon appétit.
