Ingredients

  • 175g butter, softened
  • 5 large brown onions, thinly sliced
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1.2 litres chicken stock or vegetable stock for vegetarians
  • 25g flour
  • 375ml dry cider
  • 8 slices of bread stick
  • 4-5 tbsp grated gruyere cheese
  •    

Method

Melt 125g butter in a heavy-based saucepan. Add onions and season. Cook gently until onions are soft but have not coloured (about 20 minutes). Meanwhile, bring stock to the boil. Mix together flour and remaining butter to make a paste. Using a whisk, slowly add paste to stock and whisk to combine. Re-boil and remove from the heat. Add cider to the onions and simmer to reduce by half. Then add the stock and simmer for 20 minutes. Check seasoning. Preheat a grill. Pour soup into bowls and top with two croutons each. Sprinkle with cheese to cover croutons and brown lightly under the grill. Serve immediately.
