Quick French Onion Soup with Cheddar Croutons
Quick French Onion Soup with Cheddar Croutons



  • For the Soup
  • 50g butter
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 100ml red wine
  • 300ml beef stock (or veg stock)
  • Salt and pepper
  • For the Crouton
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 25g mature cheddar, grated
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan, and add the onion to soften. Increase the heat and pour in the wine and stock, then simmer to reduce by a third.
  • Make the croutons by preheating the grill, and drizzling the bread with olive oil and seasoning. Heat a griddle pan, add the bread, and toast for 1 min on each side. Place the toast on a tray, spread over the cheese and mustard, and plenty of black pepper, and grill for 2 mins to melt the cheese. Cut the toast into chunky croutons, and serve on top of your onion soup.
