My husband and I have always loved French Onion Soup, but since he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes a few years ago, I had yet to nail a recipe he could enjoy that didn't scream "the bread is missing!" Finally, after many, many attempts, I nailed it. Please enjoy ~ also good for those on a low carb diet.
Melt Smart Balance and olive oil in heavy pan. Add onion slices and cook on medium for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Watch to make sure onions do not brown. You want them very wilted and tender.
Add in garlic powder, thyme, sherry, broth and water. Cook uncovered on medium for 15 minutes, then cover and cook on medium for 15 minutes. Keep warm until ready to serve.
To serve, divide into four bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan and then top with a slice of each cheese. Heat in microwave until cheese is just completely melted (don't overdo it). Serve and enjoy! YUM!
