French Onion Soup from Scratch

A while back, I recieved a Bellini Kitchen Master to try out. Honestly, it’s been sitting in my kitchen for weeks collecting dust because #1, I was intimidated by it, and #2, I didn’t think I would like it, and #3, I’ve just been dang busy, you guys. Busy travel schedule, fourth quarter blogging craziness, and kid activities on steroids – it’s just been a bit much. I admit it.

But I knew I had to try that thing out because the company wants me to give one to a lucky reader!, and honestly, all of the excuses I just listed mean I REALLY need to use the Bellini that much more. Because it is seriously easy and does a great job as a kitchen helper, especially for the lazy cook like me. After perusing through the cookbooks that came with the machine, I finally decided to make French Onion Soup.

Effortless French Onion Soup from Scratch

French Onion Soup is something my husband has been begging me to make for quite some time, but I never made it for him before. Honestly, the thought of chopping and cooking all of those onions just makes me cringe. But the Bellini promised minimal effort on my part, so it’s the recipe I chose. And boy was it easy! And Delicious!!!

To make this soup:

bellini makes french onion soup from scratch super easy by chopping the onions for you.

Peel and quarter onions and throw them with some butter into the Bellini. Chop them in the Bellini. (it takes 25 seconds). No crying. No running mascara. No hurting hands. Onion chopping bliss. 😀

Cook the chopped onion and the butter for an hour (not once do you have to stir them because the machine does it for you), add the liquids and herbs and cook again for 45 minutes.

Top with bread and cheese and melt in the oven. DONE! Restaurant quality French Onion Soup from scratch for seriously ridiculous lack of effort. WIN!

Now if you don’t have a Bellini, you can still make this recipe. Just chop those onions by hand, throw them in a pot and stir and stir and stir. Add the liquids, and stir and stir some more. Then top with bread and cheese, melt, and enjoy. Not a big deal to make this recipe even by hand, honestly. But the Bellini makes this recipe oh so easy.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 pounds Vidalia onions (about 4 medium), quarted
  • 1 teaspoon REAL Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 TBS unbleached white flour
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups homemade beef broth or good quality store-bought beef broth
  • For the bread
  • 1/2 loaf French bread
  • garlic clove
  • 1 cup (or more) shredded Gruyere Cheese

Instructions

  1. Add butter and quartered onions to the Bellini and chop on speed 1 for 15 seconds. Make sure the lid is secured on your machine or it won't turn on.
  2. Turn the heat on to 100 C and cook for one hour on speed 1. Remove the measuring cap from the lid.
  3. Next add the wine, beef broth, spices, and flour, and cook 45 more minutes at 100 C on speed 1.
  4. While it's cooking, slice up a nice French bread, two pieces per bowl. Place in 400 degree oven and cook for 1 minute per side, until the bread is dry but not brown. Rub a garlic clove over one side of the bread and set aside.
  5. Once the Bellini has finished cooking, ladle soup into oven-safe bowls and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  6. Top the soup with bread and shredded Gruyere cheese.
  7. Transfer baking sheet to oven and broil until cheese is melted and bubbling, 4 to 8 minutes.
  8. If you don't have oven safe bowls, you can put the bread on parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake in the oven, then top the soup with the bread.
  9. Enjoy!
