My French Onion Soup is one of the most requested soups that I make. The one ingredient that makes it so very tasty, is the port wine. In this recipe, I have it as an option to add into the soup but I have also made it where I just poured a little port on top after the soup was baked.


  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 4 cups thinly sliced yellow onions
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups reduced sodium beef broth
  • 3 tbsp port wine (optional)
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 4 ½- inch slices ciabatta baguette
  • 4 oz shredded reduced fat Swiss cheese
  • Chopped green onion for topping (optional)


  1. In a stockpot or Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic. Cook for about 45 minutes or until onions reach a golden brown color (i.e. caramelized), stirring frequently.
  2. Add broth, port (optional), thyme and pepper; stir. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
