Try this as a tasty and healthy side dish for something different than your normal vegi side. Also, note there are some super cool health benefits to onions. Read more about that in my post about why you should eat more onions.
French Onion Soup Recipe
1.5 pounds of sweet onions sliced
salt and pepper
4 slices of whole grain/whole wheat bread (the tougher and crustier, the better)
1/2 cup dry white wine (optional)
2 cups of low-sodium chicken broth
a pinch of dried thyme or 3 sprigs fresh
1 cup of shredded mozzarella, provolone, or Swiss cheese
Note: Portion Fix container count if recipe is split into 4 servings = Approx. 1 green (a tad less), 1 yellow, 1 blue.
Note: If you use the wine, technically, that should count toward your yellow, BUT there is only 1/8 of a cup in each serving, so I do not count this. If you want to be precise, you can substitute the wine for an additional 1/2 cup of chicken broth instead.
