French Onion Soup
There is not much that is more soothing and warming than a bowl of homemade onion soup! While most of us have only savored this dish in a restaurant, once you see how simple it is, you will make it a family favorite.
I do not make mine with a crouton, but I do add a big pinch of freshly grated gruyere or swiss cheese to melt into my soup.
If you have had bariatric surgery, pair your bowl of goodness with turkey and lettuce roll ups, as this is not a protein food.
