Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 5 cups thinly sliced onions (about 2 large)
  • 1 clove garlic sliced
  • 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups thinly sliced small mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 cup dry sherry
  • 1/3 cup wine
  • 4 cups sodium-reduced beef broth
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss-style cheese
  • 4 baguettes

Method

In large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onions, garlic, sugar, thyme and bay leaf, stirring occasionally, until onions are very soft and starting to brown, about
20 minutes.

Add mushrooms, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until well browned, about 10 minutes. Add sherry; cook, scraping up browned bits, until no liquid remains.

Add broth and 1/2 cup (125 mL) water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Discard bay leaf.

Meanwhile, sprinkle cheese over bread slices; broil on baking sheet until golden, about 3 minutes. Ladle soup into bowls; top with croutes.
