French Onion Soup


2 tablespoons butter
3 medium yellow onions, diced
2 teaspoons flour
4 cups beef broth
1/4 cup red wine
6 slices Alessi Toasts
3/4 cups grated Gruyere cheese

Melt butter in a heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until soft and translucent, being careful not to brown.  Sprinkle in flour and stir. Add broth and red wine and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes stirring occasionally.

When soup is almost done, line a baking sheet with foil and place toasts on it. Evenly sprinkle cheese over  toast and put in oven on broil until cheese is melted and slightly browned. Ladle soup into 6 small bowls and top with  toast.

*This recipe can be found on the back of the Alessi Whole Wheart Toasts package.
