Autumn has arrived, or at least that's what the calendar says, so dinners arrive at home where soups and creams begin to take center stage. Today's recipe, the traditional onion soup recipe , is one of the star recipes at home, and best of all, it's very easy to make, but it's one hundred percent comforting!

So come on, stay with me and I'll tell you how I've prepared this wonderful soup, which with several touches can be one of your star dishes at this time if you have friends over for dinner.

In my opinion you will need two important things: a good vegetable broth, ideally you have it ready the day before; and a good pot in which to prepare this traditional recipe -nothing better for this than the Emile Henry pot , inspired by traditional clay pots, nothing better for a grandmother's recipe.



  • 1.5 liters of vegetable broth, (2 leeks, 3 carrots, and onion)
  • 3 large sweet onions
  • olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Grated parmesan
  • Bread slices


  1. First, prepare the vegetable broth. To do this, wash all the ingredients, cut them into pieces, fry them in the Emile Henry ceramic pot with a little oil and salt . Add the water and cook for about 30 minutes - ideally it should be as concentrated as possible. Strain and reserve in the pot.
  2. In a frying pan , add oil and when it is hot, fry the onions with a little salt and pepper (be careful at this point, because the broth already has salt and you do not want to overdo it) , and continue until you see that they are golden. Once they are ready, add the onion to the pot and leave for about 20 minutes heating again but without boiling.
  3. While it is cooking, toast a few slices of bread and sprinkle with grated cheese, set aside.
  4. Serve the soup in plates or tureens that you can put in the oven for a few minutes (such as those from Revol ), place the slices of bread and gratin all in the oven.
  5. If you prefer, you can toast the bread slices in a pan with a little butter and cheese, which will also melt. Place them on top of the bowls and serve. Grate cheese on top again if you want, it will melt from the same heat.

As you can see, it is very easy to prepare and it is a soup that everyone likes. Good luck and happy autumn!
