French Onion Soup
French onion soup is an onion and water (or beef broth) based soup, traditionally served with croutons and cheese as toppings. The French onion soup is simple to prepare and is one of the most popular soups in restaurants. Onion soups come from ancient times and throughout history were regarded as food for poor people. The modern onion soup has its origins in 18th century France. There are many different versions of onion soup, some of them simpler, others more complex.
The distinct rich flavor of the soup is not due just to the broth, but to the caramelized onions. In fact onion soups in France are usually prepared with water, not with beef broth. Onion soup is served hot.
