- 2 lbs yellow onions, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup dry white wine (optional)
- 6 cups beef or vegetable broth
- 1/4 cup Ritual Powders Mushroom Bomb Souper Mix
- 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves, chopped
- 1 bay leaf
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 baguette, sliced and toasted
- 1 1/2 cups grated Gruyère or Swiss cheese
In a large pot or Dutch oven, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the thinly sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and caramelized, about 25-30 minutes.
Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
If using, deglaze the pot with the white wine, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the wine is mostly evaporated.
Stir in the beef or vegetable broth, Ritual Powders Mushroom Bomb Souper Mix, thyme leaves, and bay leaf. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 20-25 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste, and remove the bay leaf.
Preheat your oven broiler.
Ladle the soup into oven-safe bowls, and place them on a baking sheet. Top each bowl with one or two toasted baguette slices, and generously sprinkle the grated Gruyère or Swiss cheese over the bread.
Place the bowls under the broiler and broil until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 2-3 minutes. Be sure to watch them closely to avoid burning.
Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven, and serve the Mushroom Bomb French Onion Soup hot, garnished with additional thyme leaves, if desired. Enjoy this comforting and flavorful dish!
