Skinny "French" Onion Soup
Posted 24 November 2013 - 04:52 PM
4 cups water (0 cals)
4 Wyler's brand "0 cal" beef bullion cubes (~12 cals)
1 red onion, sliced or diced (40 cals)
Total: 13 cals per 1 cup serving!
Dry sautee your onion peices in a nonstick pan at medium heat. If you choose to use oil or butter, add to total calories. I did not. When/if your onions start sticking, add a few teaspoons of water. But by that time, if heated slowly to start with, they should be ready to add to the broth.
While onions cook, boil water with bullion.
Add onions to broth when onions are translucent, turn down heat to low/medium and simmer together 4-5 minutes.
Enjoy a low cal soup and feel like Betty Crocker at the same time!

So I just made this for dinner and ate it with a couple of Safeway brand wheat "saltines" (they're 60 cal per serving instead of the 70 cals the normal ones have and they taste pretty similar and are cheaper too) and it's amazing! It tastes great and it took me about ten minutes to make it. I made half of a batch and still couldn't even finish it. My mum leaves half or a quarter of an onion in the fridge all the time too so next time I see that in there I'll definitely steal it to make this again. I've been craving something with umami type flavour for a while now and this hit the spot without being a million calories so thank you so much for posting this recipe!
