I’ve tried multiple recipes, and this one (adapted from Tyler Florence)takes. the. cake.
In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, melt the stick of butter over medium-high heat. Add the onions, 1 teaspoon salt, and black pepper. Saute for 5-7 minutes, until onions have begun to sweat. Add garlic, thyme, and bay leaves and cook down for 25-30 minutes until onions are extremely soft and caramelized (stirring frequently).
Then add the wine, being sure to scrape the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and then simmer until the wine has evaporated, about 8-15 minutes. Remove the bay leaves and thyme springs. Dust the onions with the flour and cook over medium-low for 5-7 minutes to get rid of the raw flour taste. Add the beef broth, and bring to a simmer for 10 minutes (or until ready to serve).
When ready to serve soup, ladle about 1-1 1/2 cups of soup into an oven safe bowl or soup crock, top with a toasted baguette slice, 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese, and lastly, 2 slices of provolone cheese. Repeat with remaining bowls of soup. Place all of the prepared soup bowls onto a baking sheet and place in the oven. Broil for 2-5 minutes until the cheese is browned and bubbly (keep a close eye on them). Serve hot.
These chicken noodle bowls are loosely based on Pho, a dish my husband and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy at our friends’ house. They do a traditional Vietnamese recipe with beef. The dish has a flavorful beef broth, topped with fresh aromatics and vegetables.
I decided to make this version for my husband who has been sick all weekend with a terrible cold. The ginger root provides a homeopathic element to the broth.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
