Classic French Onion Soup

French onion soup is one of my favorite soups to order in a restaurant. I was thrilled to figure out how to make it at home. The key to this recipe is individual, oven proof bowls like the one pictured. I've also found that the beef broth is an essential flavor for this recipe.

Classic French Onion Soup
Serves 2
1 small red onion, sliced
1 can beef broth
2 thick slices of crusty bread
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon black  pepper

The crucial ingredient in this meal--red onion--was part of the food delivery I received earlier in the week from Organics Delivered. I've been cooking with these delicious fruits and vegetables all week.
1. Heat olive oil in sauce pan over medium heat.
2. Add onions and sautee about 5 minutes.
3. Add white wine and stir frequently, until wine is absorbed.
4. Add beef broth, rosemary, and black pepper. Cook about 15 minutes.
5. Divide soup between two oven proof bowls, leaving room at the top.
6. Top soup with bread and shredded cheese.
7. Broil until cheese is golden brown, about 5 minutes.
