How to make Onion Soup with Cheese Croutons

I love my friend, Winnie's onion soup very much, even there is too much red wine for me :)

so i change her recipe a little bit, and add some cheese croutons on top, let it look more fancy

1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan, add onion and pepper to pan. Cook 15 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Stir in wine, cook 2 minutes or until wine almost evaporates.

2. Add broth, water and thyme, bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 2+1/2 cups, about 15 minutes. Add salt to taste.

3. Preheat broiler. Place croutons on a baking sheet, sprinkle cheese on top, bake until cheese melts.

4. Pour soup into a serving plate, place 2 to 3 cheese croutons on top, serve immediately.

Editor's note: Soups are a great way to ward off illness in the cooler months, which is especially important if you have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Soups for COPD should include lots of vegetables to provide you with the vitamins you need to stay healthy.
