Puffed French Onion Soup


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 egg, for pastry wash

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Melt the butter in a saucepot over medium-high heat.

Step 2: Add onions and cook them until caramelized, about 10-15 minutes.

Step 3: Once the onions are caramelized, add some stock to deglaze the saucepot.

Step 4: Add the thyme and rest of the vegetable stock.

Step 5: Simmer the soup for 10 minutes.

Step 6: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 7: Roll the puff pastry to 1/4-inch thick.  Place ramekins on top of the puff pastry to get an idea of how to cut them.  Go slightly over the edges and cut your puff pastry.

Step 8: Ladle the soup into the ramekins.  Top with mozzarella, reserving 2 tablespoons.

Step 9: Place the pastry on top of the soup, gently pinching the edges to the ramekin dish.  Brush pastry with egg.

Step 10: Top the pastry with more mozzarella and bake for 12-14 minutes, puff pastry will begin to brown.

Step 11: Allow to cool slightly and serve warm.
