One of my favorite food bloggers, Smitten Kitchen, recently posted an adaptation of Julia Child's French Onion Soup recipe. I tried it out this weekend and pretty much followed her instructions (except to use a homemade veggie broth instead of beef and to use Romano cheese because that's what I had on hand). I'm sorry I failed to take any pictures of my own, but oh my goodness! You should head on over to her site immediately and get to work! The soup was rustic but elegant with complex caramel flavors, and the toasted cheese on top was absolutely mindblowing.
Here she is in all her glory: French Onion Soup Enjoy!
