Directions

Step 1

Caramelize the sliced onions, garlic, shallots, and leeks in olive oil and butter very well until deep brown and sticky. This will take about 2 hours over low heat. Be careful not to keep the heat too high as the onions deepen in color as they will burn more easily.

Step 2

Add the cumin, thyme, and sherry and stir to deglaze the pot. Add the broth and seasonings and bring to a boil. Simmer for 1 minimum of when hour.

Step 3

Using French onion soup bowls or another steep sided soup vessel, ladle the broth into the bowl leaving 1/2 inch from the top. Place toasted baguette slices on top and cover with sliced cheese. Broil for 2 minutes or until the cheese is golden and melted. Serve immediately.
