We are out to lunch. I decided that I wanted a little something more than just my usual salad with salmon, so I ordered French onion soup. The problem is that I had to order it without the best parts due to my diet--the bread and the cheese. So I just had a bowl of broth and onions. And it was delicious!

Cheese is optional, but we put garlic on the bread, and I would miss something without the bread in an onion soup. If it was a French restaurant, you should look if they had a chicken soup, it is usually an onion soup with chicken, but without bread and cheese, and better than what you got.

Have not had this dish in ages.... Needs the garlicky croutons though, I agree.

This was the only soup on the menu I could have that worked with my diet. It was onion or nothing.

The broth is still yummy by itself.

It has such a long flavour so even with the broth and onions it would still have plenty of flavour.
