Gluten and Dairy Free French Onion Soup

Hello everyone

According to French lore, onion soup was invented when King Louis XV was out hunting and found himself stranded late at night in a hunting lodge.    The story states the only things in the cupboard were onions, butter and champagne resulting in the first French Onion soup.  This is probably just a fable but I love these little history of food tales.  It is thought the dish evolved to have a large cheese crouton to make it a more hearty meal.

I’ve had this on my to do list for absolutely ages after having a gluten and dairy free version in a little French bistro.  Definitely glad I took the time to get round to adding it to my recipe collection.
