In the winter, I typically make a slow cooker soup any weekend we are in town. It’s so easy to throw the ingredients into the pot in the morning and let them simmer all day. By the time dinner comes around, you’re done! This soup could not be easier and is so delicious!
Slow Cooker White Bean French Onion Soup
- 2 large white onions diced
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ cup melted butter
- 2 14 oz. cans organic white beans
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- ½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
- 4 cups vegetable stock
- homemade or storebought croutons for garnish*
- shredded parmesan cheese for garnish
Add the diced onions, salt, and melted butter to your slow cooker on high.
Stir to combine and let the onions caramelize for 3 to 5 hours.
Add the beans, oregano, pepper, thyme, and vegetable stock and continue to cook for another 3 hours on high.
Garnish with homemade croutons and shredded Parmesan cheese.
*If you have time, I highly recommend making your own croutons. They are SO much better than store-bought! Below is the recipe I use to make mine.
In a large bowl, combine cubed bread, about 1/4 cup olive oil, several tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese, and pinches of garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Toss well to distribute the ingredients. Spread the bread cubes out on a sheet pan, giving them plenty of space in between. Bake the bread cubes at 375º for about 10 minutes, or until slightly golden brown and crisp. Remove from oven, and enjoy!
