Never underestimate the mighty onion! As you’ll know if you’ve read my book Eat Beautiful , I always recommend packing your diet around fresh, seasonal produce, and in winter it’s time to pack in some immune-boosting seasonal favourites. Onions have natural antiviral properties and boost circulation while helping to fight off seasonal viruses. Their anti-inflammatory properties, fibre content and vitamins C and E make them a skin-friendly, healthy addition to your diet and what better way to champion this pantry staple than with a hearty French onion soup recipe? This Parisian favourite is the ultimate winter go-to and better still, it’s super easy. Enjoy!

Winter Recipe: French Onion Soup
245 CALORIES PER SERVING
1 tbsp olive oil
700g onions (about 5 medium onions), thinly sliced in rings
3 garlic cloves, finely diced
1.2 litres vegetable stock
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Sea salt and black pepper
- Place the oil and butter in a large pan set over a high heat. Once melted, add the onions and garlic. Sauté for 5 minutes or until the onions are tinged with brown.
- Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. By then, the base of the pan should be covered in a rich, nut-brown, caramelised film.
- Pour in the stock and vinegar and stir in well, scrape the bottom of the pan to incorporate the caramelised onions. Bring to a simmer, then turn down the heat and leave for 1 hour. Season before pouring into bowls.
