Keto French Onion Soup

Keto French Onion Soup

This tasty, low-carb Keto French Onion Soup is cheesy. Use your Instant Pot/slow cooker to prepare this .

The beginning of new year’s diets for most individuals implies that the new year is almost here.  Heck, I even created The Healthy Low-Carb Slow Cooker Cookbook, a book with low carb recipes (shameless plug). My favorite soup is French onion soup, so I made a low-carb/keto version of it.

Yes, bread gives a dish a special something, but I believe the flavors that we all adore are present in this soup even without it.

THE ONES

Caramelized onions are used in classic French onion soup. The onions used in this dish are not caramelized. The onions are added uncooked and cooked until quite tender but not necessary caramelized. Although it’s not done in the conventional manner, it’s a lot faster, and in my opinion, the soup is still excellent without it.

Which variety of onions are best to use? The white onions I used. You can use the onion of your choice, whether it is red, white, sweet, or yellow.

CARAMELIZING ONIONS

The good news is that you can make French onion soup in a slow cooker or electric pressure cooker without having to use caramelized onions if you’re one of those folks who believes that it must be cooked that way (Instant Pot). You can now sit back and let the appliance do the work rather than standing over a stove stirring onions. Just combine the remaining ingredients for the French onion soup when the onions are caramelized to your preference.

Since caramelizing onions in a slow cooker takes 10 to 12 hours, if you plan to use one, I advise starting the night before, caramelizing the onions overnight, and then adding the remaining ingredients to begin the soup the next morning. It is completed a great deal faster when using an electric pressure cooker.

HOW TO CHOOSE A CHEESE

The melted cheese on top of this recipe for French onion soup in the slow cooker is what I adore most about it.

I’ll use grated Gruyère cheese if I’m feeling fancy. However, most days I only add one or two slices of swiss cheese. It doesn’t matter if the cheese is sliced or shredded.

USE HOW MUCH CHEESE?

The recipe calls for two cups of cheese, but you may certainly add more if you like cheese. Desire less? Apply less. If I’m using shredded cheese, I often top each ramekin with about 1/3 cup of shredded cheese; if I’m using sliced cheese, I typically top each ramekin with two slices. Be aware that the cheese will a little bit sink into the ramekin because this is a low-carb version and there is no bread to lay the cheese on top of.

Because of this, your soup may appear to have less cheese than it actually does. Nothing wrong with a bunch of cheese, really.

BROIL (THE FINAL STEP) (THE FINAL STEP)

Until the cheese is well bubbling and beginning to brown, broil the soup. I advise keeping an eye on the soup as it broils to prevent the cheese from burning. Warm servings of this soup with stringy cheese are preferred.
