Valentine's French Onion Soup

Updated: Apr 28, 2020

Looking for a super affordable, classy date idea for your Valentine? Stay in this year, and show your love through beautiful food & make this DELICIOUS decadent French Onion Soup!

Me being me, I forgot an essential item.... BREAD! It was still phenomenally delicious & beautiful without it.

I used Cook's Best Soups as inspiration for this recipe. This is actually the first in a series of soups from Cook's Best Soups & Stews that I will be sharing. I picked this magazine up a couple months ago but I still haven't used it. It has 50+ soup recipes so... more will be coming at you VERY soon! This is not sponsored, but holla at ya girl if you want to collab <3


3 lbs onions

1 lb shallot

3 tablespoons butter

½ cup vinegar (apple cider preferred, I used rice)

4 cups chicken broth

1 tablespoon brown sugar

4 cups beef broth

2 sprigs rosemary

2 slices of gruyere, swiss, or havarti cheese

Parsley (do not chop)

Salt, pepper


Chop onions & shallots

Dice butter into small pieces

Add onions, shallots, butter, salt, pepper, vinegar, chicken broth, beef broth, rosemary & parsley into pressure cooker

Pressure Cook on Regular for 25 minutes

Once safe, open pressure cooker, remove rosemary & parsley then stir soup

Pour soup in a small porcelain dish & float a round of toasted bread on the soup & layer cheese (havarti, gruyere, swiss), sprinkle cayenne pepper and or paprika if desired

Place dish into oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted

Safely remove (optional)

& ENJOY! <3

This was lightly creamy, definitely decadent, and to be honest, I didn't miss the bread. But to each their own, live yo life!
