This week on the homestead we’ve been sick. Fighting head colds and still trying to run the homestead is no fun, so we took a few days of rest. When my eldest is sick, she requests our classic french onion soup recipe. After I called in my prayer warriors, I was able to grant her request.
Our classic french onion soup recipe is nothing fancy, but it’s special.
What makes our recipe different from other recipes is our homemade bone broth. This broth is AH-MAY-ZING. It’s got tons of nutrients from the chicken bones of the birds we harvest along with the nutrients from chicken feet. Yes, we add these to our bone broth. We also season it up real nice, so it has tons of flavor! Because we strain our bone broth we get a nice smooth texture.
This one ingredient makes all the difference in our classic french onion soup recipe. It’s nutrient dense, classic, gluten and dairy free and perfect for a sore throat or upset stomach.
Some people add a crisp piece of cheese bread across the top and bake it. Others eat french onion soup as an appetizer or lunch. We stay clear of heavy carbs on the homestead, so we don’t eat it with bread (although that’s a wonderful way). You can certainly make that adaptation if you choose.
We hope you’ll love it as much as we do! Please share it and pin it so you know where to always find it!
~Until next time,
