Hunkering down and staying in means time to get cooking. Here are a few cold-weather-related recipes that are easy to put together and don’t use out-of-the-ordinary ingredients.

Caramelized Onion Soup

Caramelized Onion Soup

Serves: 6 (main dish servings) / Preparation time: 20 minutes / Total time: 2 hours (not all active time)

2 tablespoons canola oil

4 large onions, peeled, halved, sliced 1/4-inch thick

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

½ cup dry white wine

8 cups low sodium, fat-free beef or chicken broth

1/2 baguette, cut into as many 3/8-inch slices as needed to cover six soup crocks or ramekins

1 ¼ cups shredded Swiss or Gruyère cheese or Muenster cheese

In a large soup pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook the onions gently, stirring frequently, until they’re very soft and have begun to turn a dark golden color, about 35 to 45 minutes. (The onions will cook down considerably.)
