INGREDIENTS:

Soup:

1 Tablespoon of unsalted butter

1 Tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil

3 onions, sliced

2 Tablespoons of whole wheat Flour

4 cups reduced-sodium beef broth

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Croutons:

4 slices whole wheat bread, cubed

1 Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

1 Tablespoon of unsalted butter, melted

1/4 teaspoon, pepper

1/4 teaspoon, salt

1/4 teaspoon, oregano

Preparation:

In a large pot over medium heat, add olive oil and better and let butter melt down.  Add onions, and cook until they are brown and tender (this will take about 30 minutes.)  Add flour to stir to coat.  Add broth and bring to a boil.  Season with salt and reduce heat.  Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place cubed bread on a sprayed baking sheet.  In a mixing bowl, combine oil, butter, oregano, pepper, salt and pepper (for the croutons.)  Brush the mixture on each bread cube and then bake for 5-7 minutes or until crispy.  Ladle soup into bowls, and top with  croutons and cheese.  Allow to sit until the cheese is melted and then serve.
