How to Make Onion Soup

This onion soup is one of the simpler French recipes to make and combines a salty-sweet flavor.

In a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker, combine broth, the water, onion, celery, carrot, lentils, ham, and thyme.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3-1/2 to 4 hours.
Stir in spinach. Ladle into bowls. Top each serving with Parmesan cheese. Makes 6 servings.


  • For Easy Cleanup:

    Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
