French Onion Soup FAQ

What is the best way to thicken French onion soup? 

The easiest way to thicken your French onion soup is with flour. You can also use cornstarch if you don’t have any flour. Remember to never add the flour or cornstarch directly to the soup – otherwise you run the risk of it clumping. Instead, add small amounts to the mixture, bringing it to the boil and then simmering again. 

What’s the difference between French onion soup and onion soup?

French onion soup features caramelized onions, beef broth and melted cheese with croutons. Onion soup has a milder taste without cheese or crouton toppings. Both offer distinct flavours and appeal to different preferences.

Why does my French onion soup taste bland?

To improve the blandness of your French onion soup: add more seasoning, caramelize onions longer than usual, use high-quality beef broth, simmer for extended time and include melted cheese with crouton as toppings for added richness.
