Classic French Onion Soup is one of the most tantalizing dishes one can make in a pot. The taste of the onions, butter, cream, the melted cheese, and wine. Wow, my mouth just waters. As you can see from the ingredients though it really can’t be labeled heart healthy.

So this week I present you with a recipe that will both satisfy your taste buds and your heart. Enjoy with a hearty full grain bread and a small glass of red wine.
