1. Gratin onion soup

This soup is a classic of Parisian cuisine and is usually served as a starter or as a single dish on cold days. It is a very comforting and tasty soup, made with caramelized onions, meat or vegetable broth, white wine, thyme and grated cheese. To make it healthier, you can use low-fat cheese and whole wheat bread.

Ingredients for 4 people):
– 4 large onions
– 2 tablespoons of olive oil
– 2 tablespoons of flour
– 1 liter of meat or vegetable broth
– 125 ml of dry white wine
– 1 sprig of thyme
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 4 slices of whole wheat bread
– 100 g of grated cheese (emmental, gruyère or whatever you prefer)

– Peel and cut the onions into thin slices.
– Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat and sauté the onions for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden and caramelized.
– Add the flour and cook for a few minutes, stirring well so that lumps do not form.
– Add the broth, wine, thyme, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the soup is thick and aromatic.
– Preheat the oven to 200°C and toast the bread slices on a tray for a few minutes, until crispy.
– Divide the soup into four oven-safe bowls and place a slice of bread on each one. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top and broil in the oven for a few minutes, until the cheese melts and browns.
– Serve the soup hot, accompanied by a green salad if desired.

2. Ratatouille

Ratatouille is a typical vegetable stew from Provence, but also very popular in Paris. It is composed of eggplant, zucchini, pepper, tomato, onion, garlic and Provençal herbs.

Ingredients for 4 people):

– Heat another two tablespoons of oil in the same pan and sauté the zucchini for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden. Season with salt and pepper to taste and reserve in another bowl.
– In the same pan, sauté the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes, until they are soft and transparent. Add the pepper and tomatoes and cook for about 15 minutes, until the pepper is tender and the tomato has released its juice. Add the Provençal herbs, salt and pepper and mix well.
