Preparation Tips

If you want your French onion soup to be thicker, you may add an extra pinch of xanthan gum. Add one pinch at a time depending on your desired level of thickness. Gruyere cheese is an awesome choice for a keto diet. You can sprinkle more of it on top of your soup to increase your fat intake without worrying about the carbs.
