Recreate this classic French soup in half the time.


  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) of olive oil
  • 2 large onions (220 g), peeled and sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves (6 g), peeled
  • 3 cups (720 ml) of best-quality fresh beef broth (warm)
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) of coconut aminos
  • salt
  • fresh thyme, to garnish


  1. Heat the olive oil in a pressure cooker on the stove top and add the sliced onions. Cook over moderately high heat until they are starting to darken and caramelize.
  2. Add the garlic and continue to cook the mixture until very dark and jammy. Do not allow the mixture to burn, but you do want to get a lot of color on the onions.
  3. Pour in the warm beef broth and bring to a simmer. Secure the lid of the pressure cooker and cook under full pressure for 30 minutes.
  4. Allow the pressure cooker to decompress before safely removing the lid.
  5. Season the soup with a little coconut aminos and salt. Divide between two bowls and garnish with fresh thyme leaves.
