Directions on how to prepare Butter rice with French Onion Soup

Add olive oil in your pan and pour in your sliced onions, reduce heat and allow to cook for a while till the onions caramalise. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute or two, just enough to remove the flour taste. Add the wine in slowly while stirring the pan gently; add the bay leaves, garlic, thyme, stir and allow it simmer a bit. At this point, you add your beef stock and allow to boil, season with salt and pepper. Stir and adjust to taste, take out bay leaves.

Now while your onion soup is simmering, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F/ 205 degrees C. Stir in the rice and about two/three cups of onion soup in a 8″x8″ baking pan; stir well. Place your sticks of butter on top and cover with aluminuim foil and bake for 30 minutes. Take it out and serve with your preferred protein or vegetables of your choice
