Alsatian Onion Soup
Peel onions and cut into fine strips. Heat butter in a saucepan and saute onions until translucent. Add broth and wine, season with nutmeg, thyme and cumin powder and simmer for 25-30 minutes.
Toast bread slices and rub with peeled garlic clove. Squeeze garlic through a garlic press and add to the soup. Season soup with salt and pepper and pour into ovenproof soup bowls. Place bread slices on top of soup, sprinkle with cheese and place soup under a broiler for a few minutes until cheese is melted, watching carefully. Serve immediately.
