French Onion Soup
Peel the onions and cut into thin rings. Heat the oil in a saucepan and saute the onions for 10-15 minutes, until soft. Season with sugar, salt and pepper. Simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are light brown.
Pour in the broth and bring to a boil. Simmer for another 10 minutes. Peel the garlic and press into the soup. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Pour the soup into 4 soup ramekins. Place two slices of baguette on each and spread the cheese on top. Bake for 5-10 minutes at 220°C (approximately 425°F), until the cheese has melted. Serve with freshly ground pepper.
