This French Onion Soup can be made in a Kenwood kCook Multi in less than half an hour. It's a lot faster than the traditional slow-cooked version, but it's still incredibly tasty. We used beef stock in ours, but for a vegetarian version, replace with vegetable stock. A sprinkle of gruyere on top wouldn't hurt either!
