    Your recipe looks so much more delicious than the French onion soup I had at a local restaurant recently. It was way too salty and had none of the delicious cheeses you mention.

    I bought french onion soup from the market but it was very expensive
    i had it in a diet plan which consists of some fruits and vegs similarly they are in a very short quantity to b taken daily
    simlarly i had to take as much of this soup as i wanted to
    therefore i found it very expensive

    now i read it on the web but it contains beef broth which has a large amount of cholestrol in it
    \

    i only wanted to ask that if it will make me slimer or faten me

    as i have already been suffering from sever fat problems
