Posted by Fernando Acosta on

Savor the essence of a culinary classic with a healthy twist in this Low-Carb French Onion Soup, impeccably tailored for the RJ Legend Mini Dutch Oven Pot Set. This recipe adapts the timeless allure of traditional French Onion Soup to suit a low-carb lifestyle, ensuring you can indulge in rich flavors without compromising your dietary choices.

Using the RJ Legend Mini Pot

The RJ Legend Mini Dutch Oven Pot Set perfectly complements the preparation of French Onion Soup, offering both functional and aesthetic benefits. Its cast iron construction ensures even heat distribution, crucial for caramelizing onions uniformly. The pots' high heat retention and oven-safe design make them ideal for the broiling step, essential for achieving a bubbly, golden crust on the cheese-topped soup. Additionally, their elegant enamel coating and vibrant colors enhance the presentation, adding a touch of sophistication to the dining experience, particularly for special occasions.



  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced (reduced for lower carbs)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon sugar substitute (e.g., erythritol)
  • 2 tablespoons almond flour (as a substitute for all-purpose flour)
  • 6 cups beef broth (low sodium)
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (optional, omit for fewer carbs)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 6 slices of low-carb or keto bread (1/2 inch thick)
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Gruyère or Swiss cheese

Caramelize Onions: Melt butter in each RJ Legend Mini Dutch Oven Pot, add sliced onions and sugar substitute, and cook until caramelized, about 20-30 minutes.


Add Almond Flour and Broth: Sprinkle almond flour over onions, stir, then add beef broth, optional wine, bay leaf, thyme, salt, and pepper, and simmer for 10 minutes.


Prepare Low-Carb Bread and Cheese: Toast low-carb bread slices until golden and grate the cheese.


Assemble and Broil: Preheat the broiler, remove the bay leaf from soup, top each pot of soup with a slice of toast and a generous amount of cheese.


Broil: Broil the pots until the cheese is bubbly and golden, approximately 3-5 minutes, monitoring to avoid burning.

Serve: Remove the pots from the oven, let cool briefly, and enjoy the warm low-carb French Onion Soup.
