  • 3 large white onions, sliced thinly
  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 pinch sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 6 cups water, warm
  • 6 scoops Vital Proteins Beef Broth Collagen
  • fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 loaf french baguette
  • fresh gruyère cheese, grated


  • Turn instant pot on sauté mode. Add butter and allow it to fully melt
  • Add onions, give it a quick stir and cover the pot loosely. Sauté the onions for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • Remove lid, season with salt and pepper. Add sugar and continue to sauté for up to 5 minutes, stirring often until onions are golden brown.
  • Add the wine. Scrape off the bottom of the pot and cook until most of the wine has evaporated. 
  • Meanwhile, dissolve the Vital Proteins Beef Broth Collagen in warm water. Then add in to the pot as well as the thyme.
  • Cover the instant pot and turn pressure valve in lock position. Cancel the sauté mode and manually select high pressure for 6 minutes. 
  • Once cooking is complete, quickly release the pressure.
  • Meanwhile, pre-heat the oven to broil. Scoop the soup into ovenproof bowls and top with a baguette slice. Sprinkle gruyère cheese on top and place under the broiler for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
