Snackshot of the Day: French Onion Soup

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a bowl of French onion soup. French onion soup is the perfect rich soup for a cold winter day. It's typically made with onions, white wine, beef stock, and Gruyère. For a vegetarian version, use vegetable, not beef, stock and red wine instead of white wine. The secret to getting richness without the beef stock is a cup of coffee. The melty Gruyère is really the best part, though.
