Nutritional Guidelines (per serving)

(Nutrition information is calculated using an ingredient database and should be considered an estimate.)


  1. Melt the Country Crock® Original Spread in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, sauté, stirring often until the onions turn golden brown and caramelize.
  2. Stir in the wine and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Add the beef stock, thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat and simmer. Stir occasionally, for about 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the thyme sprigs and bay leaves. Stir in white wine vinegar, season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Add 1 ½ tablespoons of Country Crock® Original Spread to a nonstick pan on medium heat. Add the croutons and fry until golden brown, stirring occasionally to ensure an even toasting.
  5. Divide soup into ovenproof bowls. Place onto a baking sheet. Top with the croutons to cover the surface of the soup completely, then sprinkle with both cheeses. Place the soups into the oven and broil until golden brown and the cheeses have melted, about 2 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately.
