How to Make It
  1. In a soup pot over medium heat, heat oil. Add onions and thyme and cook about 15 minutes, or until onions begin to brown.
  2. Add red wine, apple cider, broth, salt, if desired, and pepper, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F.
  4. Place bread on a cutting board. Spray both sides with cooking spray, then cut into 1-inch pieces. Place in a small bowl and sprinkle with cheese; toss to coat evenly. Spread on a baking sheet and heat in oven, 5 to 7 minutes, or until bread is toasted. Serve immediately over the soup.
