French Onion Rice


  • 6 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large onions, divided (about 1 ½ lb.)
  • 1 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 c. white wine (optional)
  • 2 c. basmati rice, rinsed and drained
  • 3 c. low-sodium beef broth 
  • Freshly shredded Gruyère, for serving
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. In a large pot over medium heat, melt 3 tablespoons butter and olive oil. Add onions and salt and cook, stirring frequently, until caramelized, 35 to 40 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. To pot, melt 1 more tablespoon of butter, then add garlic, thyme, and pepper and stir until fragrant, 1 minute. Add in wine and let cook until mostly evaporated.
  3. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter and let melt. Add in rice, stirring until grains are toasted, 3 to 4 minutes. Return ¾ of the caramelized onions to pot, reserving the rest for topping, and stir to combine. 
  4. Stir in broth, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer until rice is tender, about 18 minutes. 
  5. Remove from heat, and let covered pot stand for 5 minutes before removing the lid. Fluff rice gently with a fork.
  6. Top with remaining caramelized onions, Gruyère, more thyme, and a squeeze of lemon, if desired, before serving.
