Blowing winds, non-stop rain, grey skies…I guess the summer is over. But looking at the bright side, it’s the perfect time to enjoy a good bowl of hot homemade soup 🙂
And what’s better than a hot steamy onion soup. It doesn’t have to be fancy and served in an expensive restaurant. It just has to be GOOD.
Here’s an easy to make recipe for a great onion soup. The great thing is that even if you’re a first timer this can’t go wrong.
It’s easy to make, with simple ingredients and a million dollar taste. You can always upgrade the soup with croutons.
Enjoy your soup.
- 6 large onions
- 3 tbsp white flour
- 1 cup wine (it can be red or white- the only difference will be the color of the soup)
- 3 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- 7 cups chicken/ vegetable broth
- Black pepper
- Peel and slice the onions
- Melt the butter in a big pot over medium heat and add the oil to it once melted
- Place the sliced onions in the pot with the melted butter and oil, add the nutmeg and mix together. Stir the onions once every few minutes to ensure that they do not stick to the bottom of the pot or burn. Sir and saute until onions are golden and semi transparent (After about 20 minutes or so, you'll notice that the onions are soft and yellowish and that the liquid vaporized almost completely)
- Add the flour in gradually and mix well to ensure that it's incorporated with the onions and there are no lumps
- Pour the wine in and mix well
- Add the 7 cups of broth, salt and pepper and stir
- Once the soup boils Lower the heat to low
- Cover pot and let cook for about 35-40 minutes while stirring occasionally
