French Onion Soup
Today i made onion soup. I decided that yesterday, when i went to the market. I bought a kilo of white onions.
Before i started i did do a quick search for a recipe. I came across this article How to make the Best French Onion Soup on seriouseats.com. I do think the pan i used has a really thick bottom, since i cooked the onions for an hour, and they still were not brown. Since i started at 5pm, i didn’t wait, i added two sliced garlic, a bit of flour, a bit of red wine and a liter of water with two cubes of dried beef broth. I let it simmer for another half hour to let the taste develop more.
I then tore a rye spelt bread in a couple of pieces, added some freshly grated parmesan cheese on top and put it under the grill for around 7 minutes.
It was good!
- 500 gr of white onions, three medium sized ones myself
- 50 grams of butter
- a tablespoon of flour
- some white or red wine, i used red, it was the only wine i had, but with the white you do keep the original colour of the onions
- 1 liter of beef broth
- some nutmeg, mace and pepper
