French Onion Soup

21 Nov

As nights get cooler this month, there is more temptation for having delicious warm soups. This time I have got for you Onion Soup. The flavors and taste is aromatic and enriching.

The most enticing flavors are of the caramelised onions and slowly cooked broth that turns mellow and sweet laced with some white wine.

Serves 3-4:

For this I used:

3 tbsp butter

2 onions, thinly sliced with the grain to hold their shape

4 garlic flakes, crushed

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper powder

275 ml dry white wine

STOCK

1 carrot – chopped roughly

1 onion – chopped roughly

2 bay leaf

2-3 french beans

1/2 cup broccoli

6-7 peppercorns

2 cloves

4 cups chicken broth

Method:

Firstly, make the stock. In a deep sauce pan, add the chicken broth and the rest of the ingredients  like carrot, onions, broccoli, french beans, bay leaf, peppercorns and cloves. Bring it to boil. Strain it and Keep aside.

Secondly, to caramelise onions. Add butter to a skillet, then the onions and the garlic. Let it turn brownish in color. Avoid letting it stick to the skillet.

Thirdly, add the stock to the onions. Now season it with salt and pepper. Add the dry white wine. Bring it to boil.

Serve hot with some breads!!
