Creamy Onion Soup


This is the kind of thing I wish I had to eat when we got back from Florida. We went from 90+ degree temps to 40 degree temps with hail in Chicago. Ahh, good times.

Unfortunately I made this quite a while before vacation and, since I am both behind on my blog and ever-forgetful, didn’t remember that I had specifically made this soup for the O-foods for Ovarian Cancer Awareness event, until I saw it in my post drafts. Sigh. So, my apologies to not posting this entry in time for the great event!

This soup is really quite simple (except for the gallons of tears I shed cutting all the onions) and tastes great.    A 1/2 cup of sherry or wine, or a 1/2 bottle of beer would certainly not be out of place in this soup, either. I wanted to make this a little creamy so I added some half and half. If you want to make it even thicker, you could make a roux with the half and half (or milk) before adding it to the soup.

You’ll have to excuse the pic. For Christmas this year, I’m hoping to receive the gift of photographing soup well.

  1. I love how such simple soups can have so much flavor thanks to the caramelization of the onions. I just stumbled upon this post and enjoyed your blog. I’d love the gift of photographing soup beautifully as well.

  2. Oh stop, the photo looks great … seriously, it does. And I love onion soup! The traditional French onion soup has always been a favorite but it ttends to be a bit heavy. This looks like a great weeknight soup that I can really enjoy.
