The snow day yesterday made me crave soup, so I grabbed the three pathetic little leftover onions from the pantry and made soup. I was too lazy to find Mom’s recipe and I had almost nothing in the house, so this was improvised, but we loved it. Mmmmm.
All we needed was some wine, bread and cheese 😦
This picture isn’t mine, but it looked pretty much the same (mine was darker).
3 smallish yellow onions, sliced thin
butter, olive oil for pan
pinch thyme, salt, pepper
1 cup condensed beef consomme
1 cup water
2 cups veggie stock
Saute onions in butter and oil and season with salt, pepper and thyme (30-45 min) until onions are totally soft and starting to caramelize.
Add liquids and quickly bring to a boil, then lower heat to simmer for 15 minutes (slow tiny bubbles).
Eat before Chris gets to it and don’t cook before a house showing unless they really like the smell of onions. 😉
