Onion soup is one of the dishes most identified with French cuisine. It has always been considered the food of the poor, because of the cheap price of onion throughout history, and over the years every person who found himself in the kitchen made such a soup with minor changes in the recipe. Please note - the color of the soup is a direct result of the cooking time of the onion - the longer the onion cooks, the more its color will brown. Everyone should make onion soup at least once in the winter or autumn season, look at the rain out the window, imagine yourself at a bistro, and eat with pleasure. By the way, here's a tip, if we are under the weather then it is really worth preparing. There is nothing like releasing onion fumes in the open air to open up everything that is blocked for us!

  • 8 medium-sized onions (if you want you can change half of them to red onions)
  • 50 g butter
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 3 tablespoons of flour or onion soup powder
  • 7 cups of water (or chicken broth)
  • Salt to taste
  • Allspice and bay leaves (remove before serving)
Peel all the onions and cut them into thin strips but not too thin.
Heat a little olive oil in a saucepan and add all the onion. Add the butter and fry the onion on a high flame. If you want a brown soup, you can continue frying for about 15 minutes until slightly browned. Season with salt and mix.
After the onion softens a little and gets a delicate golden color, add the flour or powder, and mix.
Add the white wine, stir for about half a minute and let the alcohol vapor evaporate.
Add the water or the broth, mix well, add the bay leaves and allspice, and cook with a closed lid for about an hour over low heat.
Be careful and don't let it stick to the bottom.
At the end, pour into plates. You can add some croutons and grated cheese or slices of yellow cheese on top before serving.
Perfect! Enjoy!
