Onion Soup (last night's dinner)

I made an easy onion soup recipe for dinner and it was DELICIOUS! Who needs restaurants when you can make it yourself? We were so full from the soup that we didn't even eat the pasta I had also prepared.

Here's the recipe for you to try:

2.5 lbs onions sliced in rings

3 cloves minced garlic (I used 3 tsp. from the jar)

1 T. oil

8 cups water

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 pkg. onion soup mix

1/2 tsp salt

Fry the onion and garlic in oil until golden, not brown.

Add water and soy sauce and bring to boil.

Simmer for 40 min.

Serve with bread croutons over cheese. ENJOY!


  1. Since 99% of the time I make my onion soup milchigs (dairy), I always use butter in it, lots of butter. I saute the onions and garlic in a generous supply of butter and then cook the soup pretty much the way you describe above, except for much longer (2+ hours). If I have time, I make spiced croutons in a pan, put them in the bowls of soup, and melt some cheese over it in the broiler for 20-30 seconds per bowl.

  2. That's the fancy recipe. Mine is the easy one. And I try to cook low-fat so I used oil rather than butter. Of course the cheese sort of negates that...


Come again!
