What a simple way to improve your “usual” onion soup – add a piece of sourdough bread to thicken it! 😀
For onion soup I sautee at least two medium or large onions (I prefer red onions – they are sweeter) on a bit of water with a pinch of salt, the longer the better, they should be really soft. Then I add two bowls of hot water (or as much as needed) and bring to boil and then simmer, 5-10 more minutes. This time I added also cubes cut up from half a slice of our homemade bread. Let them (almost) dissolve, stirring at times. Towards the end add about a teaspoon of ginger juice and diluted brown miso to taste.
