A much faster recipe than the traditional French onion soup, but almost just as comforting.
|3||onions, thinly sliced||600 g|
|3 tbsp||butter, unsalted||40 g|
|2 tbsp||cornstarch||14 g|
|3 cups||chicken broth||750 mL|
|1||bay leaf||0.1 g|
|1 pinch||salt [optional]||0.1 g|
|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
|1/4 cup||Cheddar cheese, grated||20 g|
Before you start
- Melt the butter in a pot over medium-low heat. Add the onions, then cook 6-7 min with occasional stirring. Sprinkle the onions with the cornstarch and cook the mixture, with stirring, for 3 min.
- Add the broth and the bay leaf, bring the soup to a boil, then simmer it, covered, for 20 min, until the onions are tender. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
- Let the soup cool down a few minutes, then purée it in a blender until smooth. Ladle the soup into bowls. Sprinkle each bowl with grated cheese then serve.
