Extreme Budget, Day Thirteen - Soupreme Monday 7 Onion Soup

Extreme Budget, Day Thirteen - Soupreme Monday 7 Onion Soup

I make this soup once a month in the colder months. The Nudge just adores it. I'm not quite sure why and if you ask him he says the same thing...."I don't know why, I just do".

It is a simple soup to make, no one need have any special knife skills. A basic chop and drop soup.

Ingredients

  • It is a simple soup to make, no one need have any special knife skills. A basic chop and drop soup.
  • I like a fortified wine with slow cooked onions, so I added a tablespoon of Madeira just to kick it up a notch.
  • As many times as I make this soup I am always surprised at how easily I forget how good it really is for such simple ingredients.
